Oh my: Palin endorses … Carly Fiorina; Update: Palin responds to critics

posted at 4:37 pm on May 6, 2010 by Allahpundit

It’ll be fun watching commenters freak out about this.

Carly is the Commonsense Conservative that California needs and our country could sure use in these trying times. Most importantly, she’s running for the right reasons. She has an understanding that is sorely lacking in D.C. She’s not a career politician. She’s a businesswoman who has run a major corporation. She knows how to really incentivize job creation. Her fiscal conservatism is rooted in real life experience. She knows that when government grows, the private sector shrinks under the burden of debt and deficits. We can trust Carly to do the right thing for America’s economy and to make the principled decisions she has throughout her professional career.

Please consider that Carly is the conservative who has the potential to beat California’s liberal senator, Barbara Boxer, in November. I’m a huge proponent of contested primaries, so I’m glad to see the contest in California’s GOP, but I support Carly as she fights through a tough primary against a liberal member of the GOP who seems to bear almost no difference to Boxer, one of the most leftwing members of the Senate. Carly needs our support in this crucial election year when we have a real chance of putting an end to the Pelosi/Reid “Big Government” agenda…

California is still Reagan Country, and Carly promises her “Reagan Conservative” values will be put to good use for her state and for our great nation. Shaking it up in California is long overdue. Let’s help Carly do it!

Yeah, Chuck DeVore’s the “true conservative” blogosphere favorite but he’s also hovering at 13.6 percent at last check in the poll of polls. Sarahcuda likely took a hard look at the numbers, figured her endorsement wouldn’t be enough of a bump to salvage him (especially in a blue state that’s likely to have more than its fair share of RINOs), and decided to stick with someone who has a better chance to win. Besides, as Ambinder points out, Fiorina has deep pockets and now owes her a big favor, which will come in handy if Palin decides to run in 2012 or 2016. And don’t forget that Fiorina was a campaign advisor to McCain two years ago. If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Palin this year, it’s that she’s loyal to a fault.

I think we need to poll this one to measure the heart-ache. Below the poll you’ll find the latest Democratic attack ad; fans of Carly’s freaky triple deaky “demon sheep” spot won’t be disappointed. Exit question: Won’t the Palin endorsement be a liability for Fiorina in the general election in a state as leftist as California?

Update: Uh oh. A grassroots revolt on Palin’s Facebook page?

Update: An update to her Facebook post. Good enough?

I’d like to add a few things about my Carly endorsement because some reaction right out of the chute calls for more information:

Carly has been endorsed by the National Right to Life, the California Pro-Life Council, and the Susan B. Anthony List. She is pro-life, pro-traditional marriage, pro-military, and pro-strict border security and against amnesty. She is against Obamacare and will vote to repeal it and prevent the government takeover of private companies and industries. Carly is also a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. Like me, she is a member of the NRA, has a 100% NRA rating, and she and her husband are gun owners. She is pro-energy development and believes as I do in an all-of-the-above approach to energy independence. She is against cap and tax. And most importantly, Carly is the only conservative in the race who can beat Barbara Boxer. That’s no RINO. That’s a winner.

The answer to the exit question is yes. Wasn’t someone else ahead of Fiorina? Maybe this was designed to actually help that other person, knowing that this might actually hurt Fiorina? Or not, I dunno.

This is really disappointing and seems very knee-jerk to me. I can’t believe Palin would endorse Fiorina given her positions and the way she has been luke-warm toward Palin. Geez . . .

KickandSwimMom on May 6, 2010 at 4:41 PM

Apparently, friendship, comradeship, is very important to Palin, and Carly Fiorina was there in 2008, when it counted.

I was leaning towards Fiorina anyways… We need to beat Boxer.

My real conundrum is for CA Gov. I don’t like either of them, but I find Whitman, simply awful awful awful. But she’s got deep pockets, and truthfully, that matters. Oy.

El_Terrible on May 6, 2010 at 4:43 PM

This is a desperation move by Fiorina to get Conservative primary support. There is less than four weeks to the primary and Campbell has opened up a lead in the polls. If Fiorina was out front she would be avoiding Palin like the plague.

Barbie and her 30% approval rating will endorse anyone ahead in the polls, so when they win the perception is that she’s popular and influential, even when that isn’t even close to the truth.

I don’t know. California does have some conservative areas.

terryannonline on May 6, 2010 at 4:44 PM

I can see what she’s trying to do here, of course. She’s thinking she’ll endorse the only candidate that’s not Tom Campbell that has a chance of winning.

But a slightly less wet candidate isn’t a great improvement over a total wet! Her support could have gone a long way to help the true conservative in the race, Chuck DeVore, with his fund-raising.

Oh, how my poor heart yearns to be represented by Sen. DeVore…

Fiorina on the GOP’s approach to the Hispanic community:

There has been a very unfortunate racist tone that has emerged in a lot of the discussion about immigration and that’s inexcusable. We must be a country that welcomes legal immigrants to this country. We must be a country that recognizes that we have industries like agriculture that have depended on temporary migrant labor for generations.

Charming.

