Palin invents word 'refudiate,' compares herself to Shakespeare

By Matt DeLong
The Twittersphere erupted Sunday when former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin tweeted that "peaceful Muslims" should "refudiate" the mosque being built in New York City near where the Twin Towers once stood. Palin found herself the butt of many tweets, as refudiate, of course, is not a word in the English language.

After deleting the offending tweet, Palin replaced it with another calling on "peaceful New Yorkers" to "refute the Ground Zero mosque plan," which only added to the confusion because it would appear the word she was looking for was "repudiate." Then came the kicker: To quell the vicious Twitter-ribbing she was receiving, Palin unleashed yet another tweet comparing herself to no less than the Bard of Avon.

Naturally, this led to a very entertaining Twitter meme, #ShakesPalin, in which participants revamped classic Shakespeare quotes, Palin-style (and of which Reason's The Cato Institute's Julian Sanchez was arguably the champion).

A good time had by all.

Hey,
Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Habor?

The Webster is a living document. Changes all the time. Maybe this is a new word that just hasn't made it to print in the latest addition! LOL!

Let's play a game. A team of cameramen will follow you around 12 hours a day recording everything.

Everytime you misspeak they will blare it as proof that the man with the racist name is stupid.

Everytime someone on the media's side misspeaks they spike the footage.

How many times will they zing you a day?

I'm not a media whore, so I don't have to be as careful as she does.

How do you "refute" a plan to do something?

"My daughter wanted to go to the movies so I refuted her and made her stay in her room."

I had thought she might make a decent RNC chairman, but I can't say that this inspires any confidence...

I would not go that far.

Remember the 11th commandment,"thou shall not speak ill of another Republican".

She is the darling of the Christian right and will be a fixture of the GOP for some time.

She has made a lot of money. She should take time off, hire some tutors.

So one of ours replaces a "p" with an "f" in the middle of a four syllable word and not only is it worthy of a Washington Post news article, but half of our side jumps on the bandwagon and agrees that she is an idiot.

Meanwhile, Hussien says there are 57 states along with a host of other bloopers any time he goes off teleprompter, and all you hear from the MSM is crickets, or that he's the smartest president since the 19th century.

I really don't see why our side is convinced that we should always eat our own.

Awesome. Another Palin Bashing thread.

So people, exactly what is the end run for these types of threads? What's the point? She isn't running for anything. You certainly don't have to send her any money or vote for her if she does. I guess some people are just happy to divide and anger conservative minded people. I thought that was only in the best interests of progressives and liberals.

What a worthwhile goal.
