New word of the year:

I know there's a poem in here some place,
I just feel like refudiating anything creative today,
...but I'm gathering up steam to work on it!

I repudiate
any refute
from you
and refudiate
your behavior!*

( The new word of the year, of those chosen by the New Oxford English Dictionary, is 'refudiate'
CBS news: "From a strictly lexical interpretation of the different contexts in which Palin has used 'refudiate,' we have concluded that neither 'refute' nor 'repudiate' seems consistently precise, and that 'refudiate' more or less stands on its own, suggesting a general sense of 'reject.' "the New Oxford American Dictionary said in a press release..........While Palin may have made “refudiate” famous, she is by no means the first person to coin the term. According to the New Oxford American Dictionary the Fort Worth Gazette was the first to publish the word in 1891. Nor is Palin the first politician to combine refute and repudiate; in 2006 Senator Mike DeWine asked “Fox and Friends” viewers to “refudiate” comments made by Senator John Kerry.)
 *ugh! Ha, told you so.


  1. Now that Dianne was a perfect refudiation of her refudiated aspirations to be anything other than a little money grubbing piece of refuse.

  2. That *%$$§Ü woman! We're only one beat away from the Bunker. My God even the rest of us are living on our nerves. It's getting like Doctor Strangelove II out here. Peter where the hell are you...

  3. I can't help feeling that the world is tipping gently and surely off its axis...

    Thanks for the smile today, Dianne!
