Palin invents word 'refudiate,' compares herself to Shakespeare

By Matt DeLong

UPDATE 12/27/10 3:02 p.m. ET:

Politico reports that Sarah Palin addressed her now-infamous "refudiate" tweet (see below for the backstory) on Sunday's episode of "Sarah Palin's Alaska." She now says it was a simple typo:

While in the car, Sarah also talked to Todd about the time she tweeted the word "refudiate." "I pressed an F instead of a P and people freaked out," said Sarah, pointing out that her blunder was the second-most-searched word on Google trends. "Make lemonade out of lemons," said Sarah.

At the time, Palin acknowledged in a tweet that she had created a new word, without saying anything about a mistake (the "F" and "P" keys on a QWERTY keyboard are not near each other). Moreover, Palin spoke the word "refudiate" in a Fox News appearance before she used it on Twitter:

(Updated 12/28/10 at 8:06 a.m. ET)

ORIGINAL POST 7/19/10:

The Twittersphere erupted Sunday when former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin tweeted that "peaceful Muslims" should "refudiate" the mosque being built in New York City near where the Twin Towers once stood. Palin found herself the butt of many tweets, as refudiate, of course, is not a word in the English language.

After deleting the offending tweet, Palin replaced it with another calling on "peaceful New Yorkers" to "refute the Ground Zero mosque plan," which only added to the confusion because it would appear the word she was looking for was "repudiate." Then came the kicker: To quell the vicious Twitter-ribbing she was receiving, Palin unleashed yet another tweet comparing herself to no less than the Bard of Avon.

Naturally, this led to a very entertaining Twitter meme, #ShakesPalin, in which participants revamped classic Shakespeare quotes, Palin-style (and of which Reason's The Cato Institute's Julian Sanchez was arguably the champion).

A good time had by all.

As a postscript, Mediaite points out that this is not the first time Palin has used the word "refudiate." (Watch at the 1:05 mark).

May be Sarah Falin is dyslexic and had a TYFO in her tweet (Tyfo in Her Tweet....hmmmm.... there is a special ring to the phrase!)

It wouldn't be the first time someone had their Pees and Efs mixed up! Soupy Sales mixed up his Efs and Kays according to the urban legend when he said "Every time I see Ef, You See Kay!"

Protia...you're rather disingenuous. Palin resigned to protect the people of Alaska against the Democrat Party tsunami of legal actions against her ... they began suing and threatening to sue her for every act she took as governor in an attempt to destroy her politically. The Alaskan Republican machine wasn't about to defend her. She resigned to prevent an assault upon the State's treasury.

hazmat -

you're an apologist tool.

she quit because she wanted to cash in. period.

and while 'repudiate' and 'refute' do have similar meanings, she used neither word and accidentally combined the two. because she is not all that bright.

this was a mistake made by a dumb person, not someone tying to simplify the language with a new word or something...

chopin224 ... obviously most of you don't understand how words are created.

Point of fact is that Repudiate and Refute are synonyms. The fact that no one else seems to ever made the simple mistake doesn't mean that as more and more people begin using Refutiate, it will become acceptable part of the language ... its meaning is clear.

Think of the millions of people over the years who incorrectly for decades used the non-word 'irregardless' when they actually meant 'regardless'. Eventually irregardless found its way into the dictionary.

Many more examples of words being created. After all, the purpose of language is to convey information from one person to others; so that if all concerned comprehend what is meant by a heretofore non-word, then it becomes a word!

Go Sarah ... we need more words....

Whole-heartedly agree. I'm fine with reporting on a wide variety of subjects, but an "update" on a tweet from Palin - seriously?

1) This isn't news - it's gossip.
2) Stop posting about Palin and she'll go away. Realisticly, no newspaper publication wants this to happen - she's just too popular.

Look. If you are a comedian, or a humorist, or yes even a talk show personality, using such linguistic gimmickry can be charming and useful. But, if you are trying to convince the public that you are a serious candidate for high office, at some point you have to talk and act like someone who is a serious person with some degree of intellectual heft. I have yet to see any evidence at all that Palin is anything other than a low level, seedy politician who has been lucky enough at the local and state level to win the top office in a state that has a very small population and that is way out of the mainstream in its culture and education.

This is not an insult to Alaskans but simply a commentary on the level of cultural and educational development of that area in general. It is sort of like that here in Utah. We do have serious government officials who have the necessary credentials and even they have difficulty on a national level. Yo simply have to act like an adult occasionally and Palin has all too often acted in ways that define her as being immature and provincial. Not good qualities that would recommend her for the Presidency.

People make mistakes when speaking, many times without realizing it. In my field, one of the key principles is "non-maleficence" (not harming). On a regular basis, in professional presentations, many physicians say "nonmalfeasance" instead. I don't think they realize they have made a mistake. Sarah Palin's gaffe seems to be the same sort of thing.

I think the public would like her to "man" up and say that she made a mistake instead of the "No big deal; come on it was a typo" attitude she displayed.

I like refudiate better. I agree it should be a new word. Combine refute with repudiate. I hope she responds with all the verbal gaffes made by Obama (or Biden) like she did last time you all jumped on her for a mistake. You all apply a different standard to Palin for some odd reason.

Why is it people are standing up for a person that really is technically challenged? The real "morons" or name callers that need defending are those that are defending Palin.

It is truly mind boggling that people would even entertain the idea of her as a "leader."

She quit her governorship because it was overwhelming and this country doesn't tolerate quitters. Maybe the GOP is finally showing what it is made of.

You dumb goobers keep bringing up the 57 states thing like it proves anything. The only thing it proves is that you're as stupid as Palin. Obama was clearly tired, he was thinking 50 states but wanted to correct it to 48 states, and slipped up. Big deal. Sarah Palin is a certified moron. A nincompoop to the nth degree.

Yes, they did, and when the Obama campaign was asked about it they said he was referring to the number of states AND TERRITORIES. They admitted the mistake. He did not need to make anything up you see, or lie, because good people know even the best of us make mistakes.

