LOL. The liberals mock her to no end but no matter what they say they certainly can't win. She always comes out ahead.

Palin's 'refudiate' named a Word of the Year Updated at 3:37 PM

Source: USA Today

The staff of the New Oxford American Dictionary has named "refudiate" - former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's mashup of "refute" and "repudiate" - as the 2010 Word of the Year, the Anchorage Daily News reports.

The news organization quotes the staff as saying:

"From a strictly lexical interpretation of the different contexts in which Palin has used 'refudiate,' we have concluded that neither 'refute' nor 'repudiate' seems consistently precise, and that 'refudiate' more or less stands on its own, suggesting a general sense of 'reject.' "

3. Unreal. And EVERY "liberal" or left-leaning web site has at least 2 photos/stories of her


TPM, Huffington -- Every picture is a republican. It's nauseating at times.

I enjoy new made up words. Refudiate made me smile when I first heard it.

It seems the folks at Oxford American Dictionary found it interesting as well.

No big deal when dumbo states he has visited 57 states with one to go. I betcha Palin's IQ is higher than his.

Sometimes that's how words are coined. Warren G. Harding created "normalcy" out of whole cloth, and now it's heard more often than the (correct) "normality".

At least she didn't get it from a teleprompter. Just sayin...
