Malaprops and "Refudiation"

When someone focuses on your malaprops rather than what it is you are saying, especially when your malaprop combines two words with essentially the same meaning so it is really unambiguous ... it's a good indication that they don't have a good "refudiation" for what it is you are saying.

Of course, Sarah Palin didn't call for the prohibition by government force of the building of the Mosque.  She called on peaceful Muslims to come out against the display of insensitivity against and the symbolic dominance over the predominant American culture given the nature and circumstances surrounding what happened there.

I think a majority of Americans probably agree with her.  And there's nothing wrong with that.