But Palin has shown she will go to great lengths to make a small gaffe appear to be nothing of the kind but instead either an attack on her or a glimpse of her genius. Her poor interview with Curic was nothing less than a viscous attack according to her. And this very small twitter mistake has been explained by her as making up new words like Shakespeare, and now a typo.

It is clear to me from Palin's actions that she knows she is uneducated and is very self conscious about it. She has a large ego and thus cannot have anyone laugh at her, instead attacking those who laugh at her honest mistakes. But what is worse, she demands respect when she has not shown she deserves any, unless you can point to one accomplishment she has made in her career(s). A person like this should not be in any public office for the simple reason that they do not know the meaning of the word "serve", among others.

So what are you trying to say? She's a liar? We all know that already. Tell us something we do not know. It would also help to print the word liar when you "reporters" see a lie, instead of other mushy words like "misrepresented" or "misspoke" or "misquoted". Here's your headline:

If the letter ‘F’ on the key board was next to the ‘P’, then I could (not would) understand the typo, as alleged by the Alaska redneck, but it wasn’t. It only shows her low educational and intellectual level.

When I mis-speak, even in comments, I frequently post a correction afterwards if there is any cause for confusion. I also do this when I have made a mistake to correct my errors. Unlike Mrs. Palin, I have the sense to not make up words, or pretend that my bad grammar is anything other than bad.

Kennedy: "Ask not what you country can do for you ...."

King: "I have a dream."

Farragut: "Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead."

I encourage most Americans and more importantly, the media to disregard the mouthings of Sarah Palin. She views herself as an expert on the pulse of this country when she obviously is out of touch with most Americans. She is NOT a very bright individual who is trying to fashion a "voice" for herself. The more the media pays attention to her pratfalls, the more she believes that she's on target with the people. She's NOT. This is a woman who wishes to become President when she could not ably complete a single term of Governor of the great State of Alaska. Just as she claimed she could see Russia from her back porch, I was surprised she did not issue a claim that she could see Cuba from Haiti when she visited the country.

PLEASE ignore her musings and for the sake of the Country, she may just disappear as a so-called political icon. There clearly are more politically astute, INTELLIGENT women in the Republican Party who are able to deliver more than simply "sound bites."

CoreS-man is an acceptable pronunciation of corpsman. I agree adding a "P"sound makes it worse but how much worse than Palin adding a "P" sound to refudiate? And refute or repudiate WHAT? Building a religious community center next to a disaster site they had N-O-T-H-I-N-G whatsoever to do with? That's like protesting the building of a Catholic community center next to Oklahoma City Federal Building just because American Terrorist Timothy McViegh "claims" he was Catholic.

Its one thing to make up a new word without regard for American English lexicon, but totally another thing to mispronounce a word on his teleprompter. He's never been in military, until now as CinC, but the word "corpsman" has TWO correct pronunciations: core-man and cores-man. Maybe he just got confused. Also the LANGUAGE of Austria is German. You can say the "Austrian language" just like you can say the "American language". You do know that we don't have a language. We borrowed it from England.

Sarah Palin's use of the word refudiate instead of the proper word repudiate isn't relevant. What is revelant is the fact that she couldn't find the humility to acknowledge the mistake. She has the arrogance typical of just another celebrity/politician. Can't they ever admit it when they are wrong? Just for once I would like to see a politician/celebrity/pro athlete step up and admit it when they say or do something that is clearly wrong. Contrast this story with the federal employee who admitted a mistake from 24 years ago. She got raked over the coals and was not given any credit at all for taking responsibility for her actions.

On another subject that was brought up in some of the comments: I think the building of a mosque near Ground Zero is irrelevant. Would any one object to a Christian church being built near the Oklahoma City memorial? How about a church built near the site of the Atlanta bombing which was perpetrated by a radical Christian fundamentalist? Wouldn't that be an insult to the victims of that bombing? I hardly think anyone would object to a Christian church being built nearby. The controversy isn't about religious radicals it is about radicals of a particular religion. If radical fundamentalists Christians from a certain sect had bombed the WTC, people would not become vehemently anti-Christian and paint all Christians with the same broad brush. Why then do people equate Muslims from the radical Wahabi sect with other Muslims?

Coining new words is not the same thing as speaking in malapropese.

When a new word evolves, its purpose is to give a name to something that doesn't already have one. A new word says something that we haven't previously had precisely the right expression for.

A malapropism, on the other hand, is a mistaken (and often ignorant -- think Archie Bunker) usage that...well, here's Webster: "the usually unintentionally humorous misuse or distortion of a word or phrase; especially: the use of a word sounding somewhat like the one intended but ludicrously wrong in the context."

As for as female representation what does Sarah Palin, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and Britney Spears have in common, obviously not their copious intellect so what is the public appeal they capitalize on.

Could it be possible that America would elect to fill its highest office from criterion this narrow in substance. Before you answer remember we elected corporate America’s run away profit cheerleader duo, idiot hand puppet Bubba and his ventriloquist Dick Cheney. That move brought us a corporate war and its armament trade show in Iraq, $4.00 a gal. gasoline, and scandals like; Enron, Global Crossing, WorldCom, Tyco, Halliburton, Duke Energy, AIG, Lehman Bros. Goldman Sachs, And Berni Madoff’s hedge fund culminating in a 720 billion dollar secret taxpayer supported corporate bailout that started the largest recession and job loss since the great depression. Or were the Democrats and Obama responsible for this too.

Now I believe the Republican party hopefuls are not stupid enough to support another clown in the form of Sarah Palin but remember while the Republicans are not the sharpest pencils in the box, they do represent personal greed with legislated limited personal liability and that is enticing, especially when corporate America’s quest for more and more profit keeps the voters broke.

"Refudiate" = "Refute" + "repudiate".

Palin's demand that the Mosque supporters "refudiate" their position is idioronic. She and the Producers of Inception need a dictionary.

