Was it just a mis-typed tweet? On Sarah Palin’s Alaska Sunday, Sarah Palin mentioned the dustup over her use of the made-up word “refudiate,” telling husband Todd she’d merely made a typo while sending a Twitter message on her Blackberry.
But the New York Daily News calls foul, noting that prior to that tweet, Palin had used the word in an appearance on the Fox News show Hannity:
Palin’s memory is not entirely accurate. Prior to her Twitter message, she misspoke the word on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show while discussing the NAACP’s stance on Tea Party racism.
“[Barack and Michelle Obama] have power in their words,” she said. “They could refudiate what it is that this group is saying.”
The famous tweet–about the “Ground Zero Mosque” came later, says the Daily News:
“Ground Zero Mosque supporters: doesn’t it stab you in the heart, as it does ours throughout the heartland?” she tweeted. “Peaceful Muslims, pls refudiate.”
Sunday’s SPAlaska was a feast for Palin-watchers, with the former Alaska governor also mocking conservationists and their “pretty little pencils.”
