'Refudiate' Named Word of the Year by Oxford University Press


I noticed that the Oxford University Press building on Madison Avenue has a window display for their Word of the Year announcement. How delicious! I had to take a few shots.
Being a word lover I adore 'refudiate'. The good folks at the press chose wisely and showed that they are freely engaged in the world of ideas and ignoring politically correct restraints. Especially in the context of Sarah Palin's famous tweet about the Ground Zero Mosque.
Well played, OUP!



One word. Free of charge.

Publicity for Oxford University Press for crowning Sarah Palin's 'refudiate' Word of the Year. In the near incalculable multiple millions.

Liberal heads exploding across the globe. Priceless.

I thought that (Navy) "corpseman" should be the new word.

'Slurpee' wouldn't have been bad either!

Certainly a better word than teabagger, from last year's short list...

I just noticed that the definition in the window display left out the word 'muslim.'

Palin's original tweet called for muslims to refudiate the Ground Zero mosque.

The staff at the OUP may be the good people you credit them with being. They may be leftists so comfortable in their bubble that they are crimson at the thought that anyone passing their headquarters failed to share and appreciate their snark. Many of them view Palin and her supporters as illiterate savages who you can smile at during an interview in the hope that they just might bite the head off of a snake for your entertainment.

To many in the Arts and Media establishment the difference between a visit to flyover America and the 3rd World is that the natives visited on Globe Trekker are noble and the Americans are simply vulgar. The show did do one episode I saw in which they cruised through the rural South, it was entertaining.
