‘Someone has a case of the sads': Editor who dismissed Sarah Palin’s Russia/Ukraine prediction whines

In 2008, Sarah Palin was mocked for suggesting that the election of Barack Obama could result in Russia invading Ukraine. It now seems Palin’s prediction is coming to fruition, in an “uncontested arrival” kind of way.
