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.

    Why does anyone in the media still care what Sarah Palin has to say about anything? She serves no elected office, she is an intellectual lightweight, and she has nothing meaningful to say. Ever. She does look good in running shorts. I will give her that.

    What's pathetic is her attempts to stay relevant and the hilariously transparent bitterness of being so far out of the inner circle. I find her use of crude language to address the American public equally pathetic. She's got a family full of children and this is the example she sets for them? Shut up, Sarah. Right now you're about as interesting as Kim Kardashian. Consider coming back when you gain 30-50 IQ points.

    The bug wit speaks again. Poor double digit IQ Sayree didn't get an invite so needs to drum up some attention. Palin, McCain, Ryan, Romney. Can the party get any lower?

    I respect Sarah and think very little of Obama and his putrid corrupt administration

    How strange. She is a media creation. The media followed her every move for years until people stopped caring. I mean, a washed politician who hasn't been in office for years and will never be elected again gets front page coverage on CNN, and yet she is bashing the media? Oh the irony.

    I seem to recall her wanting very badly to be a "pol."

    Sarah, you weren't invited because they were afraid you and your clan of grifters would have stolen the silverware.

    Well, it's not like any of them drove all over the US in a rented bus, begging for the media to look at them. Sounds like the press sure covered this. Jealous much?

    thats funny that she claims she cares about the working class when she has 100k wardrobes. such a hypocrite. Give up palin, you will never be president or vice president. Let it go.

    "God... does anybody know of some hot chick we could prop-up in front of McCain to make him look better? How about that twit from Alaska... the one who sounds like a soriety girl talking through her nose? She's good-looking but dumber than a bag of hammers... Is that a problem? Naw... our base watches NASCAR and thinks the earth os less than 6000 years old. They'll just stare and hoping the cold perks those things up! She's perfect!"

    only reason this blowhard keeps making the news is because the liberals at CNN know she is more damaging to the Republican party's image than helpful

    The Alaskan 1/2 term Governor prom queen was upset she wasn't invited .
    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.

    When is her next book that nobody will read coming out ?

    Can anybody imagine what a McCain Palin administration would have been like , a joke !

    I don't know why we should care what that idiot community school graduate thinks. Another example of the hillbilly element that is so prevalent in the Republican Party. Palin is as irrelevant as her party at this point.

    I didn't read the article. No one really has to. Its so over, its gone past pathetic and is now just sad. Its just a reminder of how utterly cartoonish the repugnicans and their "conservative values" have become. Next stop... extinction.

    For someone with so much to say and who claims to be so patriotic....why did she quit? Americans don't quit...we fight for what we believe in. For some one who hates "lamestream media" she sure can't get enough of its spotlight. She should just go moose hunting and leave the politics to the people who at least have the courage to serve out their terms.