This isn't even about politics, it's about respecting the English language. While Palin is correct that it is an organic, living thing, to justify her gaff rather than acknowledge her obvious ignorace is to abuse this important, fragile creature.

It's astonishing the way such cafeteria-style conservatives are opposed to anything progressive, while advancing policies that fail to conserve anything that might enable us to sustain our way of life - the environment, the english language, civil rights, our global reputation, etc.

Likewise the movie title, clearly slapped on as an afterthought, was clearly an attempt to fuse Insertion and Deception. Sadly Inception is a real word with a real meaning that was violated throughout the otherwise excellent film.

BTW So just to be clear, we are not at war with the Muslims - they did not kill for Muhammad and they did not get seventy virgins as promised for blowing up the WTC! Boy did they get F###'d OK, let NY build a monument for their cause; they did get lied too - and how! We should also help Iran get Nuclear Technology so they can finish the job they started... I guess, I just don't understand New Yorkers - have fun with that.

So the Muslims were not Muslims only pretending to be Muslims to kill off the people in the WTC - this sounds so stupid and you can still make fun of someone that wants to defend the US from these Muslim wantabes? WTF?

Bush had too many to count.

POINT: These are people who are constantly in the spotlight and are subject to making blunders in public speaking. It is NOT news.

How many of you could go on live television and keep it together without a stutter or a mishap?

We'd all do it. It's not newsworthy. Comical?? Sure. (If done in good fun).

As for her comparing herself to Shakespeare...well...she drew up a far fetched example and I am sure she thought it would be taken lightly in the spirit of "oh well...stuff happens..and I too am capable of mistakes."

Sometimes we just have to sit back and laugh and go on. You don't have to like her politics, or like her...but we can all have a good laugh from time to time, and see the blunder as a blunder without reading a whole bunch into it.

Never mind Palin, never mind mosque-building, or community-center building.

But I do mind this - reading so many Americans' comments about Islam and muslims here. To say that Islam is not a religion shows our ignorance as a people, and that's embarrassing. I am not a Muslim, but I know about Islam. Do you? And if you don't, stop slamming it.

For centuries, Christians have actively sought to spread its beliefs/religion throughout the entire world. More widely so than ANY other religion in the world - but don't take my word for it, go check it out yourself. Sometimes through peaceful means (Asia/China), and many times through extremely violent means (eg. what Spanish did to native North Americans). Talking about pot calling the kettle black.

Here's some pointers:

Islam religion:
1. For muslims, Christ and Moses are part of their religious history. The difference is they don't believe Christ was the son of God, only a prophet, like their own beloved Mohammed. Allah, Jehovah, and the Father of Jesus Christ is one and the same for Jews, Christians, and Muslims. So saying Allah doesn't exist is missing the point.

2. Islam is a cult??? We don't call Christianity a cult, even though it has spawn many many cult groups, causing violence and death. Al-Qaeda is a cult, not Islam.

Do you hear any American Muslims voicing their beliefs proudly or expressing outrage at the loss of their basic rights after 9/11? No, because they are afraid of doing that in the United States of America. Because 9 years after 9/11, there is still so much hate and violent thoughts against Muslims. That's what Al-Qaeda wants, for America to join them and start hating. Because they know hate can be potent, as well as attractive. And with hate on both sides, the wars, the terrorists, the violence, the killing... will last forever. Which is EXACTLY what Al-Qaeda wants.

This is NOT the America that anyone (not just Americans) wants to believe exists. What happened to the quintessential American dream? Can a Muslim achieve the American dream here in America? Many already has. But will it get increasingly difficult when there are increasingly more ignorant Americans out there who think the American dream is only for those who believe in Christ?? And what happens when the American dream is only for a certain group of people? Then, the American dream is no more.

America needs to remain a country where we are known for our powerful military might, as well as for our tolerance and freedom of thought. We need to remember we are not just helpless victims. We are in control of who we are, what we become, and what we live by. If we become so intolerant as a people, then we have joined the ranks of those who fight for Al-Qaeda. THEN, all those who hate what America stands for has won.

When anything could prove that you were communist. We haven't forgotten McCarthyism, have we? I hope not.

America needs to remain a country where we are known not only for our powerful military might, but also for our tolerance and freedom of thought. If we have become a people so intolerant about building anything of any religion ANYWHERE, then Al-Qaeda and all those who hate what America stands for has won.

Forget about dumb @$$ Sarah for a sec and look at what is happening here. Sure, in our country people have the right to practice whatever religion they choose and that should never change. But to build this Mosque only a few blocks from ground zero is disturbing. It should not be allowed to be built here, no if and or but's about it. Dont you lefties see that they are laughing in our face over this. They blow it up and then build a multi million dollar Mosque to spite the USA. Cant anyone else see that our country has been sold out from under us and OBAMA is the broker of the deal. WAKE UP AMERICA BEFORE IT IS TO LATE!!!! They are using our system against us and the left is standing up for it in the name of political correctness. It makes me sick!!!! The utopia the left is leading us to is one in which our nation becomes a bunch of sheep eating what they feed us, doing what they tell us and never having a voice of our own or a platform in which to use it. The middle class will disapear and we will be left with rich and poor people. IF your not rich now, guess where you will fall in? Are you getting it yet? It is not out of the question that i am right is it? look a bit closer at things people. Pay attention and formulate your own opinions. The media is part of this, dont rely on any television network to tell you the truth, newpapers like this one are in on it also. keep this in mind when trying to decide for your self. It is time to wake up before we loose it all!!!! I want my children to have the country that four generations of men in my family sacrificed everything to build and protect.

Obama told a Portland crowd that Iran doesn't pose a serious threat to us saying "tiny countries with small defense busgets can't harm us". Literally, the very next day he said "I've made it clear for years that the threat from Iran is grave".

