Caribou Barbie is in a joyous rapture because in 2008 she made a statement about Russia invading the Ukraine. So she's qualified and serious as a presidential candidate, you betcha.
Sarah Palin Is Actually Gleeful About Russia Invading The Ukraine
March 2, 2014

The life of the Rogue One just keeps more getting ridiculous by the second. Only she would drudge up embarrassing moments from her horrific 2008 campaign run as VP with John McCain and use it to gloat on the possible suffering of the Ukrainians.

After her initial introduction to the nation, which got conservative men hotter than a summer day in Nevada, Sarah had to sit down with the press and prove that she was a serious politician. Well, that didn't turn out too well for her, but it did provide Tina Fey with a comedy goldmine. This one line defined Palin's political mentality, forever.

"I can see Russia from my house!"

Now, you can actually see very tiny parts of Russia from various spots in Alaska, but who in their right mind would bring that up in a serious interview to show off their foreign policy chops? She embarrassed herself, John McCain and dashed any hopes they had of reaching the White House. Since then, she's said a whole host of ridiculous things. We've documented too many to count on C&L, because that's our job and not yours.

So I was kind of fascinated and disgusted by her proclamation that she predicted Putin would invade the Ukraine.

Yes, I could see this one from Alaska. I'm usually not one to Told-Ya-So, but I did, despite my accurate prediction being derided as “an extremely far-fetched scenario” by the “high-brow” Foreign Policy magazine. Here’s what this “stupid” “insipid woman” predicted back in 2008: "After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama's reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia's Putin to invade Ukraine next."

It takes a special person to gloat about an offhand remark they made almost six years ago and then try to prop it up as some sort of a trueinsight. Even a broken clock is right...oh, never mind.
