Refudiate Well on its way to becoming a real word.
Sarah Palin will probably run for President, and I would hate to see her take office, but I also can't deny that her presidency would be entertaining. And what do we want from our politicians besides entertainment? One of Palin's latest accidental moves of genius was to use the word "refudiate". She isn't the first person to use refudiate, but probably the most famous. It's a blend of refute and repudiate, obviously, and the word is really taking off. Most people using it know it's not a "real" word, but much like the Bushism "misunderestimate", it does have a use.
