Commentary: 'Refudiate' and the birth of ShakesPalin

Just when I thought no joke about our former governor would ever make me laugh, because, like most of you, I'm so tired of you-know-who I can't even bring myself to type her name and all related humor seems more played out than a Miley Cyrus song, there appeared, sometime on Monday, a phenomenon on Twitter known as ShakesPalin. ShakesPalin's roots were planted during a Fox News appearance, something to do with the Tea Party and racism, where she allegedly used a made-up word — the linguistic love child of refute and repudiate — "refudiate."
