Former governor Sarah Palin, struggling on Sunday to walk back her controversial demand that Muslims "refudiate" a community center in downtown Manhattan, compared herself to William Shakespeare. Her point is that both she and the greatest playwright in English-language history both make up new words and that English is a "living language." Unsurprisingly, Palin's many critics are having a bit of fun with this unusual claim. What if Sarah Palin's life was written as a play by Shakespeare?

Urgent to @SarahPalinUSA: Shakespeare would rather have died than "coin" the meaningless non-word "misunderestimate."less than a minute ago via web
