"Refudiate" is just one of many new words brought to us by the Sarah Palictionary. New blogs everyday at PooporChocolateBlogs.com

So we all know that Sarah Palin don’t talk right.  Her extensive vocabulary of non-words, odd idioms, and colloquial jargon have made her a celebrity beyond her politics (or whatever it is she’s doing with her life).  In July, Palin was gracious enough to give us a new English word, refudiate (a delightful hybrid of ‘refute’ and ‘repudiate’) which has since been named Merriam-Webster’s “Word of the Summer” based on its popularity in internet searches.

Don't think this is an isolated incidence, however.  To date, Palin has almost created her own entire language.  Here are a few more words from the Standard Palictionary, accompanied by origins and definitions.

martyrick (n) : hybrid of martyr and maverick; describes an individual that is selflessly willing to sacrifice a high-ranking elected position in order to appear on conservative talk shows as a "political revolutionary"

Twidder (n) : alternate spelling for Twitter; theoretical region within the Twitter community reserved for users so intellectually barren that they consistently manage to embarrass themselves in 140 characters or less

betcha (n) : hybrid of bet and you; used to express confirmation when a simple yes would be too professional; often preceded by you, the phrase you betcha (or you bet you) is both confusing and redundant

whynk (n) : hybrid of wink and why; to briefly shut one eye in a manner that pisses everyone off and beckons the question “WHY?!”

My name is t.j .and I’m proud to say that blog became a word before martyrick.
