Sarah Palin has taken a lot of heat for coining the word "refudiate" recently. She was also ridiculed for citing Shakespeare's coining of words.
I think it would be more appropriate to compare her to Lewis Carroll, whose word Jabberwocky gave us the verb "chortle" (a cross between a chuckle and a snort).
We already know that Palin is a poet at heart. Her tweets have been called "Alaskan beat poetry" and recited by Emmy-award winning thespian (and former Shakespearean actor) William Shatner.
There are plenty of reasons to criticize Sarah Palin's statements. Her inventive language, however, should not be the focus of criticism.
