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.

    Her dislike only affirms the value of just about anything!

    Obviously, Sarah has a problem being out of the limelight. Perhaps, she'll get more accustomed to it in the future. Losers sometimes take longer to come to grips with reality!

    If she had a brain, she would be dangerous. Pres Obama is trying to start brain research. Maybe they can use her pea sized brain for not doing research on such a poor example..

    Palin took every perk and privilege the governor's office could possibly enable and she's the one lecturing?

    She is moaning about 1 night? Really?
    And how come they are only political class when she isn't there? If she and McCain were there on a second term is she saying they wouldn't have had the event and they wouldn't be part of the 'political class'?

    ^ Oh heck yeah.

    Dems will end up with both houses and the white house again, just like last time the WaZZilla harpy ran for office.

    Palin must read her own articles to have any audience at all. Do not know where she came from but it is pretty sure where she is headed, STRAIGHT down the sewage system,where she belongs.

    For those who find Palin-speak a bit challenging, here is a simple translation of the latest snarkism emanting from the spotlight-seeking Whining Wannabe from Wasilla:
    "Yoo-hoo, everybody. I'm over here!"


    She will get plastic surgery, pose nude and finally submit herself into rehab.

    ^ It's her destiny.

    That's OK. The jokes would go over her little bimbo head anyway.

    Sarah is right when she says she hates to attend #nerdprom, one has to be intelligent to understand the jokes.Sarah and smart don't go together,this is just the after fact of an after party she allegedly attended and decided if the after party is full of media types and journalist who actually read something including some magazines if I might add then the actually party would be way too much to handle.
    We must also give her a break because if someone finds out she is there they may call her out and make fun of her, who wants to made fun of at a nerdpom for crying out loud....leave her alone the Barbara said let her stay is in moose land!....

    Poor little Sarah is old news and she isn't invited out much any more, except for lunatic fringe tea-party get togethers. She's so jealous of anyone who is relevant that she just can't control that nasty mouth of hers. When Rupert Murdoch's Lying Circus shows you the door, your 10 minutes of fame is definitely over.

    Sarah, all dressed up and no where to go. Alls not lost, she can keep an eye on Russia from her back porch.

    Occasionally somebody loyal to Sarah Palin pipes up on these postings. I have to wonder what that person would be like... They see leadership value in a person who lacks the academic skills of a good high school student, quits everything they start, and constantly offers childish quips with no substance. Who could still be a fan of this mindless twit?

    Why does the news keep bringing her up. The Pager is more "hip" than she is for god sake! What has she ever done to garner any true national credibility? She did half a term as the Governor of Alaska and Failed hard as a VP candidate is all she has ever done! Why do we still need to talk about that over glorified wind bag in Alaska?!?!?!

    Had it not been for the unsocial media, who would've know that the blight from Alaska had any comments at all. As if we're really interested. Go bye-bye Sarah!

    Poor Sarah has no job and all the Palin family is unemployed. Memories of 2011 when Sarah demanded Fox give her tickets to the Event and she told Secret Service she wanted a few mins alone with President Obama. Sarah hoped to do the same thing to Obama that she did with Glen Rice back in the day. But Security kept her away from the President. She is mad because she isn't included. Mitt treated her life the 47% and McCain avoids her. Sarah has a Pac but her few Tea Party followers don't have enough to give her to live her life style.

    A Republican with no sense of humor. What a shock!

    She attended in 2011 and now she's calling it pathetic?! Sounds to me like someone is feeling snubbed for not getting invited two years in a row. Give it a rest, Palin, you're no longer relevant and nobody cares to listen to your yammering.