Pretty girls have been used to sell snake-oil remedies as long as humanity has had sniffles. Sarah Palin has a nice smile and body and a gift for catchy metaphors – organized, reasonable thinking is not the issue here. Ms. Palin makes a good living -old words and new - by championing our fears and making us feel good about our predjudices. If we consent to be ignorant buyers of anybody’s feel-good “I’m OK!” nostrums, then shame on us. If we choose to grow up, inform ourselves about current issues, think for ourselves and act responsibly according to our convictions AND let other people do the same, then – whether you share my opinions or not – thank you very much for upholding the American ideal of government of the people, for the people and by the people.

There's a HUGE difference in allowing Americans to practice freedom of religion and letting Islam walk in and take our country...which is EXACTLY what they'll do if Obama has his way. Most ignorantly think of every religion as just that..a religion...which is tantamount to thinking every political party in the U.S. is the same! Islam wants to run the world.

it was 57, he never thought there were that many states (and you know it), it was a slip of the tongue he never tried to defend or excuse (unlike Palin, who used the word twice, tried to correct herself to 'refute' and then just claimed the right to invent words), and it actually was a reference to the number of jurisdictions that send delegates to nominating conventions of both parties (when you include Guam, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, etc.)

as with corpsman, Obama doesn't pretend he isn't simply mistaken. Just like Bush, who had the good grace and humility to laugh at himself for his linguistic misadventures, for which I give him credit.

the point here is Palin's pathetic attempt to try to make it appear that she didn't actually think that the word was refudiate, not repudiate, which is probably the fact.

BTW, stinking Islam ain't no 'religion'. It's a CULT, concerned only with promoting itself at the expense of all others in this World.

Islam is not deserving of the special status accorded legitimate religions in the USA.

The sooner Islam is dispatched into History, the better. It can be done NUKE FREE by simply BULLDOZING down the so-called 'Holy Places' visited by Haj pilgrimage dupes in Saudi Arabia.

Once completed, there will be no Haj and so, no more Islam. The victims of Islam, the MUSLIMS, will ask themselves, "Why didn't Allah stop lowly bulldozers?".

The answer will be thought before spoken, "There IS no allah. He is fake."

First, thanks for pointing out that this wasn't Palin's first use of her invented word.

What I figure happened is that she was so tickled that she managed to sneak in a long and smart-sounding word in her spot on Fox that she couldn't resist using it again, still utterly clueless that it wasn't a word.

I'll further note that anyone who reads "all of them" should have already been very familiar with the word "repudiate"; those of us who read "all of them" might flub the pronunciation, but you wouldn't repeat that mistake in print if you were familiar with seeing the word on a printed page.

It's pretty obvious that Sarah picked up a new word toy and didn't know how to properly operate it before rolling it out in public.

so Muslims can't build a mosque several blocks away (ground zero isn't two blocks in every direction, by the way, or three, or four) because some criminals happened to invoke Allah? that's absurd.

She's an intellectual lightweight with little or no real political experience. in fact, after criticizing Obama for not having any political experience, the republikans went out and got the only candidate for VP that had LESS experience than Obama.

I refudiate any mention of Palin as if she were worthy of public attention. She is not news, she is an exhibitionist. But the media and Palin need each other because if they had to go it alone, the media would have to go out there and discover some facts and tell us about them, and Palin would have to make sense and so earn our attention. Neither will happen in our lifetimes so what we get is entertainment (FOX News, the talk show clones, CNN, MSNBC, Couric, etc) instead of news, you know, the thing Walter Cronkite and Huntley and Brinkley and those guys used to do, and which PBS and NPR are still doing. So you can make fun of Palin or make fun of the people who are making fun of her but you both are getting what you deserve: a circus where a Republic needs information. And if you want to do some Shakespeare, these are the lines you are looking for: US politics "is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." God help us, God help us all, for surely we cannot help ourselves.

One of the neat things about English is that it has evolved over time and has no governing body. Unlike France, which has some sort of commission to rule on what's proper French and what's not, the English language simply evolves. People make up new words every day.

Let me help you out MarkM2. Middle class people who support a political party that only represents the richest 2% at the expense of the middle class are stupid. Anyone in the middle class who thinks that the interests of the CEOs are the same as the middle class is an IDIOT! Your beloved "trickle down economics" may have increased economic growth but wages have been frozen since the 1970's and people are working longer hours for less money and less benefits than any other industrialized country. As for the Dems taking over Congress in 2006, yeah, you're right. But you fail to realize that the reason they took over is because the GOP had already driven this country off a cliff. Most Americans were already hurting by then. Of course it would take another couple of years for the more affluent to feel it but the rest of us knew it was coming. And just what policies did the Dems help to pass that you think destroyed the economy? The education benefits for veterans? Improved health care for children? Because that's about all they were able to get passed before '08. Which of those 2 programs do you think crashed the economy? And what kind of idiot would continue to think that a media that is owned by the ultra-rich and paid for by multi-national corporate advertising is "socialist"? Not only are Republicans "not perfect" they aren't even remotely decent. They are ignorant and vile and they have run this country into the ground. You know those good old days when the average father could buy a house and put his kids through college while the mother stayed home and took care of the family? That was when liberals ran this country. Conservatives have turned the USA into a cesspool over the last 35 years. Only a friggin' idiot would think that the same conservative economic policies that created this wreck and ruin would somehow suddenly fix the problems. And if the GOP wins another election before the Dems finish cleaning up the damage Bush and the GOP have already done the whole country is going to look like Flint MI.

The Founding Fathers designed the U.S. Constitution so that Our Country would welcome adherents to every faith. The government would not interfere in church affairs. (Churches don't pay taxes.) The church would not interfere in government affairs. (Except when they do.) In September, 2001, some angry members of the Islam faith plowed passenger jet aircraft into several office buildings. The take home lesson? Well, in Sarah Palin's America, that means Christians are at war with Muslims. Following that logic, a mosque (the place where Muslims go to pray) presents a clear and present danger to Our Country as it provides aid and comfort to the enemy -- and only a block or two from Ground Zero! If 19 terrorists, all of them Muslims, undertook to attack America then every Muslim on Earth is a party to the attack. Non sequitur. I get that some people view the mosque at the proposed location may prove hurtful to the families of some of the victims. I don't get the party that values property rights, above most other rights, denying the owners of the property the right to build whatever they want.

