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.

    @tess Are you serious?? Do you think this was invented by the Democrats? It is a Washington tradition...lighten up...did you go on a rant about Katrina victims, and soldiers dying in Afghanistan and Iraq when Bsuh was up there laughing his ass off....

    @Tess Adams.
    Take the tinfoil hat off. Many were on food stamps because they had no other choice after Bush crashed the economy. Do you have any idea how many jobs were lost just prior to President Obama being elected? Would you have those people starve??

    I am also sick of people like yourself, who probably don't know one black person personally, yet continue to spew your lies, ignorance and innuendo. Many blacks, just like whites, are very hard workers. Many of us work for very little, and scrape by due to non-equality in the workplace. Take off your tinfoil hat and look around, things are improving. And if you want to see a bunch of proud people on food stamps, look no farther than your local trailer park.

    I really wonder sometimes why she even bothers to talk. Im not a democrat, or a republican for that matter, but she just needs to stop talking.

    Hey guys lighten up on Tess. She is just channeling Sarah. Trances make you say silly things, like "I'm a moon unit."

    What's 'pathetic' was the republican party trying their hardest to put this trailer trash in the White House.
