i want to refudiate something

Refudiate: Sarah Palin's new political language

By Alexandra Petri
Refudiate: (verb) a word Sarah Palin just coined on Twitter.
Meaning: something "peaceful muslims" should "pls" do.
Use in a sentence: "Ground Zero Mosque supporters: doesn’t it stab you in the heart, as it does ours throughout the heartland? Peaceful Muslims, pls refudiate."
Country of Origin: Unclear, but you can see Russia.
Explanation: "'Refudiate,' 'misunderestimate,' 'wee-wee'd up.' English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!"
Note: As someone who has never, personally, been "wee-wee’d" up but thinks it sounds like a painful process that would be difficult to reverse, I’m overwhelmed by Palin's boldness. Churchill said of Ramsay MacDonald that "He has, more than any other man, the gift of compressing the largest amount of words into the smallest amount of thought." But why even bother with the words? Sarah Palin has broken down the last boundary, and now the sky is her limit. Soon, her speeches will just be things like: "For too long, Americans have wandered in a gormless wabe, mimsy and absturpated. Can’t the U.S. government corribulate this reticulousity?" Well, can we? I'm not sure...............

and from the daily irritant how can one person be this dumb?

“But to suffer the slings and arrows of outraged liberals, or shall I quit half term, and by refudiating, rake in the fees of fools.”
