The 16 Days of Palin Day 7: Flexibility Pens & Putin

This is the 7th of my series of Sarah Palin clips from CPAC 2014 & com­men­tary upon them:

Day 1: The Crowd
Day 2: The Entrance
Day 3: Dr. Seuss Day 4: Why Sarah Feels Good
Day 5: Play­ing Pre­vent
Day 6: Sink­ing Ships

Today things are get­ting a lot worse in Ukraine:
BBC:

Some 95.5% of vot­ers in Crimea have sup­ported join­ing Rus­sia, offi­cials say, after half the votes have been counted in a dis­puted referendum.

Crimea’s leader says he will apply to join Rus­sia on Mon­day. Russia’s Vladimir Putin has said he will respect the Crimean people’s wishes.

Many Crimeans loyal to Kiev boy­cotted the ref­er­en­dum, and the EU and US con­demned it as illegal.

The New York Times:

While the world’s atten­tion is trained on Ukraine, the Russ­ian author­i­ties are crack­ing down on inde­pen­dent news out­lets here, and scores of young jour­nal­ists — a group that drove the protests — are fac­ing unem­ploy­ment. Sev­eral major cable and Inter­net providers have dropped the liberal-​leaning news broad­caster Dozhd, a flag­ship project that began when Dmitri A. Medvedev was pres­i­dent, and its gen­eral direc­tor has announced that it will close within two months.

and Yahoo news report­ing this

A United States sur­veil­lance drone has been inter­cepted above the Ukran­ian region of Crimea, a Russ­ian state arms and tech­nol­ogy group said Friday.

and this:

Rus­sia is the only coun­try in the world real­is­ti­cally capa­ble of turn­ing the United States into radioac­tive ash,” anchor Dmitry Kise­lyov said on his weekly news show on state-​controlled Rossiya 1 television.

Kise­lyov made the com­ment to sup­port his argu­ment that the United States and Pres­i­dent Barack Obama were liv­ing in fear of Rus­sia led by Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin amid the Ukraine crisis.

all of this has hap­pened a week after Sarah Palin said this:

A week ago Sarah Palin stated that pres­i­dent Obama has lit­tle sway over Mr. Putin. Today it’s been proved.

and Mike Bar­ni­cle calls HER the moron?

It’s Sun­day a new week and I hate to start it on a down note but we’ve now had three straight weeks with­out mak­ing our goal.

With­out 15 $25 tip jar hits we will have no prospect of mak­ing mort­gage this month.

I’m going to bluntly say I need you to hit this tip jar if you if this exper­i­ment is going to succeed.

Your call.

A United States surveillance drone has been intercepted above the Ukranian region of Crimea, a Russian state arms and technology group said Friday.

and this:

“Russia is the only country in the world realistically capable of turning the United States into radioactive ash,” anchor Dmitry Kiselyov said on his weekly news show on state-controlled Rossiya 1 television.

Kiselyov made the comment to support his argument that the United States and President Barack Obama were living in fear of Russia led by President Vladimir Putin amid the Ukraine crisis.
