When Sarah Palin decides regular English words aren't good enough, she'll just go ahead and make a new one. Here, Refudiate bridges the gap between "refuse" and "repudiate", to mean exactly what she wants it to mean.
"The President and his wife ... they can refudiate what this group (the NAACP) is saying." - Sarah Palin, on F-F-Fox News

May 15 Word of the Day
A few weeks ago, no one had “cheugy” in their vocabulary . Now everything is saturated with the word. It’s in our heads. It’s in our homes. Everyone is asking: “Am I cheugy? Am I a basic ass bitch? Am I GUILTY of being cheugy?”

The proliferation of cheugy in the mainstream discourse can only be attributed to one source: mental terror. It’s an orchestrated psychological trap to make you question your tastes and interests in the eyes of others.

You are not a cheug. YOU’RE PERFECT!!!!

It is very suspicious that the cheugy mascot is a Minion, a literal cyclops, a deformed
yellow panopticon in overalls ... do not let the all-seeing eye to control you. Be vigilant. Resist cheugy psyops.
Becca is another victim of cheugy psyops. I saw the garbage truck take all her Ugg boots yesterday. She even removed “I LOVE The Office!” from all her dating profiles. She’s unrecognizable.

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.

v. to reject with denial

A portmanteau of repudiate and refuse, famously coined by conservative commentator, Vice Presidential candidate, and drop-out Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

An earlier instance of the word is found in the June 25, 2010 New York Times article, "When Capitalism Meets Cannabis". Here, journalist David Segal, quoted a legal marijuana seller. The quote demonstrated a common expressive dysfunction among these people, who would neologize in a chronic marijuana haze.

Sarah Palin's innate cognitive disabilities allowed her to independently coin the term on the July 14, 2010 Fox News show, Hannity.

Sarah Palin used the neologism again in a post to her Twitter account on July 18, 2010. After she was educated by her audience, she deleted the offending post and attempted a correction with two more posts containing the words, "refute" and "reject". As way of explanation, she compared herself, as a wordsmith, to Shakespeare and asked readers to celebrate her mistakes.
July 18, 2010: Ground Zero mosque supporters, doesn’t it stab you in the heart as it does ours throughout the heartland? Peaceful Muslims, (please) refudiate.

July 14, 2010: (The Obamas) could refudiate what it is that (the NAACP) is saying. They could set the record straight.

June 25, 2010: ...interviewing pot sellers is unlike interviewing anyone else... Simple yes-or-no questions yield 10-minute soliloquies. Words are coined on the spot, like “refudiate,” and regular words are used in ways that make sense only in context.

1. A malapropism comprised by combining the words refute (to prove wrong) and repudiate (to abandon)

2. To prove something is wrong by the act of abandoning it, rather than by any actual proof

Synonyms: overthrow, abandon, disregard, disparage, denigrate

Note: This word has been mistakenly defined as a combination of refuse and repudiate, but since those words are synonyms, that makes absolutely no sense.
1. In america, polygamy was refudiated long ago.

2. Atheists are attempting to refudiate God.

3. Censors routinely force the media to refudiate certain "curse" words.

Word coined by the "Wasilla Hillbilly Shakespeare" meaning to really tell someone off.
When that Levi started opening his piehole and saying nasty things about me, I told Bristol, 'You better refudiate that boy if you want to stay part of this family.'
