Former Alaska governor and vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, who has fiercely fought crony capitalism and the permanent political class, absolutely blistered the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday, tweeting that the dinner was “pathetic” and that “DC assclowns” were throwing “themselves a #nerdprom” while “the rest of America is out there working our assess off.”
In recent years, Washington veterans have expressed similar concerns. Tom Brokaw has compared Washington to “Versailles,” Ron Fournier has said the dinner represents a Washington that is “out of touch” with the rest of the country, and New York Times writer Mark Leibovich has said Washington’s permanent political class--and especially the press corps--does not realize how much the rest of the country disdains them. In her Facebook note, Palin wrote:
There were some other people there, too. I’ve just burned my Duck Commander cap and I’ll never watch another episode of Duck Dynasty... EVER!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.
Then, to make matters even worse, from conservativebyte.com:
Christie: Obama ‘kept every promise’
Anyone still think Christie has a shot in 2016?
Check it out:
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Monday that President Barack Obama “has kept every promise he’s made” about helping the state recover from Superstorm Sandy.
Speaking on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program on the 6-month anniversary of the deadly storm, the Republican governor said presidential politics were the last thing on his mind as he toured storm-devastated areas with Obama last fall.
“The president has kept every promise he’s made,” said Christie, widely considered a potential candidate for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. “I think he’s done a good job. He kept his word.”
I guess that’s why he’s so prominent at the AssClowns' Prom (see pic in "Palin Slams...' above.) Of course Christie is pretty ‘prominent’ anywhere he is.
As one of the commentors said: “...So what! Obama kept his promises to Christie; so that means that its’s okay for him to continue to lie to the rest of America, and to Israel? Obama should have kept his word; or was it sold to Christie for 30 pieces of silver, and a bear hug?”