Sarah Palin is truly the first post modern political figure. What neither the right, who adore her, or the left, who hate her, realize is that coverage of Palin in the msinstream media is now driven entirely by the desire for media to get as many click throughs on their web sites as possible. Click throughs equal revenue from advertisers. If publications got the same response to putting the word "Seabiscuit" on their home pages, Seabiscuit would be splattered all over the Web. It's not about building Palin up or tearing her down--it's about money. Something she should heartily approve of, given that she now can get $75 K a pop for a fundraising speech at California school when, two years ago, she couldn't have gotten seventy five cents to share her opinion.

Radical Islamists did attack the USA and they are still attacking the USA. If you are not Islam, you ARE an infidel. And, I might add, if you do not know that, you are also an imbecile. Islam teaches openly that all people need to be either converted to Islam or eradicated. Building their mosque near ground zero is just another attack.

Palin has very real psychological problems of which delusions of grandeur are only a part. Eventually, even the 76% of the Republicans who look at her favorably will gradually leave her alone. Can one imagine the popularity that she has with Republicans? Such a sad state of Republican politics.

==================================

9/11 reflects no faith that anyone is aware of. It was the attempt by a small group to hijack a religion for their own perverse use, and judging by comments such as yours, they succeeded quite well. If we were to deny a mosque at Ground Zero, then we must tear down any church that was built over the grounds where Crusaders slaughtered many innocents.

Those like you who are rabidly against a mosque are against mosques in general, anywhere on the planet. They hate the religion, and want to erase any mention of it anywhere.

Also, you can take your "adult supervision" and shove it. Keep your nose out of the business of New Yorkers. You wouldn't want outsiders coming into your state and telling you how to run your life. Let New Yorkers run their own.

I disagree.

I don't think the issue is that she is incapable of using proper english. The fact that she said refudiate when she meant repudiate is exactly what I expect from a poorly educated woman with about average intelligence. Not exactly what I want in a president, but not a huge problem either.
What IS a HUGE problem is the inability to admit mistakes or shortcomings which is dangerous in a powerful political leader. It is the inability to admit mistakes and IMPROVE which she seems to share with Dubya. Comparing herself to Shakespeare??? Now I am not a huge Shakespeare fan and often poke fun at people who are about the fact that he made up words...but he made up words, like murder, that didn't exist as a single word (i.e., murder = to kill intentionally and with premeditation). Not the same as making up words that are mispronounciations of existing words that she just doesn't know.
If she just said one of her trademark responses that she may not always speak the way the liberal elites think she should then I wouldn't care or maybe would think somewhat better of her. I don't CARE that she doesn't know the difference between repudiate and refudiate.
I DO care that she doesn't know the difference between right and wrong.

Of course there will be product placement on Bristol & Levi's reality show. I think the name of the show should be Leveo & Bristolet as an homage to Shakespeare. I can see Todd shilling Fictionary on paid programming early in the morning on Comedy Central.

It's obvious $arah is a one woman show. Apparently there are no handlers to spell check or grammar check anything she writes. Even Piper could help $arah with this & prevent these atrocious gaffes. $arah's impulsivity is downright scary. If, God forbid, $arah did make it to the WH the red phone would have to be deeply hidden. It could be replaced with a green phone $arah could use to bring money in. That would be one smokin' phone!

Folks who don't have a clue what socialism is, and don't know what Obama's platform is either. great combination. See Dionne's column. Health reform, for example, was based on Nixon's proposal, by way of the conservative Heritage Foundation, MINUS the public option Nixon had in it. that's socialist? Obama is fairly pro-business, and the only regulation he's proposed is in response to clear wall street abuses that existing regulations don't cover given the new products Wall Street invented. that's hardly radical either.

The baillouts of the auto industry are lots of things, but bailling out private industry, mandating the purchase of private health insurance, etc., are the opposite of socialism, and aren't far off dead center politically.

refudiate. verb. to refuse to acknowledge , ratify, or recognize as valid after having been proven to be false or erroneous

don't think so. once you have actually refuted something, repudiating it is kind of redundant at best. and overthrowing by proof is in some respects the very opposite of simply refusing to even acknowledge it. in the latter, you are distancing yourself from a proposition, in the former, you are engaging it head on.

"Then there is "trickle down economics did not work"...except for the longest period of sustained economic growth in the history of the US. Oh yes, then there is "8 years of Bush led to the current recession"...except that the Dumbocrats took over Congress in 2006, and when the GOP had both the White House and the Congress unemployment was only 4.3%, the DOW stood at 14000, and inflation was near "0". Since the dumbocrats took power in 2006 (not 2008) the wheels have come off the economy. The list goes on and on. For the GOP, the actual problem has been manipuation of the news by the state-controlled media and the GOP's inability to get actual facts over the airwaves."
_________________________________________

I have to admit, that's one of the most cluelessly humorous things I've read this week.

Let's see, 'sustained economic growth' with two Reagan recessions, one Bush the elder recession, two Bush the younger recessions and one Bush the younger economic collapse which was prevented from becoming worse than the Great Depression only by a half-hearted effort to apply Keynesian economic theory. Then there is the fact that the middle class has lost 25% of its earning power since 1980 as a systemic result of voodoo economics trickle-down tax policy (and that was BEFORE the economic implosion of 2008).

BTW, the Democrats did nothing to cause the economy to collapse between 2006 and 2008. The process leading to the collapse was in place by 2002 and the Wall Street implosion actually began in 2006, when the CDO and CDS scam went into overdrive. Voodoo economics, intensely ignorant tax policy, and the war against government regulation were the direct causes of the collapse and anyone who has been paying attention with a functioning brain understands that.

