Sarah Palin Defends ‘Refudiate’, Compares Herself to Shakespeare for Making Up New Words


After being called out for using the non-word "refudiate," Sarah Palin is now comparing herself to Shakespeare, scolding us and saying we should all celebrate the expansion of the English language.

Over the weekend she dropped "refudiate" in this gem over Twitter. It's a term she has used once before, Gawker notes.


In apparent embarrassment, the Tweet was deleted. But Palin can't help but try to turn one of her numbskull moves into an "aww shucks" gift to America:

"Refudiate," "misunderestimate," "wee-wee'd up." English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!
