A made-up English word: a combination of two legitimate words; "refute
" and "repudiate
". This is similar to George W. Bush's use of the word "misunderestimate
" several years prior.
Used by Sarah Palin multiple times in print and conversation, she claims her use of "refudiate" is simply her "contributing to the living language" and justifying her ignorance by saying that "Shakespeare liked to coin new words too".
Despite the best efforts of the GOP and Tea Party spin doctors, its clear to everyone who wasn't home-schooled that she's a fucking idiot.
She (Palin) asked Michelle Obama to “refudiate” claims that the Tea Party movement is racist.
