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.

    And, as usual, she is the only one who knows what #(number)nerd.....? could possibly mean. Somebody should explain to her what those symbols at the top of the keyboard actually mean.(and that they DO have meanings)

    Tis better to be thought a fool rather than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. She sounds like the bitter girl who was never asked to the dance.

    Assclowns? Grow up Sarah. Also, you haven't worked your ass off, get a real blue collar job like a pipeline welder and you'll find out what work really is.

    Palin wrote the book on "pathetic."

    The only thing Sarah Palin and her supporters are "working their asses off" to accomplish is dividing the American people between the "haves" and the "have nots." I would like to see this woman go the hell away, along with Nitwit Romney and his goofy wife!

    The woman is pathetic! Why do we continue to give her a forum for her spite?

    She's just jealous that no one asked her to the "Nerd Prom". Apparently the after party by a fairly liberal fashion magazine was OK. Yeah, we get the real joke. Her.

    Please stop giving this woman a platform from which to spew her nonsense! It was proven years ago that most Americans don't like this woman and we surely don't give a hoot about she "thinks," if you want to call it that!

  16. Go Sarah Go (away)

    Palin = Queen Assclown. Can't she just go away already? We've had more than enough of this vapid cow.

    I don't understand why Palin is still featured in CNN. This woman is irrelevant today.

    How'd she feel about it the years her husband and oldest daughter went? I suppose it was OK those years in her eyes.

    Yes, Sarah, lame indeed.

    She's just sore because she's not a real politician.

    I feel very sorry for this very very sick puppy. She has had her 15 minutes (plus some) in the spot light. And, her day(s) are over. She is desperately trying to even use profanity to try and get someone/anyone to pay any attention to her. And, she just doesn't realize that no one cares what she has to say about anything. About the only one in the family who has any sense is her estranged husband who just goes on about his business and keeps his mouth shut.She and Karl Rove ought to form their own fan club, watch it fold and then fade off into the sunset. But, neither one of them is smart enough to do something that simple.

    I wonder if Ms Palin complained when Reagan, Bush or Bush did the same thing...I'll bet not
