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.

    While I am not a fan of hers she is spot on with this. Americans are loosing hope, lost jobs and can not find work and Obama goes out having fun. While some may think he is poking fun I think he may have told the truth for once about himself, read between the lines.

    As if this moron knows anything about working. The only job she's had for the past few years is running her ignorant mouth.

    @northerstar: "This has been a tradition started in the 1920s to bring the President & Press together for 1 night to help improve press/President relations."

    Now, now, northerstar, you're expecting to Palin to actually KNOW something before she opens her trap.

    Palin = Quitter, Liar, Mooch

    Oh poor Sarah-we know you would have loved to have been there and that you desperately wish you were relevant. Unfortunately neither will happen.

    I think it's great she never misses an opportunity to look stupid.

    Here, I'll put it in terms she'll understand:

    Palin calling the White House Press Correspondents Association dinner "pathetic".

    Takes one to know one – and you know them all!
    Nanny-nanny boo-boo!
    Pffffft!

    I thought since Fox fired her, no body will hear from her again.

    Of course she isn't a fan. She's not a fan of anything that isn't about her.

    Please stop writing about her and let her just fade away. Why is her opinion on anything newsworthy?

    I guess she'd rather hang out at Dancing With Stars. Talk about "lamestream". What a total loser she is.

    All Palin is good for is mockery and stupid insults–her face in the photo says it all–that act has gotten old a long time ago-CPAC was right up her ally–all she is willing to speak in front of are the backup singers to her pathetic act.

    Once again to get herself into the news she get on Facebook . Please someone do an intervention and take away her access to the internet. throw away her " smart " phone. She should go into hibernation like a grizzly bear. She quit her job and whats to tell people that are trying to do the job how to do it..If you are so smart why don't you throw your hat in the ring and get it on...then we could put you behind us once and for all.

    Palin's just mad that her name didn't come up at the roast! How pathetic!

    "Working our asses off." That's delicious coming from a person who couldn't even finish her term as governor. Her ONE and ONLY commitment that didn't involve total self-promotion. Please, just go away already.

    Sarah dear , you are a pathetic soul and a joke of the nation. You are mad and bitter because you were ignored. All this may have rubbed you the wrong way. You have shown your true colors. A piece of advice, in your spare time, if you have one, please keep on seeing Russia from your bedroom window. This will undoubtedly enhance your general knowledge in international affairs and you will be ready and well prepared for the next Presidential debate in 2016.

    What she meant to say was "I wasn't invited".
