List Of Banished Words Includes Sarah Palin's Refudiate

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Michigan college`s annual `List of Words Banished` from the language include the Sarah Palin-coined `refudiate` and online terms viral,` `epic` and `fail.`


Lake Superior State University`s 36th annual List of Words Banished from the Queen`s English for Mis-use, Over-use and General Uselessness for 2010, which was compiled from more than 1,000 online submissions, also includes `Google` and `Facebook` used as verbs.

Another Palin favorite, `mama grizzlies,` also made the list, alongside `man up`, `the American people`, `I`m just saying`, and `live life to the fullest.`"


The word "refudiate" has gone viral, but it`s played out and anyone who uses the word coined by Mama Grizzly is guilty of an epic fail.

"General Uselessness" perfectly describes Sarah Palin, we need to man up and banish Palin from our everyday conversation and from the airwaves.

I know it`s hard for the American people to break the habit, but let`s vow to never google Sarah Palin again; I`m just saying.