As for the poor radical right-wing nuts being unable to control the mythical 'state run media', the Murdoch Global Propaganda Ministry has done a very good job of spewing the idiocy of the clueless radical right, and the rest of the media is owned and operated by wealthy corporate interests who swerve to the right at every opportunity. Because they aren't necessarily right-wing lunatics in every case is not a rational reason to claim that most of the media is in ANY way 'leftist'.

The foundation that wants to build this mosque exists to promote peace and tolerance by the Islam religion. We are spending a lot of money overseas to accomplish the same thing.

Given that the "insider threat" is considered to be the nation's greatest threat I would be happy to have them spend their own money to accomplish these goals by educating their children/worshippers and through international outreach.

If you go by Palin's line of thought or lack of it then you would determine that all Muslims are bad.

Everyone occasionally makes a mistake but this is further proof of Sarah Palin's ignorance and lack of education. Unfortunately no matter how many stupid things she says her supporters will just dig in their heels deeper. The republicans stopped valuing intelligence a long time ago. To be a Republican politician all that is required is to declare Jesus as your saviour, know how to shoot a gun, and prove you are a regular guy by drinking beer and eating pork rinds.

My esteem of the Washington Post just dropped. Rather than engaging the issue of whether a mega-mosque should be allowed on site at Ground Zero, which has compelling supporting and oppositional arguments, it prefers instead to focus on Ms. Palin's unfortunately misspelled Tweet.

It's ugly to see a man (that's you, Matt) writing for a supposedly open-minded newspaper reduce its writing to tasteless, chintzy insults that draw upon 1950s-era biases that reduces women (albeit only ones that conveniently disagree with you) to brainless sexual objects.

Nancy Pelosi?

America really took a liking to her and her style, didn't they. Bye Bye!

Palin's only peer is Hillary, who Obama is trying to keep under control so he won't have to run against her in 2012, and most likely lose the Dem nomination to her.

The Left obsessively hates Palin because she is a political natural and has tremendous charisma, unlike Hillary.

Palin flips it right back on them, becoming even more popular.

The Left has had their knives out for Palin since she made her first major speech two years ago.

The hatred they have for her, their obsession, is a measure of their fear of her ability.

As the Left's day fades, her's rises.

80% of the country - including the Independents now - are rejecting the medicine the 20% Left tried to force feed us.

Obviously, Republicans are not perfect and never will be...but at least they are self-sufficient , patriotic, hard working adults. That is more than can be said for the sub-human sheep who populate the left.

Such a silly post sircut. So based on your post Nazi = Muslim? I know what you're trying to do and if you had time to apply any critical thinking you would have used Nazi = Al Qaeda for your comaprison but then you would have had no point since you couldn't smear Muslims.

Nazis were for the extermination of Jews. I'm sure a most of those in the Nazi Party were Christians just like most terrorists in Al Qaeda are Muslims. We don't smear Christianity because a group of killers (Nazis) hijacked the religion so why are you attempting to do the same thing to another religion?

The liberal left-wing Democrats in power want to surrender to the Islam terrorist enemy attackers of the Muslim world who worship their God Allah in a Mosque. Do you mean to build a religious structure on Ground Zero site of the 9/11 Islamic al-Qaeda terrorist attack on the U.S.A.?

A Mosque approved by Obama for the NY site would exceed an impeachable insult to the American people as would FDR putting Nazi symbols head stones of U.S. soldiers at the National Cemetery killed by Nazi soldiers in World War II.

What's with the pathetic defenses of the right-wingers, that anyone who disagrees with them is a "hater," in this case a "Palin hater"? As if they could climb inside others' heads and hearts and experience their feelings.

Aren't we taught, by the religion that most right-wingers embrace, to love our enemies and our neighbors as ourselves? That means we love Sarah Palin and even terrorists. (Not too sure about the "turn the other cheek" part, but hey, it's their religion.)

It doesn't mean we don't alert the unawakened to, or put up with, these menaces to society. Put 'em in a bin and snuff 'em out before they do any more damage!

That's much different than "hating." Get it? (Probably not.)

The actual "hatred," if any, is by those who, despite claiming to be commanded to love their enemies, despise those who are putting the unawakened on the alert.

Go ahead. Try to prove me wrong.

drjcarlucci - another wing nut making it up... Sarah Palin is not even close to being the most powerful woman in American politics. Oh, you forgot Secretary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, a host of actually-serving female governors, senators and representatives? Poor wing nuts, can't get a fact straight. Now, if you want to call Palin the number one female hate and fear mongerer in the country, you're onto something. Although Michelle Bachmann gives her a run for that title.

As to Palin's being popular... I believe she's not even the right wing's 1st, 2nd or even 3rd choice at the moment to run for prez. Wrong facts again. But you can keep wishing, Carlucci.

Finally, you may think you saw the handwriting on the wall, but what you saw was disappearing ink... Harry Reid's new found ascendancy over Sharon Angle in Nevada is the portent of much more bitter rice the radical right will be eating this fall. The party in power always loses some seats... but the "national polls" don't mean bupkus in Senate and House races. Those are won or lost one by one. And, you might take a quick look... Dems in Congress are trusted by 33% of the country while the rightie Republicans are trusted by only 26%. When you wish upon a star... la-dee-lah

It is beyond my comprehension to understand what some Americas hear from her speeches. And the Post always has her sayings or picture located somewhere near the President photo.

2012 is looking better for Obama every day. Palin has a very a strong shot at winning the GOP nomination. All she has to do is wave the flag and thump the Bible (like GW Bush) and the GOP base will support her. Intelligence is not a factor (in fact, they seem to have a disdain for any kind of intellectualism). Romney, being a Mormon, has little chance with intolerant, right wing Christians.

