Sarah Palin: A Modern Day Shakespeare?
1 of 9
On Sunday, Sarah Palin made a vocab gaffe via Twitter: "Peaceful New Yorkers, pls refudiate the Ground Zero mosque plan if you believe catastrophic pain caused @ Twin Towers site is too raw, too real." [Emphasis added] She later re-posted the Tweet, swapping "refudiate" for "refute." In yet another post, Palin defended her use of language, tweeting about Shakespeare's penchant for coining new words (which she compared to her own).
