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.

    Look at her ring finger, left hand. Nada. Perhaps Todd is smarter than he looks.

    When one has no real job how would she be able to say she is out there with the "rest of America" working their asses off? She makes no sense!!!

    Why are her twitters deemed to be news? I hear more erudite commentary amongst gatherings of the homeless!

    Sarah the Loser. Sarah the Quitter. Now we have Sarah the Whiner. How can this miserable excuse for a human make herself any less appealing?

    For someone who hates the media so much she sure doesn't turn down any face time.

    Palin who? Photo of some reasonably decent looking chippie, but who is she? Kind -sorta familiar, but can't quite place her. Anyone notice she resembles Tina Fey on TV? Looks like a fishmonger's wife trying to sell something ..... Fish, or mebbe herself? Tchuss!

    I'm unclear how this is news. CNN please use better editorial judgement.

    I know you're upset, Sarah. You see something you'll never attain, and you're jealous. That's ok, though. You'd just quit half-way through the dinner if you were attending.

    yeah... who has time for that? or for that matter who has time to shoot a season's worth of a self-serving reality show, right? (y'all remember the kate gosselin episode? lol)

    I'm sorry, but she looks like a guy in drag.

    Palin is a typical GOP hypocrite. She has no problem all the other lame media events that fatten her bank account. Palin is all about the money and that is why she resigned as Governer to cash in on her sudden fame before all the skeletons in her closet ruined her political career. Palin = cash hungry sellout, full-time hypocrite and part-time clown!

    Why doesn't someone organize a class action lawsuit and we'll go after John McCain for bringing us this idiot.

    Nobody cares what Palin has to say. And CNN, stop advertising her.

    Sarah, you obviously need help. Do I have to put my uniform back on. Geez, after all I am retired.