The more frightening part of this story is that despite there being absolutely no connection between the terrorists and the people seeking to build this mosque, Sarah Palin would have these Muslims be scapegoats and apologists for terror. They did not blow up the WTC, they did not condone it, they were as horrified and shocked as every other American (and they are Americans, make no mistake). The fact that they want to build a mosque so close to the site should be celebrated, not "refutiated". These Muslims are stating unequivocally that they are NOT involved in the terrorist acts, that they want to help the revitilization of the city, and that despite the horrendous prejudice that they continue to suffer at the hands of people like Sarah Palin, they want to stand straight and tall and proclaim their beliefs, as any American is encouraged to do. Good for them, and shame on Sarah Palin for even suggesting that there is something wrong with that.

I feel, and I am a Roman Catholic, that the mosque is actually a gesture of reconciliation and redemption. That so many Americans are using the politics of divisiveness to try to shout down this community-oriented building says that those people need to look more deeply into their (generally and supposedly) Christian consciences.

Besides, we have a process for deciding such things in New York; let the vox populi speak through its elected representatives and not through a mob - most of which it seems have no understanding of New York's overall culture and diversity.

-- Here's one from a few weeks ago: Obama said Medvedev went to "visit the headquarter of Twitters."
Question to the lefties: What's a Twitters?
-- Here's another: Obama -- "I've now been in 57 states. I think one left to go."


Also, how "intolerant" Palin and those who reject the idea of a mosque being built there are? I'm sure if it was a Christian church or synagogue being planned for the site the freaks on the left including the WaPo would be screaming about that. American leftists are destroying the country piece by piece. When their mission is accomplished we'll know exactly who to blame.

// Sorry, but there is no comparison. Pronunciation is often regional. Even a mispronunciation indicates that the speaker knows the word but hasn't heard it spoken. Making up a word, or worse, thinking that a collection of syllables is a word is not a typo. It is ignorance compounded by the stupidity of not checking it in advance before committing it to writing. Sarah was using nonsense in its true form. And nonsense points to addled thinking.

There is a simple acid test that can be applied concerning the building of a mosque near, but not at, Ground Zero. Ask yourself if a Catholic or Protestant Church, a Hindu Temple, a Jewish Temple, a Buddhist Temple, or an Atheist Temple To Rational Thought should be built upon the same spot. If you said "Yes,that would be all right" then you're biased against Muslims.

The Muslim population of New York City is roughly 750,000, a little less than 10% of the overall count in the city. We all know that 99.99% of those people are normal, work-a-day, loyal Americans.

When Tim McVeigh blew apart OK City, no one argued that all Christians should be held responsible. We know that would be ridiculous. We also know rationally that all Muslims should not be held responsible for the acts of a handful of psychopaths.

I feel, and I am a Roman Catholic, that the mosque is actually a gesture of reconciliation and redemption. That so many Americans are using the politics of divisiveness to try to shout down this community-oriented building says that those people need to look more deeply into their (generally and supposedly) Christian consciences.

Besides, we have a process for deciding such things in New York; let the vox populi speak through its elected representatives and not through a mob - most of which it seems have no understanding of New York's overall culture and diversity.

And, although I don't think she's the brightest light on the Christmas tree, I think she's smart enough to know she would never be elected. What she DOES want is celebrity-level fame. She's doing everything possible to build a "fan" base so she can get her own TV talk show. All of her mindless speeches, public appearances, Facebook postings, and Tweets are calculated efforts to keep her name in the spotlight to use as leverage when she approached TV execs about her own program. If that doesn't work she'll have to really learn how to field-dress a Caribou...and I'm betting with her little taste of fame, she doesn't want to do that!

Ok, Sarah Palin makes spelling mistake while messaging, speaks in colloquial language and others have never done so probably. But some how she always makes sense, gets to the point without going round and round putting arguments and gets all the intelligent ones to agree to her. She utters two words and Health bill is modified. When she asks the President to meet BP CEO, he complies and gets a 20 billion fund. She defends Israel when everybody was critical and State Department comes out and takes the same stand as her. Even in the current case, irrespective of the word used, most agree that insisting on a Mosque at the very site is insensitive. Is not the purpose of language or speech to communicate?

There are less controversial places to build the mosque. If there is a mosque to be built at ground zero it should be led by an Imam reading from a cleansed Koran.

Didn't the Muslims build a mosque on top of the holiest site in Judaism, the site of the 2nd Temple? In retrospect, that was a conflict-producing move. There is a mosque in India built on top of the site of a Hindu temple. That has also caused conflict, riots, etc. This proposal should be taken in these historical contexts.

Actually this is not just about Sarah Palin as much as it is about the acceptance of rampant illiteracy, which has been in serious decline for many years now. The fact that people of influence get away with this on a daily basis is a chilling indication that many forms of ignorance (such as the ability to speak and comprehend functional English, but choosing not to) are taking hold and being taken for granted in our culture. Those who express themselves better, and emphasize the importance of more intelligent communication, are considered "elitists", and overall intelligence and innovation is looked upon with suspicion, almost as a threat. The common folk love Sarah because, face it, she is common like them, and the idea of having someone like that in a position of leadership is empowering to them. Unfortunately, that does not take into account how someone like that would make us look to the rest of the world.

In response to those individuals who enjoy saying stuff like "You liberals really feel threatened by Our Sarah", the biggest threat is the possibility of being perceived as a nation that chooses to be represented by someone who condescends to the masses of very limited consciousness, who mistrust outsiders, don't want change, and generally resent anything outside of their understanding of things in life. The potential of having lame leadership like that is indeed a threat.

