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.

    Wow, just like the girl that doesn't get invited to the prom. Most people grow up. Palin just grows hatred.

    Let's see–a quitter, a whiner, a politician with thin skin–and finally a person shouting "look at me, look at me, I'm relevant".

    I'm sure all attendees are devastated at her criticism. The event will probably be cancelled in the future to avoid upsetting Sarah.

    Oh, Sarah, you are still acting like the bad loser high school home coming candidate. Such a person loves to do all she can to ruin it for everyone else. Such a person would enjoy spreading false vicious rumors about the victor. You lost and you are pissed off still. "So, who cares if they have their silly dinner, I don't want to be there anyway" says Sarah. You can act better than that.

    "The rest of America is out there working our asses off".....Uh Sarah for most of America it is weekend, and opening your mouth is equivalent of working your ass off? You know you are just one of the many GOP clowns, only your act is not funny at all and is mostly hot air. Secretly you are afraid that you would be the recipient of many jokes, that is why you didn't show up.

    No matter how much I hate journalists and politicians, if Palin hates them, I like them more.

    I'm not a fan of Palin, but exactly why should these people get to live so high when the rest of America is suffering? The political process, the people who represent it, and the media should not be so cozy with one another. Its the media's job to try and keep these out of control political personas in control. It reminds me of old-style professional wrestling. In public they hated each other for the cameras. But when the cameras were turned-off, they all hugged and had dinner together. Don't get me wrong, Obama is certainly not the only high-profile politician to do this. But I guess when you represent the 1%, you need to kiss their proverbial *** sometimes?

    Why is she newsworthy? She says just enough to keep her name in the news. She has no relevance to anything.
