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.

    Put her in a lace thong and bra and some high heels and maybe we'll have reason to pay attention to what she says. Doubtful, but possible.

    What a worthless and pathetic bimbo for morons this lady turned out to be. She is a good example of what has really brought this country down: playing to idiots and the lowest common denominator, pure hypocrisy, shameless spreading of ignorance, failing in ones responsibilities to ones country and being so loud and inciteful purely for self gain. Disgusting.

    This lady quit her job as an elected official and now she thinks she represents "the working man".?
    I admit, she's very hot. But she's also very stupid.

    Maybe someone should tell her that Mrs. Obama wants all of us to keep breathing.

    "Lamestream media"- the best thing that's ever come out of that woman's mouth! And so true. ( Gosh, did hell just freeze over?)

    Sara, did you know that a small novelty shop on South Franklin St. in Juneau Street in Juneau So. is selling your image on printed toilet tissue ? I kid you not! (reflects our true sentiments).

    Really? This is how someone in grade school would act. Let the president be the president.

    Fighting for our rights? We gave them away years ago. Buried in taxes? The rich pay no taxes. The Corporation pays no taxes. The unemployed pay no taxes. She's a irrelevant as ever. That's a pity, too. We could really use to replace the Democrats. But with what?

    If anyone should know what the meaning of the word pathetic is that would be the mutant from AK. Unfortunately she is not one to look up a word to see how well it fits her.
    BTW CNN, how about some new pictures, if you have to shove her down our throats, of how she looks today? You probably don't recognize her either.

    She does not attend the nerdprom because comedians would have a field day with her. This would be a comedy writers dream if Palin actually attended.

    Is there no end this person's 15 minutes of fame. She pouts about Washington not getting any thing done and getting in bed with the media...after quitting her Governorship in mid term to take a job with Fox News.
    Pot, meet kettle.

    CNN fails to mention that Gov. Palin cancelled an invite in 2009 to the WHCD because of flooding in Alaska. But hey, why let a good bashing get in the way of facts. She put the people of Alaska ahead of herself.

    Sarah Palin is the "twit" in "Twitter".

    "The rest of America is out there working our A$$3$ off..."

    Really? This from the Governor who ABANDONED her office?

    "Why does the news still talk about Sarah Pain? She is old news, total self-absorbed, a quitter and big looooooser"

    It's because she's like a train wreck. Nobody can stay away from reading an article with her name on it, to see what a fool she makes of herself this time.

    @ralf the dog
    "By her definition: Nerd= IQ over 60."

    I think that's an Alaskan standard. They DID vote for her, after all.

    This confirms to me that conservatives/republicans are indeed boring people.

    I wonder how many tries it took her before she spelled pathetic correctly.