Sarah Palin is an uneducated person trying to pose an intellectual and dumbing down all of the people she comes across. She is not a bad person, but she is not an intellectual nor is she particularly astute or cunning. Why would anyone want her to be president is beyond me. Why do you want follow someone who is not going to be an effective leader. I am a Republican and I am not neither left nor right. Probably moderate would best describe my position. It is unfair to attack Sarah Palin's character. As I stated earlier, she is not a bad person, just not as witted as required to be a successful politician. It is a shame as I think her heart is in the right place, just not her brain. We all should require more of our politicians. Not just a good story, but genuine leadership capabilities and wherewithal. Our country is in this shape it is in because we do not demand more of our so-called leaders. We always seem to acquiesce to each administration and then to the vote out the ruling party mentallity when we feel it affects us personally instead of nationally. We are all in for our personal agendas and not the greater good of our nation. Politicians have become self-serving and we have become fearful, intimidated people. Very few have the courage or fortitude to do the heavy lifting required to re-establish our nation. Skeptics and cynics is what we have become. If we do not dig ourselves out of this rut soon, we all will be speaking of the USA as a great nation in past terms.

It's also unclear to me that repudiate is the correct word to use. One can repudiate a contract, someone's false claim or objectionable statements, or the actions (e.g. violence, protests) of some group of people. I haven't heard repudiate being used in the context of repudiating a physical object or the construction of one. Perhaps Palin was constrained by Twitter's 140 character limit, but it still raises questions about her English proficiency.

Besides that, this is a free country with exceptional protections for free speech and religious freedom. Unless the Muslim group asking to build a mosque near the Twin Towers site has definite and provable connections to violent groups, their request should be granted. In fact, the Manhattan Community Board noted the opposite, that the mosque was a gesture of peace: http://www.thejakartaglobe.com/world/new-york-votes-for-mosque-near-twin-towers-site/377309

Palin actually thought it was a word, using it twice, and not even claiming it was a slip. She should have just laughed and said her brain was somewhere between refute and repudiate and that's what came out. Anyone with a brain and without a chip on her shoulder wouldn't have tried to defend it at all.

Shakespeare made sense when he coined words. Refudiate makes no sense at all, because refute and repudiate don't really mean anything intelligible when forced together.

And to think this woman would’ve been the face of America: The face of our foreign policy, the face of our education system, the face of our intelligence…etc. I am sooooo happy that we pulled the trap-door on Palin. "refudiate"...what a nut!

Liberals are huge hypocrites.
If it was a Christian church, they'd all be up in arms, but the church for those responsible for murdering 3000 innocent American citizens is defended by them.

Where is all this insanity coming from?
Is it the drugs or are liberals really as mean, ant-American, barbaric and sadistic as the muslim extremists themselves?

Republican Sarah Palin Crows About a Muslim Temple-Mosque being Erected in New York's Ground Zero, My Response is [1.Freedom Of Religion] [2.Having A Mosque There would in Fact Make the Area Safer] [3. Nikki Haley was Once a Practicing Sikh] [4.Bobby PiYush Jindal,was a Practicing Hindu],

My Point is, I'm Tired of Religion being Placed in American Politics, Period. I'm Tired of the Republican Party Using Religion In Election Years For Political Gain.
_____________________

Nikki Haley:Former [Sikh]

PiYush [Bobby] Jindal: Former Hindu

My Thoughts...

Freedom Of Religion: To Each Woman & Man Her Or His Own. Its Their Choice, Not Yours Nor Mine, To Each Woman Or Man, Her or His Own.


Haley:A-Practicing [Sikh] Which is Combination Of [Islam+Hinduism] until Haley Converted to Christianity.

Would Sarah Palin Ban a Sikh Temple being Built in New York City Near Ground Zero?

Bobby [PiYush] Jindal:A Practicing [Hindu] Til Age 18, Like Most Hindus are Vegetarian, Jindal to this Day, Does Not Eat Meat.

Would Sarah Palin Call for a Ban On a [Hindu Temple] being Built In New York City, Near Ground Zero ?

Keep In Mind Both Haley and Jindal are Both East Indian Americans and Republican, So Maybe Palin Would Choose the 5Th in their Cases ?

Sikhism: Find here Sikhism combines the best of both Hinduism and Islam. Many of its concepts and practices. [Fact]


Beginning in the early 11th century, the Muslim incursions into India, particularly in the northwestern area called the Punjab, introduced into the Hindu world there the concept of one God.

This was not an abstract Godhead with many personal manifestations, as already existed in the Hindu worldview, but a single deity with a single name. In time this would develop into a new religion that came to be known as Sikhism.

Today there are 20 million Sikhs in the world, most of them living in India, but with several million in the U.S. and Canada.

Hinduism: Several principles that share a commonality among the various sects. Virtually all Hindus believe in:

* The Caste System.

* Karma. The law that good begets good, and bad begets bad. Every action, thought, or decision one makes has consequences – good or bad – that will return to each person in the present life, or in one yet to come.

* Reincarnation. Also known as “transmigration of souls,” or “samsara.” This is a journey on the “circle of life,” where each person experiences as series of physical births, deaths, and rebirths.

With good karma, a person can b

"They bomb us, then they build their own mosque right there?"

Really? So all Muslims throughout the world should be blamed for the actions of less than 20 fanatics? And we should forget that in the USA, people are supposed to have the freedom to worship?

Tim McVeigh was a Catholic. I guess we should tear down all the Catholic churches in Oklahoma.

How soon, Sarah (and Glen Beck and Hannity and OReilly), will you get around to demanding Muslims wear a yellow crescent on their clothes....and you know where that leads....

Americans cannot allow a mosque to be built
by the WTC. Don't even think about it. The fact that they're even considering it, is an insult, it is a huge
"up yours" to America.
They bomb us, then they build their own mosque right there?
New Yorkers, you have every right to stand up against this, and please stop this atrocity from happening.

"Yaaaawwwnnnnn, suppose you gotta find something to make fun of. Let's see, was that 57 states according to B.O.?"

****************************************

YAAWWWWNNNNNNN, at least Obama is well aware that New Hampshire is the NORTHEAST.....

Sarah Palin drew some boos and shouts of confusion today, when while speaking in New Hampshire she mistakenly claimed that the Granite State was part of the "great Northwest."

"I like being here," she told the crowd in Laconia, "because it seems like here and in our last rally too -- other parts around this great Northwest -- here in New Hampshire you just get it."
