Palinese: Refudiate This!

To keep herself busy on the campaign trail, the leading GOP presidential candidate ought to try rewriting Finnegans Wake.  It shouldn’t take her long.  She’s already channeling Shakespeare:

The word “refute” was one of the most misused in the English language even before Sarah Palin came along.

Now the possible next president of the US has taken incorrect use of the verb to a new level by mangling it into a whole new word — “refudiate”.

At first she appeared embarrassed by the linguistic slip, but she later chose to celebrate her inventiveness by comparing herself to literary giants William Shakespeare and, er, George Bush.

The mind reels at the potential intellectual candlepower of the next Republican Era:  President Sarah Palin.  Speaker of the House John Boehner.  Minister of Propaganda Glenn Beck.

We are not worthy!
