Americans wonder why the World HATES them – well, the word “Hummer” followed by the word “limo” might be ONE clue. However, they might also look to the fact that the “Oxford American Dictionary” (the Oxford ENGLISH Dictionary should SUE) has just declared “refudiate” – their Word Of The Year.
Are they KIDDING???
The word does not EXIST. It was merely another one of legendary right-wing airhead Sarah Palin’s many BLOOPERS – she mistakenly mashed up the words “repudiate” and “refute”.
Thus, in addition to SLAUGHTERING the Queen’s English on a daily basis, America is now REWARDING IGNORANCE of it!!!
