Refudiate:Sarah Palin entered the battle over plans to build an Islamic community center and mosque two blocks from Ground Zero in a series of tweets on Sunday calling for “peaceful” New Yorkers and “peace loving” Muslims to oppose the plans.
But it was the use of the former governor of Alaska for “not a word) refudiate” (hint: it is to draw attention today. Palin used in an initial tweet asking Muslims to “pls refudiate” the construction of the mosque.
The tweet was deleted and re-tweeted Palin two comments using words found in the dictionary, a “refusal” and refute “.”
Palin then used his Twitter feed to align with former President George W. Bush, President Barack Obama and, yes, William Shakespeare.
“‘Refudiate“, “misunderestimate”, “wee-wee’d up.” English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words well. I have to celebrate! ”
“Misunderestimate” was a non-word coined by the famous Bush, who used the term several times, while Obama uses “wee-wee’d up” in August. White House spokesman, Robert Gibbs, later described him thus: “I think ‘wee-wee’d up” is when people get nervous for no particular reason, “he said.
The tweet was not the first time that Palin has used the term. She also used it recently in an appearance on “The Fox Sean Hannity Show.” And considering his defense of refudiate-probably not the last.
