Sarah Plain and Dumb

In case you missed it yesterday, former half-term Governor and current They representative ("they" as in the "them" who keep crying "they" are gonna take "their" country back), Sarah Palin, gave us all another example of how non-bright she is.

Palin tweeted:






So, what's all the hubbub, bub? Well, "refudiate" is not a word. Now...being that we blog and tweet, we will be the first to admit that our grammar ain't (see!) always the best, especially in those mediums. We have had more than our fair share of misspellings and other poor grammar, so...no big deal. Palin came back with a subsequent tweet asking "peaceful New Yorkers" to "refute the Ground Zero Mosque plan." So she doesn't understand that "repudiate" and "refute" are two separate words. We gotcha.



Or...we think her sharpie writing may have just smeared.



(We will ignore for the purposes of this post, the utter hypocrisy in Palin seemingly desiring to curtail religious freedom and we suppose have government step in and stop a private entity from doing whatever they damn well please with their own property, because we all know religious freedom and anti-government sentiment for people like Palin are based strictly on their own terms: principles they are for or against depending on their own interests).


So...again...what's the big deal?

Well...to defend herself, Plain elected to put herself beside the Bard, William Shakespeare. Uh...we don't think so, sista.


Nevertheless, it has led to all kinds of fun on Twitter with a new topic trending: Shakespalin. Some of the best so far:


-How's all that bein' or not bein' working out for ya?

-But soft, what light from yonder window breaks? It is the East, and I can see Russia from my front porch.

-To suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous liberals, or to quit half-term, and by opposing, rake in speaking fees.

-Those clamorous harbingers of blood and death panels.

-A moose, a moose! My governorship for a moose!
