… LOST AND FOUND IN THE UKRAINE

Has Sarah Palin been vindicated on the current crisis in Ukraine?

“You betcha.”

The former GOP vice presidential nominee – who tends to aimlessly bloviate her way through life – stated in 2008 that then-U.S. Sen. Barack Obama’s “indecision and moral equivalence” regarding Russian aggression in Georgia “would only encourage (Vladimir) Putin to invade Ukraine next.”

Well, well … guess if you throw enough against the wall …

Obviously Palin – a “neoconservative” – is approaching this whole drama from an establishment Republican interventionist perspective. Which means she thinks “indecision and moral equivalence” should be replaced by “intervention and indignation.”

Also known as “other people’s blood and money.”

But the “even a blind hog finds an acorn every now and again” expression does seem to fit this situation … almost as well as one of Palin’s “Naughty Monkey” heels.

Here’s the thing: While Palin is (or was) correct in predicting American inaction would embolden Russia – that doesn’t mean there needs to be American “action” now.

Why not? Because there is no compelling national interest justifying American intervention in the Ukraine. Period.

Someone needs to advise her against the excessive use of tanning bed.
She is rather “sporty” though.

It wasn’t just Palin. Mitt Romney also warned of Russia’s geopolitical amibitions and was either laughed at or derided by Dems as someone who would cause a new Cold War. Meanwhile, we were assured that the combination of Hillary’s “reset button” and Obama’s “smart diplomacy” would usher in a new era of kum-ba-ya utopianism.

Yeah … I don’t think Russia’s plans for Ukraine had anything to do with Obama’s “indecision and moral equivalence.” There are deeper, more fundamental, issues at play between Russia and the Ukraine, and Obama is irrelevant to them.

Statement: Boobies have no medicinal effect, either on the psyche or general medical health –

This was instantly disproved by several women
who claim the following, in summation:

“The important thing to remember about men is that no matter what they are complaining about, whether its that they hate their jobs, their backs hurt, or
they feel like their lives are ‘empty and meaningless’, popping a singular booby in the mouth of an ailing man not only makes him feel much better but also ceases his incessant complaining.”

Boobies are proven to have a 99% effectiveness
rating against placebo with most non-lethal illnesses, even alleviating chronic muscle and joint pain.

Seems like I remember a French woman, former prostitute, who had been elected to the French House of “whatever”, making a statement from the podium to the her French elected counterparts.,prior to the first Desert War.
Bush the First was building his group of supporting countries.
She asked the French prime minister to appoint her envoy, and let her try to mediate the situation with Hussein.
When asked what specific qualifications she could bring, her reply:
” I have yet to see ANY man who had any fight left in him after one of my blow jobs.”

There once was a girl who wasn’t feeling very pretty so she
went to a genie to make her pretty.

The genie told her that to make her feel pretty, he would make it so that every time someone apologized to her her boobs would increase by one size.

So the girl is walking down the street and someone bumps into her and says, “Oh, I’m sorry,” and the woman’s boobs went up one size.

Then someone accidentally stepped on her foot and said, “I’m sorry,” and her boobs got one size bigger.

Then she’s walking down the street and a man from India bumps into her and says, “Oh my god! A thousand apologies!”

“Not sure of your point” –no point there, really, it’s just that because I gave you 3 likes recently I wanted to give you a week without any ribbing from me – and your week of freedom ended today. You are such an easy target, but that’s because you deliberately set yourself up for it —- so keep up your good work.

I’m no fan of Obama, and I think he’s perceived as weak on the world stage. But he’s not to blame for Ukraine, and I don’t think he has it in his power to change the situation without risking unacceptable consequences.

I don’t blame Obama. We all can’t be as wise a as Palin. Putin maybe only a Mussolini, but there are consequences for doing nothing. China is also watching. Our allies in Europe are watching.

Original Good Old Boy March 6, 2014 at 2:11 pm

Again … what would you have us do?
And Palin probably couldn’t even point to Ukraine on a map. It was probably one of those “big words” she learned during her foreign policy prep. The current situation has nothing to do with the scenario that she “predicted.”

I’m a multi-tasker on the PC but this new format has slowed me down to a crawl because too much screen space is being used for the pictures. It takes waaaaaay too much time to scroll down the page to an article I want to go back to for new comments. It’s also difficult to find an older article that is off the front page unless I can remember which category Sic put it in.
