Skip to comments.Facebook turns on Palin

Former Alaska GOP Gov. Sarah Palin's endorsement of Carly Fiorina in California's Senate race has prompted a fervent blowback on her Facebook page, long Palin's safe haven for delivering her message.
The revolt is coming from Palin supporters who also back Chuck DeVore a tea party favorite who is campaigning against Fiorina in the Republican primary.
Palins Facebook page is littered with comments opposing her endorsement of Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett Packard.
The only REAL CONSERVATIVE is Chuck DeVore. Fiorina is a RINO and we don't need any more of those in [California], one irate commenter wrote. Why wouldn't you back Chuck DeVore???
Sorry Sarah but I think Chuck DeVore is the conservative candidate you should be supporting, added another, who was followed up by a DeVore supporter who wrote: I don't agree with this endorsement AT ALL! What are you thinking Sarah?

If he ran, I would support him.
“Devore never got traction, and none of us want Tom Campbell to win.”
This seems to be the essence of conservative politics in California for the past 20 years or so. For some reaon that I don’t really understand, Christian Conservatives just don’t ever seem to build up any fire in their campaigns.
Its almost as if they expect the fact that they are Christians to carry them through to victory.
“There was no reason for Palin not to endorse DeVore in the primary...and then later endorse the GOP winner in the election.”
Wrong, wrong, wrong!
This is a Stop Campbell maneuver, and it is necessary. Without Sarah’s backing Fiorina, Campbell will win, just like when Swarzenegger won. Same kind of politics, and same people pulling the strings.
Fiorina wins the most support of tea party people (not Devore).
This is a primary race, no one faces Boxer unless they defeat the hard left, Tom Campbell first, Devore cannot do that, Fiorina is very close to pulling that off.
Your point of the Boxer match-up while irrelevant, is also laughable, there is not a real difference in any of the match ups against Boxer.
“Coats, Fiorina, McCain?”
Not fair pissant!
Fiorina is nothing like Coates 0r McCain. - She has consistently been on the right side of all the big issues. Her biggest fault is her flamboyance and her ego.
Mitch Daniels is no conservative, look at where he is when it comes to social conservatism.
She has? I recall her cheerleading for TARP. This chick is a two-faced RINO
Ryan has "amnesty" problems. I believe he sponsored a couple of smaller amnesties.
Why is his “running” stopping you? You can write in his name. Why won’t you?
Wrong, that poll was an outlier as the follow up poll showed, Devore remains at his consistent 20% deficit that he could never overcome and the undecided figure is 23%, not 40.
Fiorina is within the 4 to 7 point range with the money and numbers to defeat Campbell in these closing weeks.
BTW, I think it's important for everybody here to note that Sarah waited until four week before the primary with Devore being 20 point down, before she finally endorsed Fiorina, instead of Devore.
Looks like kabar's "you can't be a little bit pregnant" anology doesn't apply in this case.
2/3 of the party were for Tarp.
2/3 of the party is a pack of liberals.
Assuming she wins, a huge assumption, when she stabs you in the back, I’ll remind you of the fun.
Putting someone in office who you know you cannot count on when the chips are down is pointless, rather it be the devil you know than the betrayer pretending to be your friend.
Yeah. That’s the point. It doesn’t matter who you vote for, it matters who takes office.
What’s really frustrating is all of these guys who are the conservative versions of Obama voters. They love the fresh new guy without a resume.
Any blot — any tough decision — on the resume and it’s RINO! RINO!
I’ve been tough on some of Palin’s premature endorsements (I still think Rand Paul will come back to bite her) but this is the right one at the right time. DeVore is just playing spoiler at this point. He had a long time to catch up and if it were Fiorina vs. DeVore, then it’d be a different story.
But it isn’t. He will not win and Fiorina is the least-worst option at this point. Remember my tagline:
I am stunned at the level of support that Tom Campbell and Barbara Boxer get here, because we 'know where they stand'.
People here are passionate, and sometimes they just listen to the RINO charge and jerk the knee. Sarah has a record of being pretty careful about who to endorse.
The biggest issue apparently is that DeVore has a cloud over his head because he has no paid campaign staff or something like that.. they are all staffers and now he is being investigated. This is a killer. DeVore is toast for the Primary no matter what.. and folks just don't want to see it.
