(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.
What time does the talent contest start?
Is she the Paris Hilton of politics? Really. What does she actually do for a living?
Bitter, party of one...
anybody that voted for the MACAIN-PALIN ticket you are responsible for this idiot still having a platform small as it may be
This half-wit has-been will do anything for a sound bite.
The Republican party has created a mess for itself because it embraces money, eaning power, business / sales/revenue OVER EVERYTHING else.
They therefore can NEVER completely exorcise Palin or Limbaugh or Beck or Coulter from being embarassing, destructive spokespeople for their party. These maroons have/ had a following large enough to watch just enough reality shows or buy enough ghost-written books to make these thorns in the GOP side have staying power. The Republican Party will not recover until they stop worshiping money [regardless of where it came from] and the party stands for some other irrefutable principle.
She's working? Really? She quit her governor gig, and Fox fired her...
What's she working so hard at these days? Staying on the celebrity radar?
Working 'our' asses off?? Yeah, right.....
....Are we REALLY sure that Sarah Darlin' is working her _____ off ?
I agree with Sarah 100%. She has the guts to express her mind. All others are conies and puppets.
Eat it, Caribou Barbie.
Are we still talking about this twit?
Sadly,Sarah Palin is right on target. Negative comments on this have me to understand there are a score of you out there who have no idea what it is you are dealing with, Study your history on the establishment of the White House Correspondence Show. Our President has a focus that is lost in this "dinner", As Sarah points out there are other more pressing issues on his plate than this,
I'm sure she had no issues with the annual event when Bush was president
Is that a pig wearing lipstick?... no just Sarah soccer mom.
Guess the nerds didn't invite her.
Why oh WHY does CNN or any other media give this_pathetic l0ser any coverage what so ever. Nobody sane really gives a hoot about what she has to ramble on about.
Ladies and gentlemen, the woman conservatives wanted to be the vice president. No need to say anything, conservatards, you're lost forever.
What no prom date! Poor Sarah !!! Did you get the message! !
When's the last time she actually did a day's work? Real work?
Like if she were ever elected President she would not participate in this event.
Right. Uh huh. Sure.
This is from a woman who so much wanted to be a part of that "permanent Political class". She is just angry and sore that she is now an outcast. And in no way does that "class" of people want to be associated with her. That's what really has her tushy all scrunched up and taut like a 2-year old sucking on a Warheads candy ball.
She forgets that it's paid for by the attendees and the money goes to journalism scholarships.
In Aesop's fable, the fox tries to reach the grapes but cannot, so he huffs off, saying 'those grapes are sour.'
2600 years later, Palin fails to score an invite, so the whole shebang is sour.
Keep yapping Sarah and with any luck the Dems will win in 2016 with talent like yours.
