(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.
What's with that key around her neck? Is that like sewing mittens on a jacket so you don't lose them?
Sour grapes in Juneau for someone that didn't have the first clue about Middle East
What a joke...
So, Sarah, I hear you don't have a job.
Of course she can't take a joke....although I'm not sure why....her whole campaign was a JOKE...
Sarah who? It's irrelevant what she thinks or says. A lot of the jokes would have flown over her head anyway.
The lamest thing about the media is that they still seem to pay attention to what this imbecile says. STOP ENABLING HER. She is completely useless. Stop covering her, for cryin' out loud.
Dear One incomplete term Governor; You will not even carry Alaska if Obama ran against you. You got your fifteen minutes of fame; you made millions and you are a beautiful looking person. Please do not think we are all twits like your followers. You crave publicity. IF by some god's mistake or folly you were elected VEEP you will be reveling in the spotlight and swallowing every putrid self congratulatory adjective that is said in your honor. Wacilla to DC you have made your money now, Please do not disgrace yourself further with your pathetic comments.
Sounds like sour grapes.. I remember a time when she made herself the butt of every joke. She knows she doesn't stand a chance running for office, so like a bitter old lady, she uses current issues to make herself sound intelligent; as if people aren't suppose to have normal lives outside of politics!! Bush had 8yrs to destroy this country and no one heard a peep out of Palin until her name was on the ticket.. funny how that works.
Sarah "working hard"? Once more, Please go away, you brainless fraud.
Psychologists would call this "yet another desperate cry for help". If only our mental health services weren't so underfunded...
Did someone irrelevant just say something?
Boo frickin hoo, Palin. Sorry the 'cool kids' won't let you be a part of their club.
We'll get a waaaambulance to you ASAP.
Who is Sarah Palin again?
Isn't her 15 minutes over now?
Sara, do everyone a favor and Contact Michelle Bachman and perhaps the two of you study a little about Paul Revere and the American Revolution, and where Lexington and Concord are. Fourth graders study it....
who cares what she thinks?
Palin, the nerds are partly making fun of you.
She would definitely know about pathetic
Why on God's green earth is anyone asking what Palin thinks?
Isn't it ironic that Palin, the joke of American politics, has a problem with a night filled with jokes and laughter. I guess she is jealous that someone is stealing laughs from her everyday behavior.
Worked? Worked? Surely she can't be talking of the person who served only two years of her elected office. Surely not from a state that is one of the top receivers of Federal aid in the U.S. Surely not the person who gave tax breaks to family business while mayor. Worked? At avoiding any real work.
Sarah needs to stay in Alaska and keep her comments to herself ........she is narrow-minded and can't seem to grasp the big picture of things!
Who cares. She's just mad she wasn't invited.
Palin the" mouth of ignorance" and the voice of the " tea pathetics" has become the clown of the right. She commands attention as a comic for those that find insulting intelligence a platform for relevance. She is so way out of her league and she just doesn't get it.
