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.

    I've never heard that there is anything that she likes. The amount of anger and hatred that she carries around has made her a very unhappy and ugly person. We should really just feel sorry for her, but it's hard to when she gets so ridiculously nasty just to get her name in the "lamestream media".

    Lighten up Sarah...if the GOP had been in office you would have been there yukking it up with them. Ronald Reagan was a master in holding court at these events. Maybe you need a lesson in this fact, which would explain why the GOP would not let you within 10 feet of the White House. And I say this as a long time registered Republican.

    Why does the media report what this has been says? America already knows everyone is smarter than her. Please give it a rest

    Plain reminds mean of a bobble head. That is more than likely more intelligent than she is.

    This has been a tradition started in the 1920s to bring the President & Press together for 1 night to help improve press/President relations. Palin needs to fade away quietly as her comments are increasingly less relevant and more ridiculous. This is silly.

    Why does the news still talk about Sarah Pain? She is old news, total self-absorbed, a quitter and big looooooser.

    Republicans – how does it feel to have voted for this woman?

    Somehow, I can't take Sarah seriously when she speaks of work. Dropping out of the governorship to become a reality TV star...then getting dropped by FOX. And she's supposed to know something about "work"?

    Poor SP. She's just bitter and jealous because she knows she will never, ever get to be one of those "DC assclowns." Keep being your irrelevant self, SP!

    I am amazed that she still persists; just like Bachman- lies lies and more lies. She works for a living???? never a day so far!!!! It disappoints me that people like Palin, bachman, and Rove actually can breath the same air that we breath. They are the scum that feeds those who have no clue and support them. It seems to me that there is no hope for the human race when these people can survive!!!!

    Palin is just upset that no one with any influence, brains, or common sense takes her seriously. She has made sure that she keeps peeking out in the media to say "I'm here! Look at me!" But she has nothing relevant to say. She's not stupid. She's just not a real player.

    Palin is the one who's a joke. She's yet to realize that her 15 minutes of fame were up a LONG time ago.

    This woman is so ignorant and such a narcissus she just can't get 'it', the irony and hypocracy. When will people finally turn their backs on the palins and bachmanns of the world? To paraphrase: "have they no decency. haven't they done enough?" We don't need the perverted reasoning of a palin or the echo of 1930's Germany in a bachmann. I have to think most Americans are smarter than it appears and have finally seen the danger of hollowness of these two.

    Wow! Sarah couldn't even get a date to the nerdprom?
    She really has become the endless buffet of punchlines,
    Who isn't even welcome at the freaks and geeks table.

    I don't understand why this warranted press coverage. Just quit mentioning her and maybe she'll go away.

    Oh, lady you are so out of touch! And a disgrace to female gender. My wife has more class and intelligence in her little toe nail. Barbara Bush is right "Stay Home"! Maybe your kids can teach you something, if you can keep your mouth shut for more 15 seconds.

    You couldn't even finish the job the Alaskans elected you to! You're pathetic! Please delete your twitter account and do us all a favor!

    You Know what is truly pathetic? Sarah Plain's continual whining. She couldn't hack it as a governor. Quitting on her state, then thinking the world gives a darn what she thinks. She's a quitter and that in my book makes her useless.
