The Top 10 political quotes of 2010

3. Sarah Palin: ‘reload’

Sarah Palin’s tweets have drawn controversy. Ms. Palin’s defiant “Don’t retreat. Instead — reload!” tweet came after the signing of the health care bill, which she opposed.

Palin again caused a stir in the Twitterverse in July when she called on peaceful Muslims to “refudiate” the ground zero mosque plan, coining a new word in the process.
