Posted on 04/17/2014 12:11:09 PM PDT by servo1969
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin fired back against Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday calling him a "silly little man" after he said that he was not interested in invading Alaska.
Putin downplayed the value of Alaska during a question-and-answer session in Moscow today, pointing out that it was a cold northern territory.
What would you need Alaska for? he said, advising Russians "not be overenthusiastic about the state.
Mr. Putin, such a silly little man on this matter of invading Alaska, Palin said in a written statement to Breitbart News, pointing out that it was obvious that Russia got screwed after selling the land to the United States in 1867 for $7.2 million.
Sure, in hindsight your czars of old may have felt you got screwed in the deal when Abraham Lincolns Secretary of State scored on this enormously resource-rich land for just seven cents an acre, but thats water under the former land bridge, she said

It was Andrew Johnson’s secretary of state. (Same guy.)
Oh, snap! Vlad’s got a huge ego, will probably be a little miffed if he hears this.
He’s got to have more respect for Sarah than for Zero, Biden, or Kerry.
“thats water under the former land bridge, she said”
The Media STILL can’t admit that she had Putin pegged all along, while Obama got it wrong.
They might get kicked out of the gay bar if they dared admit that.
Putin’s manhood just took a whack.
I guess that will show him.
He’ll respect her for it.
She would tear Putin a new a-hole unlike the Kenyan who can’t bow low enough to him.
Ouch! That’ll leave a mark.
Putin probably has more respect for Sarah Palin than he would ever have for Obama..he knows that with Obama, he owns his ass..he can do whatever he wants without consequences because he knows Obama is much more interested in destroying America than he is dealing with Russia
It would be a great state....if the Feds kept their nose out of it...(Like most states).
So many assets.....
I wonder what the Putin Fan Club around here will say?
I agree he’s got to respect her more than zero, et. al. Putin and Sarah both love their countries - as opposed to zero.
However, pretty sure I wouldn’t have retorted to his comment about Alaska the way she did. I think Putin is more dangerous than silly.
Sure. It’s no fun being Machiavellian if nobody stands up to you at all.
I agree, and I expect Sarah does, too. This is a calculated insult on a non-issue. That's what makes it smart.
Both Putin and Palin answer these questions with some wit and humor. I suspect they’d both be happier discussing stuff with each other than with Obama, who possesses neither wit nor humor.
Its a joke son, a joke.
"Palin is a 'Banderite!'" [snort]
“Hell respect her for it.”
We have a winner, folks...
Who's the stupid one now?
Sarah, he can see Wasilla from his house.
Exclusive! A once half term governor from a sparsely populated state says something! Russian President is terrified! This is totally news!
His only out would be to invite her to visit Russia, maybe join in some bare-chested bear riding ;-)
Putin says he can see Alaska from his house.
Or—oh—that was Saturday Night Live that said that.
“he can do whatever he wants without consequences because he knows Obama is much more interested in destroying America than he is dealing with Russia”
The Radical Academic Socialists in the White House don’t understand Putin, and Russia for that matter, because to them, all “core beliefs” are fungible to political expediency.
To people like Sarah, and Putin, they are not.
He’s Russian. If you don’t hit back, you’re irrelevant.
Waiting for the bilerals to explode in 5...4...3...2...1...
“..water under the land bridge...”
I love it!
Well, he was Secretary of State under Lincoln. Palin was right to use Lincoln’s name rather than that of an impeached prez. She could also have called him the Governor of New York.
He obviously hasn’t invaded Alaska yet.
Why do all kids forget their history but remember Seward’s Folly, lol?!
LOL! Lincoln had nothing to do with the Alaska Purchase. THAT WOMAN has no business insulting the great and mighty Putin.
I KNOW THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She knows that, fool. But she’s using his great name to make a point. Some of you guys don’t get the Divine Sarah at all.
You don’t think Putin would like to engage in banter with Sarah???? She’d be a whole lot more challenging than zero....not to mention better looking. And then there is the respect issue....zero gets zero from Putin I’m sure.
I could totally see Russians emigrating to Alaska. They decide to start over in a new land, take tremendous risks to leave their old home... and settle in a place that is just as cold and miserable as the one they left.
Putin wouldn’t even hear of this much less care. He’s still president of his country, she quit as governor for no good reason.
“I wonder what the Putin Fan Club around here will say?”
You’ll probably find a fair amount of overlap in their respective fan bases...
Putin is probably chuckling over the comment. His original comment was in jest and so was Sarah’s retort. It’s the sort of exchange I’d have expected if Reagan were President.
Methinks Gov. Palin has a bit too much class to ride bare-chested.
I'm sure he could bow low enough but he still may need to squat a little.
Alaska was purchased when Johnson was President but Seward was definitely Abe's guy.
Andrew Johnson became president in 1865. The Tenure of Office Act was passed in 1867.
Remember...that teacher was using a book...
Stick it to him Sarah! Stick it!
The land of “Seward’s Folly” has now officially become Putin’s PITA!!!
The beauty of being an American, speaking your mind, and having the American press parrot that thought, to the red ringing ears of one Vladimir Putin, who can do nothing to silence her!
