'Refudiate?' You Betchya!

The former Alaska Governor is back in the news again. The Thrilla from Wasilla posted a series of tweets on the subject of a mosque at ground zero.

Her first two posts were removed. She pulled down one of them after concocting the word "refudiate" and then the other after she used the word "refute" incorrectly.

Ground Zero Mosque supporters: doesn't it stab you in the heart, as it does ours throughout the heartland? Peaceful Muslims, pls refudiate via Twitter for BlackBerry®

Peaceful New Yorkers, pls refute the Ground Zero mosque plan if you believe catastrophic pain caused @ Twin Towers site is too raw, too real via Twitter for BlackBerry®
Peace-seeking Muslims, pls understand, Ground Zero mosque is UNNECESSARY provocation; it stabs hearts. Pls reject it in interest of healing via Twitter for BlackBerry®
In an attempt at humor, she finally compared herself to Shakespeare!
'Refudiate,' 'misunderestimate,' 'wee-wee'd up.' English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!'

But really the humorous aspect of this story is that Palin has used her word 'refudiate' before to try to "repudiate" racism in the Tea Party movement..


Andy Borowitz had the best and most humorous quote about Sarah Palin:
"Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today defended her use of the non-word “refudiate,” telling her critics, “Look it up in the fictionary.”
