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 is this woman still in the news? No one cares about her or what she thinks.

    Thanks CNN <- (totally facetious)

    – I had almost completely forgotten about this attention monger.

    Is she "doing" Ted Turner? Why does CNN consider her opinion relevant in any way, shape or form?

    Aren't we all glad that her and old crusty weren't elected when they ran. Crusty is screaming for war AGAIN. this is the 4th time since America said no to the odd couple that he wants to go to war.

    Now, I know why Sarah Palin was against gun control background checks. She couldn't have passed one.

    I would never vote for someone who spends their entire existence in angry,mocking mode. Take a look in a mirror, Sarah: you have no ground to stand on.

    Palin avoids dinner because she doesn't understand sentences with proper grammar or words of more than two syllables

    Oh how the mighty have fallen, when even Fox lets you go because you have not said 1 relevant thing in the past 16 months, the only ledge left to land on is CNN. But, what's lower than that..........posting signs in her front yard probably.

    She's no fan of the "nerd prom" and I'm no fan of hers. She should just shut up and go away. You lady have made plenty of money, go and spend it in Alaska and leave the rest of the world alone.

    Wasn't it just yesterday that Mama G was strutting her stuff at CPAC slurping a big Gulp and talking about her "rack." I guess the American people weren't working their asses off then. The woman is the lowest of the low. Thaks Sen John McPalin for your legacy. Pathetic.

    Since Sarah hates the media, why does the media bother to print anything about her? If Sarah has a problem, let her spend the time, energy and work to solve it. Until then,let's have a black out of all news about Sarah Palin and her family.

    Palin for Pres, she is the real deal, speaks the truth

    Did Sarah Palin really call the President of the United States of America an "assclown?" Coming from almost anyone else it would be unbelievable.

    The poster who said that she doesn't get the concept of poking fun at yourself nailed it. Self-deprecation is a concept that she can't fathom. Don't worry about what the winners of elections are doing while the losers of elections sit in their houses and chug moose blood moonshine. Just go back to polishing Todd's snowshoes or whatever.

    Yeah, Palin is working her ass off! Get real. Go away, Sarah!

    All: before you judge, read the history of the White House Correspondence Dinner, Sarah Palin speaks out on an issue that mirrors Nero fiddling while Rome burned to the ground. Conan's "attack" on the press is as bad as a roast for Jerry Lewis. When all of you wake u p and smell the music maybe you will realize our current President is more interested in "calming" the press than he is in taking care of the 300 million citizens who depend upon him. Sarah Palin sees that and tries to alert the American Public to the travesties caused by this President and his "group". Out of the public eye? BS, This lady has your interest in her scope and will not give up until they put her under the ground
