Sarah Palin: WHCD Was 'Pathetic'

On a night full of pomp and circumstance, former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin had a different "p" word in mind.

Palin erupted on social media toward the close of Saturday's 2013 White House Correspondents' Dinner (WHCD), lashing out at the event.

She held similar thoughts on Facebook:

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.

While Palin may have been dissatisfied with this year's dinner, she has been a part of accompanying WHCD events in the past. Back in 2011, the Washington Post and Politico detailed how Palin was a guest at parties, including the illustrious Tammy Haddad brunch.
