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.

    Sarah Palin is working her ass off? Last I knew she quit her job to focus on becoming a celebrity. #CompleteAndUtterLoser

    Spoken like the 8th grade mean girl who didn't get invited to the party.

    Sarah will feel better after she shoots some wolves from a helicopter with her laser scoped assault rifle.

    Once again, Sarah displays a lack of class with her choice of language, bitterness and overall behaviors of a bully. What a sad case she is. When is the lamestream media going to ignore her.

    She's not taking well to irrelevancy, is she?

    Dear Senator McCain:

    How will you ever repay the world for giving Sarah Palin this kind of notoriety? Now anything she says, no matter how dumb, is a headline I waste time reading. Why? Because I'm terrified she was ever considered for a job that would have put her one bullet away from the big red button, and occasionally need to reassure myself she isn't gaining any followers. Since you would have been the only thing between her and that button, I'm surprised you weren't more concerned about putting her in that spot yourself.

    Shame on you, sir. Shame, shame, shame.

    This simpleton is just mad that she didn't get invited to the prom. It's funny how these right wingers are never smart enough to see that they project exactly who they are when they make comments like nerdprom. She's jealous and it's pathetic.

    I guess that makes it a nothing-nothing tie – the 'nerdprom' doesn't like her either. Talk about irrelevant.

    Who cares? She was only relevant from August to November 2008, and that was to destroy John McCain's credibility.

    Is that a Penthouse key she's wearing?

    Why is this person relevant? She's never finished anything she's started; only managed to crap,on everything and then leave

    Expected words from one not asked to the prom.

    Go sit down in a corner or stand in your back and look at Russia, no one cares about what you think are say, call Roves and see if he can find you something to do, try the lip stick joke.

    Her only outlets are Twitter and Facebook. Oh, how far she has fallen.

    Palin doesn't seem to realize that she is a joke these days and that no one takes her seriously about anything. The only reason she's reported on is because news outlets know people love to make fun of her. The WHCA Dinner is always a lighthearted event. I think that's fine – government officials are people, not machines, and they should be able to have fun for a night. One event doesn't mean that everyone who attended isn't doing their job. Besides, what's Palin doing to help the country? Yeah, that's what I thought...

    Behold our next and greatest President Sarah Palin. She is superior over the liberal lamestream media.

    What is the difference between the WH Correspondent's Dinner and the Quiter from Wasilla? The Correspondent's dinner interesting, entertaining, and mildly relevant. The failed half-governor is all but three of those things. If the WH Correspondent's dinner is "pathetic", what does that make someone who can only get passing attention by commenting on it? Palin, please go back to whatever forgotten corner of the country you currently call home, and try to be a decent parent to your kids. They still care what you have to say.
