Hottie Sarah Palin Coins New Word: Squirmish

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Discussing the situation in Libya with Fox News`s Greta Van Susteren, foreign policy expert and noted wordsmith Sarah Palin said, `I haven`t heard the president state that we`re at war. That`s why I too am not knowing -- do we use the term intervention? Do we use war? Do we use squirmish? What is it?`"


Sarah Palin prepares for a foreign policy debate by going to her travel agency, and reading travel brochures. But how do you prepare to debate a politician with a penchant for coining words and spouting non-sequiturs?

Sarah Palin`s made up term "refudiate" was named top word of the year by the New Oxford American Dictionary. Don`t be surprised if within a few weeks Robert Gates and Mike Mullen will be referring to the American intervention in Libya as a "squirmish."

Palin`s saving grace is that she is so cute; I would love to squirmish her. In this context "squirmish" conjures sexy-time action.
