Palin no fan of ‘pathetic’ #nerdprom

(CNN) - Conan O’Brien and President Barack Obama may have had the political crowd in high spirits at Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, but in Alaska, Sarah Palin wasn’t laughing.

“Yuk it up media and pols,” the former Alaska governor wrote on her Facebook page. “While America is buried in taxes and a fight for our rights, the permanent political class in DC dresses up and has a prom to make fun of themselves. No need for that, we get the real joke.”

On Twitter she was even more barbed.

“That #WHCA was pathetic. The rest of America is out there working our asses off while these DC assclowns throw themselves a #nerdprom,” she wrote.

While this year’s dinner may have rubbed Palin the wrong way, she’s shown a little more love for the annual event in the past. In 2011, she attended an afterparty sponsored by Vanity Fair and Bloomberg News, held at the home of the French ambassador in Washington.

But she’s never attended the event, and has long mocked what she calls the “lamestream media” for an overly cozy relationship with the political establishment.

    Poor Ms. Palin got her breaches too tight probably because she wasn't invited.

    We have lower taxes now than in the last 20 years and Palin complains about being buried in high taxes. Maybe that's because she's a multi-millionaire now and wants the perks that come with it.

    QUits her job and makes millions talking trash on FOx and "writing" a book. SHe's as bad or worse than the politicians.

    Individual income tax is the lowest it's been in decades.

    If Palin calls that 'buried in taxes' then she not only can't remember Reagan, she can't read history, either.

    who cares what this speaks from both sides of the mouth dingbat has to say. She's a vacant, teleprompter reading former weather lady. Someone please take the microphone away. Get the hook. She's well past her 15 minutes of fame.

    Sounds like someone pouting because she's not important enough to have been invited.

    Not surprising. She has no sense of humor. She sucked on Saturday Night Live back in '08 too.

    Sarah Palin, once again, proves just how empty her cranium is. Until the payroll tax holiday expired a couple of months ago, taxes in this country were at their lowest point since WWII. And exactly what "rights" is she talking about that Americans are fighting for? Didn't her side just win in Congress when the Senate refused to even vote on a bill that would require background checks on purchasers of guns? Palin using the terms "assclowns" has to be the ultimate irony. And her claim that she has been working her ass off is preposterous. Palin is an unemployed millionaire who could not even finish her full-term as governor of the state that is ranked 47th in population, surpassed only by Vermont, Wyoming and North Dakota, which all have less than 700,000 citizens. New York City has more than 8,000,000. Palin attacks this event, having never attended a single one. Why? Because she has never been invited and it just pisses her off.

    Grow up Palin. You sound like a little jealous girl ... and that is pathetic.

    She likes nothing but the sound of her own voice. The Former needs to explain herself on how she taxed the Alsaka oil industry out of jobs in her breif stay in office.

    Oh please shut up already, Sarah! And don't include yourself in "the rest of us". This Alaskan knows you walked off the job half-way through and collected per diem from MY state while living in YOUR OWN HOUSE! You are the biggest joke in politics......
