Progressives may poke fun at the supposed stupidity of Sarah Palin. But who foresaw the geopolitical consequences of weakness in reacting to the Russians? Palin intuited the patterns of Comrad Wolf as manifest by Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
How much respect have the Russians shown for President Obama's reset of relations and his red lines? Maybe it's because Hillary Clinton's State Department presented a red button which read "pregruzka" which actually means "overload" instead of reset. More likely, it is the truth in Mr. Obama's "hot mike" moment when now Russian Federation Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev promised to transmit to Comrad Putin that POTUS will have more flexibility after his election.
