Oops! Sarah Palin Refudiate Gaffe (Video) Blames Blackberry, Twitter Not YouTube

Sarah Palin earlier misspoke and made up the world refudiate, what many believe was a loose combination of the two words "repudiate" and "refute."
Palin is now attempting to set the record straight and said that is not the case, essentially 'refudiating' the claim she made up the world claiming it was only a typo.
On Sunday's episode of the TLC reality TV program where she stars, "Sarah Palin's Alaska," the former Alaska Governor claimed the made up word was just fat thumbs.
She blamed her Blackberry and said a Twitter post that contained the word was only a typo.
"I pressed an F instead of a P and people freaked out," said Sarah, pointing out that her blunder was the second-most-searched word on Google trends.
While many of you are looking down at your keyboard and noticing that the "f" and "p" are on opposite sides of the keyboard and not a usual typo, Palin adds:
"Make lemonade out of lemons."
Palin seems to have forgotten she earlier actually said the word on Fox News as well, surely no typo.
Watch the video below as Jimmy Kimmel points out her mistake on the air and on the social network website Twitter.
Did Sarah misspeak, mistype or both?
