Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate, ripped into the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner via Twitter on Saturday night, calling it a "nerdprom."
"That #WHCD was pathetic. The rest of America is out there working our [a--es] off while these DC [a--clowns] throw themselves a #nerdprom," Mrs. Palin governor tweeted.
"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," Mrs. Palin added in a Facebook post. "No need for that, we get the real joke."
