The queen of bitter jealousy had reared her ugly head as Sarah Palin attacked the White House Correspondents Dinner, despite the fact that it is a charity event.
From deep within her social media bunker, Sarah Palin tweeted.

She also posted to her Facebook page, just so everyone would know that Sarah was jealous, “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.”
The real jokes here are that Sarah Palin has attended the WHCD parties before.

Sarah Palin also seems to have no idea that the White House Correspondents Dinner is a charity event that raises money for scholarships. After her best friend was attacked on Twitter by delusional Palinesque right wingers, BFF Greta set the record straight on her blog.
Van Susteren wrote, “It seems many of you may not have all the facts. The White House Correspondents Dinner is NOT at the White House. It is at a hotel in DC. It is NOT paid for by taxpayers. Those who attend the dinner pay (news organizations pay for tables.) It is a CHARITY EVENT and money is given to scholarships. Each year the sitting President and his wife are the guests of honor. Frankly, most Presidents would probably prefer not to go but it is a tradition.”
Many of the people on the right didn’t have the facts, because Greta’s sleazy best friend was intentionally misleading them in an attempt to manufacture outrage.
Van Susteren has written three posts on her blog that each trying to explain to the right that this is a fun charity event. Her commenters concluded that the scholarships only went to kids that supported NBC and MSNBC. (Sigh.)
Let’s talk about the real reason why Palin threw her little tantrum. She is jealous. There was a big spotlight shining, and she wasn’t invited. The fact that President Obama was a featured speaker sent her bitterness into overdrive.
Sarah Palin is so bitter, jealous, and angry that she attacked a charity event because she wasn’t invited to be the star. After all, how is she supposed to continue to stalk President Obama if she can’t even get in the door?
Palin is a nobody, and it is eating her up inside. You know she watched the WHCD hoping that somebody would mention her name, but no one did.
The world has moved on, but Sarah Palin is still bitter, angry, and unable to get over 2008.
