Sarah Palin has her knickers in a twist again, taking to Twitter — having been out of politics for five years now, she has no other public platform left besides social media — after the White House Correspondents Dinner to complain, using very classy and dignified (she’s really presidential, isn’t she?) language, about not being invited to the ball:

Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old African American, was fatally shot by a police officer in Minnesota after being pulled over for an expired license tag. In Virginia, Caron Nazario, a Black and Latino Army officer, was pepper-sprayed after being stopped for lacking a rear license plate — though a temporary plate was affixed to his rear window.
