What in the heck does "Refudiate" mean?

More stupidity from Sarah Palin. Making up more words.
It all started with this tweet from Sarah Palin: "Ground Zero Mosque supporters: doesn't it stab you in the heart, as it does ours throughout the heartland? Peaceful Muslims, pls refudiate."
 But refudiate is not a word. (Okay, John McCain said it in 2008, so maybe he got it from her or vice-versa. Regardless, it's NOT a WORD!)
   It is agreed that Palin was mixing the words "refute" and "repudiate" to create the never-before-heard term. Regardless, or maybe I should say "irregardless" (that would be a Palin-ism), don't you think public speakers would NOT use a word if they were unsure of what it meant, or if it was even a word?
 How embarrassing.
 - What's more embarrassing is that her reality show from Alaska on The Learning Channel (and her having a show on THAT channel is incredibly ironic, is it not?) garnered 5 million viewers for the first "episode."
  WELL... maybe I do understand the high ratings. After all, people always want to look more closely at a car wreck!
   I can't understand the fascination with this woman. She's dumb and hasn't completed an elected office. I certainly don't want this fool running the country. She probably thinks New Mexico is a foreign country.
Enough said!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
