After Sarah Palin's successful reality show debut last night, she's also being credited with the '2010 word of the year' from the people at the New Oxford American Dictionary. The show, Sarah Palin's Alaska, had the biggest premeire of any TLC show to date. The word, refudiate, is apparently a mix of refute and repudiate and means to reject. This is all crazy if you ask me. It seems like we're rewarding someone who has time and time again proven to not be the sharpest tool in the shed, and clearly someone unfit to lead this nation. And what's worse, we're giving her a platform to say whatever she wants. Why do we keep fueling her fire and allowing her to stick around? Who honestly cares that much about what she has to say? I think Democrats and Republicans alike can agree she should not be the face of the future of politics, so why do people take stock in anything that has to do with her? I know she has some admirers, but I just can't see what's so great about this woman.
