Sarah Palin Uses Her TV Show to Try to 'Refudiate' Origins of 2010 Word of the Year NY Daily News

Sarah Palin used Sunday's episode of TLC's "Sarah Palin's Alaska" to "refudiate" what the Oxford University Press called 2010's word of the year, reports the New York Daily News.

The former governor of Alaska complained to her husband on the TV show that "refudiate" was simply the result of a mis-typed tweet, the story says.

But the article points out that her memory might not be accurate, since she misspoke the word while on Sean Hannity's Fox News show, saying President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama "have power in their words. They could refudiate what it is that this group is saying," referring to the NAACP's position on alleged Tea Party racism.
