Finding out how former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin feels about last night’s White House Correspondents Dinner is as easy as logging onto Twitter, where she called the ceremony “pathetic” and mocked “DC assclowns” for throwing themselves a party while everyone else is “working [their] asses off.”
Tough stuff, Sarah. Tells us know you really feel.
The White House Correspondents Dinner, thrown every year, is called “nerd prom” for a reason. The event is D.C.’s biggest party, hosting a collection of celebrities, journalists, TV personalities and politicians. It’s a “who’s who” of… well… everything, only it takes place in our nation’s capital and it airs on C-SPAN.
And Sarah Palin hated it.
After the Correspondents Dinner wrapped up, Palin tweeted a one-sentence review of the event:
“That #WHCD was pathetic. The rest of America is out there working our asses off while these DC assclowns throw themselves a #nerdprom”
On her Facebook page, she went even deeper into her criticism of the event, writing:
“Yuk it up media and pols. 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.”
Does Palin actually have a point? Maybe. It’s hard to watch something like the WHCD from either side of the aisle and not wonder why there’s no work getting done on Capitol Hill. But Palin seemingly forgets that this happens every year, and it’s always an entertaining show no matter who is in office.
She also seemingly forgets, as Andrew Kirell points out, that if Palin had won the 2008 election, “she’d now be one of those assclowns yukking it up at the WHCD.”
