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.

    Why do we care what she thinks. Time to ignore her and maybe she'll go away.

    She clearly has no sense of humor or ability to take a joke. This isn't a surprise from an ideologue.

    Somebody has a bad case of sour grapes.

    Palin again, huh? Since we haven't heard much of her lately, I sure thought (hoped) we had heard the last of her. She needs to take a "permanent) hike. Poor thing; she's letting her jealousy show.

    Words like "joke" and "-clown" coming from Palin...all too ironic.

    Thanks Sarah for a breath of reality and fresh air!

    MMmmm. She says, "The rest of America is out there working our asses off..."

    I'm wondering why she uses the "our" pronoun. What exactly does she do? She quit her job.

    The rest of America is working their a-s off. ??? Maybe so , but NOT one Ms. Palin. Being a nattering talking head is by no definition "working." She represents the working folks like Big Biz represents Green Peace. Not. Joe and Jane Sixpack need her like they need a hole in the head.

    Anyway, it's nothing but comical to hear from quite likely the biggest LOSER in American history...

    Palin doesn't like it because everyone there down to the waitstaff is smarter than her!

    While the rest of America is working OUR asses off? Really Sarah? You include yourself in that? Funny, I thought you quit your job.

    I used to dream of visiting Alaska. Palin has ruined it for me.

    What a SHOCK to hear Carobou Barbie speaking in derogitory terms to insult smart people. I am sure, like her knowledge of political issues, it hasn't changed since junior high.

    Is "grifter" a job?

    Words spoken from the biggest monkey on our planet, She's an opportunist who has never worked a hard day in her life. She knows nothing about that. Shame on Senator McCain for giving her the opportunity to rise to fame. She is a meaningless clown that should look at her life as blessed considering the size of her IQ. Best thing we Americans can do is shut her off and give her no more publicity. Let's get her out of the media America and give credit to those who have something to say.

    Sarah who?

    I'm sorry, her "star" faded from the national scene years ago. Even Fox News got tired of her. She's not worth a drop of ink (or pixels on a screen) of press.

    now, she does know that Bush participated in this same event during his white house years, right???

    Palin is only upset because she isn't at the dinner.

    Doesn't this ignorant woman really have a clue that NO ONE cares what she "thinks"? She is a nobody who couldn't even finish out one term as Governor of Alaska; she made a fool of herself when she was on the GOP ticket as the vice-
    presidential candidate. Sarah, GO AWAY!

    Thank you Palin. Every time you speak from Alaska the hot air from your illiterate mouth warms the rest of the country up. It got up to 80 in LA.

    Wow, bitter much? Love them or hate them, Obama and Conan each do more work in a week than this professional whiner does in a year.

    It's about time you rode off into the sunset on your moose, Sarah.
