Palin makes another grammatical error by misusing the word 'cackle' in a tweet

By Abdul Nisar

New York, Aug 20 (ANI): Looks like Sarah Palin is taking English grammar to another level altogether-after likening herself to Shakespeare by coining the word 'refudiate', she has now made another verbal slip when she tweeted the phrase "cackle of rads" on Wednesday - the 90th anniversary of women's suffrage.

The former Vice Presidential candidate used the expression in an apparent response to EMILY's List, a political action committee that aims to elect progressive female candidates.

The group held a news conference declaring Palin does not represent all women.

"Who hijacked term: 'feminist'? A cackle of rads who want 2 crucify other women w/whom they disagree on a singular issue; it's ironic (and passe)," the New York Daily News quoted Palin as tweeting later.

According to the Huffington Post, Palin's use of 'cackle' is not used appropriately.

By dictionary definitions, cackle is a shrill laughter or foolish chatter.

Bloggers suggested Palin meant to use the word 'gaggle' or 'cabal.'

The ex-Alaska governor was immediately slammed on Twitter for her misuse of the word.

MSNBC's Keith Olbermann called Palin clueless.

"W/out 'feminists' she'd have virtually none of the freedoms she abuses daily," he tweeted.

In July, Palin was criticized for using the made-up word 'refudiate.'

She later followed it with yet another tweet defending the imaginary word and comparing herself to William Shakespeare. (ANI)
