This weekend was the annual White House Correspondent’s Dinner and, for some weird reason, that got Sarah Palin all hopped up and in fighting mode. Despite the fact that both her husband and her daughter have attended the event in years past, she tweeted:

On her Facebook page, she continued:
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.
Bitter, party of one, your table is ready. As the Washington Post notes, both Todd and Bristol Palin have attended this same event in years past, and in 2011 Sarah herself attended two of the after parties put on by MSNBC and Vanity Fair. Guess who else was there, and even pre-taped a comedy sketch for the event? John McCain. And apparently she didn’t think the rest of America was working their asses off when Bush attended for 8 straight years. Or Reagan.
And what is this “our” thing? She certainly isn’t working her ass off. She quit as governor specifically to avoid working, so she could do reality TV shows and collect big speaking fees instead. Seriously, could this be hypocritical on any more levels simultaneously? Rachel Maddow absolutely nailed it when she said, “Sarah Palin is now the guy who hangs out in the high school parking lot showing off his car, five years after he graduated.”
