Sarah Palin compares herself to Shakespeare. Is this another example of her "self-defecating humor?" - Today's Christian Videos
Refudiate is not a word - at least, not one that appears in the dictionary. But don\'t try telling former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. She\'s been dropping refudiate bombs all over the place lately, and she\'s not about to give up.
\r\nLast week, Palin went on Sean Hannity\'s Fox News show to claim that it\'s "divisive" for the NAACP to call out racist elements in the Tea Party movement.
\r\nHer I-know-you-are-but-what-am-I argument built to this stirring conclusion: "[The Obamas] could refudiate what it is that this group is saying. They could set the record straight." Liberal bloggers LOL\'d at her word choice, but then she did it again yesterday. In a since-deleted tweet, Palin wrote, "Ground Zero Mosque supporters: doesn\'t it stab you in the heart, as it does ours throughout the heartland? Peaceful Muslims, pls refudiate." After much Twitter mockery, she erased the tweet, re-posting new versions that used actual words like reject and refute instead of the one she made up. Yet she followed this with another tweet defending her imaginary word: "\'Refudiate,\' \'misunderestimate,\' \'wee-wee\'d up.\' English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!"
\r\nTwitter was completely on fire last night with Shakespeare silliness and Palin puns. Comedian Andy Borowitz suggested \'refudiate\' is in the \'fictionary.\' Our own Jon Perr pointed out that this incident is just an example of her "self-defecating humor." And several tweeters went all Lloyd Bentsen: "I\'ve read Will Shakespeare. You, Sarah Palin, are no Will Shakespeare." And those tweeters who got out their \'Complete Works Of\' had a long fun night ahead of them...
