Sunday, during a Twitter message, Sarah Palin made up the word “refudiate” and then when asked about the nonexistent word she 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!” tweeted Palin.
A few days ago, Palin also used the word during a Fox News report (see the video below), and has since deleted the tweet where she used the refudiate word.
Palin re-tweeted her statement and said: “peaceful New Yorkers, pls refute the Ground Zero mosque plan if you believe catastrophic pain caused @ Twin Towers site is too raw, too real.”
Palin used the word during a Twitter session and said that she was opposing a mosque near the site of the 9/11 attacks in New York City and begged New Yorkers to oppose it as well. For more on that story, click here.
Monday and Tuesday, the word refudiate is making the rounds as the joke of the day.
Poking fun, Palin tweeted and cited George W. Bush’s word “misunderstimate” and Barack Obama’s “wee-wee’d up.” See the full statement above.

One week ago, Sarah Palin defended the Tea Party against NAACP claims that the organization tolerates racism; Palin took to her Facebook page to make her statement. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) held their annual convention in Kansas City and passed a resolution that asked the Tea Party to get rid of its racist elements. They claim that the Tea Party allows some of their protestors to carry racist signs and by not discouraging it or eliminating it, they are tolerating it. For more on this story, click here.
