Apparently Sarah Palin compared herself to the Bard yesterday on Twitter defending her use of the non-word refudiate saying: ". . . English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!" The Twitter community responded with a #shakespalin subject featuring suitably fractured Shakespearean quotes, according to the Wall Street Journal's Speakeasy blog entry "'Refudiate' Sparks #ShakesPalin Trend on Twitter"" authored by Michelle Kung and the Washington Post's Politics and Policy blog entry "Palin invents word 'refudiate,' compares herself to Shakespeare" by Matt DeLong. Check it out on Twitter.
