Why Doesn’t My Spellchecker Refudiate This Word?

In a tweet Sunday, Sarah Palin suggested that New Yorkers and Muslims should reject plans to build a mosque near ground zero, saying “Peaceful Muslims, pls refudiate.” She corrected the invented word in another tweet, saying they should “refute [sic] the Ground Zero mosque plan,” later defending herself by saying Shakespeare made up words too. Her final tweet of the day was yet another correction. Apparently she hadn’t meant to compare herself to Shakespeare, but rather to Patrick┬áStar, the┬áco-star(fish) of Spongebob Squarepants.
