Is Sarah Palin Up There With Barney Google and Homer Simpson?

Sarah Palin has claims a "Shakespearean right" to make up her own words. She cites that The Bard created words all the time and when she is accused of making a "gaffe" (to quote this article by Ted Webb) she says she MEANT to say that.

For instance, she recently created the word "refudiate" instead of repudiate.

Does this put her in the same league as famous cartoon characters who also created their own words? Beloved characters like Barney Google ("heebie jeebies" and "google") and Homer Simpson ("D'oh!")?

Palin as influential as Simpson?!?! No way! I refudiate any comparison to Mssrs. Google and Simpson!

At least she knows there are only 50 states, not 57. But then again, she has an unfair advantage: she was born and raised in the USA.
