Palin Says Refudiate Appears in Fictionary

Fake News by Andy Borowitz

WASILLA, Alaska — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin defended her use of the word refudiate, telling her critics, “Look it up in the fictionary.”

While claiming that refudiate is a real word, she reserved her right to make up new words in the future.

“Everyone makes up words — Shakespeare, George W. Bush, Levi Johnston,” she said. “The only person I know who doesn’t do it is my husband, Todd, who doesn’t speak.”

Gov. Palin also lashed out at those who criticized her use of the word refudiate, calling them “incohecent.”

In a related story, Gov. Palin would defeat President Barack Obama if she ran in 2012, according to a poll published in Mayan Prophecy Weekly.
