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 sure Sarah, please tell us how hard you're working for your money. Just another irrelivent comment from one of the world's most irrelivent airheads. She should spend more time looking to see Russia and less time "enlightening" the rest of us.

    "The rest of America is out there working our asses off while these DC assclowns ..."

    Um, where does Palin work now? She quit or was fired from her last two jobs that I can recall.

    Typical sour grapes from someone who's severely lame brain has ensured that she will never be invited to the show. If she didn't care she wouldn't need to make such an effort to denigrate something that has absolutely nothing to do with her. "fighting for our freedom's..." says someone who wholeheartedly supports the Patriot Act and wants to tell women what they can and can't do with the health and well being of their own bodies.

    Attends WHCD after-party in 2011. Doesn't get invited in 2013. Bitterly tweets “That #WHCA was pathetic. The rest of America is out there working our asses off while these DC assclowns throw themselves a #nerdprom" Where's your job, Ms Palin?

    Archie Bunker had the perfect description for women like Sarah – Dingbat.

    Yet – had she been elected she would have gladly invited the press corps for this annual prom and gotten off some more wink-wink-gotcha and momma-grizzly jokes. She such a hypocrit and publicity seeker.

    Guess it's not pathetic when a Republican is POTUS. Not as pathetic as quitting being the governor of a state for a bigger payday.

    Thanks again to John McCain for bringing this genius into the national political conversation. A heartbeat away if they won is 2008 is pretty scary.

    Palin speaks for all those who are paranoid, irrelevant, and evil. Even those types have a voice in the US.

    I think someone is bitter because she didn't get invited...

    Says the woman who's proven time and again that she's an empty headed media whore who has absolutely no relevance, buys clothing and jewelry with people's campaign contributions and couldn't even finish her term as governor.

    Seriously, stop reporting everything this useless excuse for a human being says. She has and has never had anything relevant to say.

    I didn't hear this moron's commentary on the subject when George Bush attended the event.

    Sounds like a little bit of sour grapes perhaps?

    She's just mad she wasn't invited.

    By "permanent political class", she of course refers to elected officials that have chosen to serve out their terms to completion.

    Sara give it up and go home. Perhaps study a bit about Paul Revere and the American Revolution.

    She sounds jealous. My guess is that she's never been invited.
