*snickers* Love it.
http://voices.washingtonpost.com/44/2010/07/palin-invents-word-compares-he.html
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).

Pretty Bad 2012 numbers for Obama

With his approval numbers hitting new lows it's no surprise that Barack Obama's numbers in our monthly look ahead to the 2012 Presidential race are their worst ever this month. He trails Mitt Romney 46-43, Mike Huckabee 47-45, Newt Gingrich 46-45, and is even tied with Sarah Palin at 46. The only person tested he leads is Jan Brewer, who doesn't have particularly high name recognition on the national level at this point.>>>>

Yup...you read that right. People like all those Republicans more than Obama, and Palin is tied with him.

Well, people may smarten up. Looks like that is happening in Nevada. Reid is now polling in front of Angle.

One can only hope that they do run her. I don't put much stock into polls, too many factors, too easy to manipulate, but that is just my own opinion.


Talk about making things worse. She has no knowledge of history, geography or the English language. It wouldn't be so scary, if

Now don't start hyperventilating, cause we wouldn't want you to have to use your breathalyzer. ;-)


My breathalyzer? Did you mean my inhaler? LOL

Obama was quick to correct his breathalyzer gaffe to inhalator. Took him about a second.

I've always found the eye roll emoticon to be the the paramount of maturity.

Yes, he corrected his gaffe. He still said something ridiculous, we've all done it. We're human. So is Sarah Palin. I'm no fan of her's to be honest, I wouldn't vote for her if she were to run in 2012. That said, so what? She said something ridiculous, she just happened to say it into a mic. Cut her some slack, she's only human.
