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.

    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!"

    Yes Well
    She doesn't like 'Nerds' Well that's understandable since Nerds are usually considered to have brains. Something Sarah Palin does not

  9. Seriously?

    It doesn't matter what you think of Obama - he is still the President and that position demands respect. You don't call the POTUS an "assclown". Will someone just please take away this woman's microphones and close her Twitter account?!

    Hmmm...both Bush's attended, Reagan too and I'm sure she would have as well if McCain/Palin had won. Just sounds like more sour grapes from Ms. Quit! Who really cares anymore what she really thinks? And I use 'thinks', very loosely!

    Yeah but if she had been invited she'd have been there in an NY second. Good grief the WWOTN (wicked witch of the north) is bitter since that house fell on her.

    Usually i don't agree with and or like anything Palin says since she herself is a giant a**clown joke but...for once I agree with her. Politicians shouldn't be celebrating anything period right now since most of America is slowly going to ruins under th ecurrent Republica & Democratic ruling classes of blow hards who can keep their jobs till they die run the country.

    SHORTER TERMS FOR CONGRESS & SENATE! VOTE OUT THE OLD AND THE CORRUPT!

    I LOVE seeing headlines about Sarah Palin, (also Glenn Beck, Rush, Limbaugh) The more these mentally ill people keep talking, the more the GOP fades away. Normal conservatives are so disgusted by what today' s GOP has become that they either vote for the Dems, or don't vote at all
    Keep up the good work Pinhead Palin!!!!!!
