When Twitter users decided that Sarah Palin was not, as she implied, the equivalent to a modern-day Shakespeare, they dutifully gave this term to describe what she probably didn't intend to describe.

Being when you make a mistake, use a word that doesn't exist, then try to claim that English is a "living language" where making up words is all good. It's not, really. We already have lots of really good words. Refudiate isn't one of them.
"I think y'all misunderestimated my refudiation," would be Shakespalin to the max.

The art of butchering the English language while at the same time comparing yourself to the Bard.

Coined when Sarah Palin defended her repeated use of the word "refutiated" by Twittering that English was a living language and that even Shakespere made up words!
What the heck kind of word is that? That's very Shakespalin of you!
