Shakespalin: The Bard of Wasilla
For those of you who may have missed it, Sarah Palin tweeted the following a few days ago in response to a community center and mosque planned near Ground Zero:
“Ground Zero Mosque supporters: doesn’t it stab you in the heart, as it does ours throughout the heartland? Peaceful Muslims, pls refudiate.”
twits tweeters called her out for the use of “refudiate,” she responded:
“‘Refudiate,’ ‘misunderestimate,’ ‘wee-wee’d up.’ English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!”

Now is the winner of our discontempt, made glorious fodder by that stunning dork.
