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.

    Sarah doesn't attend those dinners because she wouldn't be able to get a word in anywhere. She'd be introduced and the whole place would bust up laughing and not stop. Besides, she can dish it out but she can't take it. Anyone can sit behind 12' privacy walls in their log home ivory palace and mouth off. She needs to quit complaining and come up with viable solutions that would benefit everyone. But I guess being the brunette version of Ann Coulter suits her well; a flap jawed bobble head that likes to hear herself talk. As a recent Alaska resident, I can say that she doesn't speak for the rest of the states residents. She's self serving at best.

    Why does her opinion matter? She quit as governor of AK and has since trounced around as some kind of irrelevant political pundit. She britches and complains about everyone else but has yet to offer up any substantive solutions.

    So, I guess this means she didn't get an invite. But hey, that's okay cause we really don't care what she thinks anyway.

    No one listens to you anymore, Sarah, for the same reason they quit listening to Dan Quayle years ago...

    Perhaps if she showed a bit more class in her language life would be a bit easier for her. Some people don't want to let go of the limelight even well after their 15 minutes is up.

    Who is this Palin person and why does anyone care what she thinks? Is she some has-been or wanna-be that failed and decided she can now criticize others? Oh, well, the Earth keeps turning.....

    Palin is so yesterday!!!! Why does the media keep printing her idiotic comments. She isn't intelligent enough to just "shut it". She was a disaster for Alaska, a disaster for John McCain, and a disaster for the country. She has absolutely nothing going for her except her appearance. She may well have a place in the entertainment industry, but she's totally unqualified for politics.

    Who care what this bigoted 4 eyed freak thinks. $arah, go back to Alaska and hibernate with the other momma grizzlies. If you dare open your hate filled trap around them, they will quickly close it for you!

    who is this angry person and why is she given any attention? seems like she is very childish and ranting like a big baby full of hate.

    "Pathetic"? Pot, kettle?

    Let us congratulate Sarah for connecting the dots. Bashing others, no matter how inane her criticism, has enhanced her bottom line considerably. She may never have considered this capitalism before, if she even knows what capitalism really is, but putting up virtually no money as an investment and getting the payout she's received – why, who wouldn't disdain their principles for that? Wouldn't you?

    Quitter Pallin? She puts herself in the hardworking league? She is the quintessential talking head that is all mouth and no brains.

    Obviously sour grapes, since she wasn't invited to attend. Poor Sarah!!

    Pathetic is right, that perfectly described Palin. Get a life.

    So? Is she angry because she wasn't invited by ANYONE? or is she angry at herself for being a hypocrite because she clearly attended one of the functions associated with the event? Ultimately, who really cares. She is so over as she slowly fades into the history of comedy.

    "working OUR asses off"? Really, Sarah? Please tell us exactly what YOU are doing to solve the problems of this country, other than bashing democrats on a daily basis.

    You would think that since Sarah doesn't possess a brain tat maybe she would have a sense of humor. No, she truely has nothing. What a sad sad person.
