Mark Levin: 'Eggheads' Mock Palin's Ukraine Warnings, Praise Hillary, Kerry
Conservative talk radio host Mark Levin blasted the "eggheads" inside and outside of D.C. that mocked former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin when she warned in 2008 that Russia's Vladimir Putin may invade Ukraine if Barack Obama were elected president.
"She supposedly is the one that's not qualified," Levin said on Friday before saying Palin was one of the few on the national stage who knew what Putin was capable of.
As Breitbart News reported, Palin said then:
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.
Levin said her comment was "dismissed as a very strange comment by the eggheads in and out of Washington." And Levin mocked those who derided Palin for not thinking that "Russia's our friend... they would never go into Ukraine." As Breitbart News reported, Blake Hounshell, who was then at Foreign Policy magazine and is now at Politico, wrote that Palin's comments were "strange."
Levin made the point that Hillary Clinton and John Kerry have made many more gaffes, yet they are routinely touted as being brilliant despite their failures.
John Kerry is God’s gift. And "Sarah Palin wasn’t Secretary of State when Benghazi happened," Levin said. "She wasn’t the Secretary of State when the Middle East went up in flames, was she?"
Levin blasted Kerry for stabbing America's troops who served in Vietnam in the back during his testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in order to launch his political career, and derided Kerry as being Secretary of State when "Red China claimed the China Sea and Russia has claimed Crimea."
Palin, who rarely toots her own horn, simply wrote in a Facebook post on Friday, "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."