Help me out, Californians. Is Fiorina any more liberal than Scott Brown, whom everyone here couldn’t wait to win in Massachusetts? Carly wouldn’t be my first choice, I suppose, but isn’t she better than Boxer?

As I said when she endorsed McCain, she’s either stupid or a cynical operator. Either way, a fool or a fraud. We have plenty of both. Broom her.

austinnelly on May 6, 2010 at 4:53 PM

Cold hard fact #1: Not every true conservative running is going to win in all the state contests out there.

Cold hard fact #2: Palin endorsements without actionable financial apron strings are ceremonial in nature.

Cold hard fact #3: All politics are local.

Take the more effective campaign, augmented by candidates who makes fewer mistakes than their rivals, and fuel by great turnout and core support enthusiasm, and you got a winning combination that trumps anything any politico (popular or not) dangs out in the form of an endorsement any day.

Yeah. I already, and a lot of others, took her to task on this on FB. I’m sorry, AllahPundit, but your freaking love affair with polls can dive off a cliff. I’m SO glad you’re a NYer and don’t have a say in the politics of my state. With PEOPLE LIKE YOU we’d see some redeeming quality in voting for Arnold for Governor again, if we could, JUST because HE’S A REGISTERED REPUBLICAN. Never mind the FACT that he and the DEMOCRATS POLICIES have no differences between them. Yeah, that’s a recipe for greatness in California. Vote for Fiorina JUST because you THINK she has a BETTER chance to WIN while we’re still in a PRIMARY that has 3 candidates via for the center piece. Boxer is done, no matter who gets selected.

Sultry Beauty on May 6, 2010 at 4:54 PM

Winning matters. There’s no point to nominating the most conservative person in each state if they can’t win.

I don’t like RINOs, but RINOs like Brown, Snowe, and Collins (Deep blue states) help us keep Obama from running the table. California is a deep blue state.

RINOs in red states are another matter.

El_Terrible on May 6, 2010 at 4:55 PM

Carly is just like McCain.
We will have to hold our nose to support her if she gets nominated but the alternative is worse.
I support Devore but I would be satisfied with anyone who beats Boxer.

austinnelly on May 6, 2010 at 4:56 PM

I look at it this way, she can endorse whoever she wants and she has. I think this was a mistake, but hey, she’s an adult, she can do as she likes. This is just one more thing she’ll wind up having to address should she ever run for higher office.

Every politician makes mistakes and for the most part, there are not millions of folks second guessing every thing they do. In this case however, there are millions and millions of people just waiting for her to screw up, stumble and/or fall.

I’m sure this gives folks like Allahpundit a thrill up their legs since they enjoy pointing out her screw ups. I say let’s give them their chance to be thrilled and hope the woman doesn’t keep doing this sort of thing in future. If she does, then those of us who had hopes for her will either move on to better candidates or find ourselves supporting another McCain.

She may have actually called the candidates and talked to them. I saw DeVore at an LA County GOP meeting and his stump speech left me underwhelmed. I came away thinking, this guy agrees with me on the issues, but he’s not believable as a candidate or as a Senator. He didn’t make a convincing case for his ability to win, or to legislate.

Presumably Carly Fiorina is to the right of Tom Campbell, the socially-liberal (but strict fiscal conservative) RINO choice. She’s very electable, has lots of money, and could be a capable leader in the Senate. I think it’s a good choice.

joe_doufu on May 6, 2010 at 4:57 PM

No freakout or heartache here. I disagree with her and plan to vote for Chuck Devore, but I’m hardly going to have the vapors over this. An endorsement is a guide, not a substitute for one’s own thinking.

Love Devore but he has no shot in the general election (or the primary for that matter). Carly is significantly better than Campbell, and probably equally or even more electable (once you factor in her personal dough).

People want to write off Paul for some reason, but the 2012 campaign is going to dwarf his 2008 effort. We’re going to start mobilizing a lot sooner and hopefully going after the other primary candidates.

Polls matter.

They show trends, and if SP is the smart woman you all think she is (which she is), she is clearly seeing a tide towards one candidate over the others.

If the guy Chuck is polling low, why the hell would SP endorse him? This is politics. Welcome to the real world.

“Traditional republican?” Dude, you can claim that they have the best ideas in the world, since that’s just your opinion, but there’s no way to support the notion that their views are “traditional republican” (although Rand has apparently disavowed some of his old man’s more bizarre — I mean “non-traditional” — positions.)

As much as I hated to see this, I agree with Sarah. I live in California and although I will vote for Devore in the Primary, he has ZERO chance in the general election. This is California !! Carly Fiorina will be able to hammer Boxer the way a man just simply could not. I will hold my nose and vote for Fiorina if she is head to head with Boxer. I think Palin is right on this one! It’s a bummer but it’s true.

Who the heck is Carly Fiorina? I could care less about California. Can’t wait till the state drops off the face of the earth.

Hey, watch it. Some of us have to live here!

And some of are still proud to live in the golden state fighting liberalism before some here were born.

Fiorina has one of the best possible chances of unseating Boxer. Yes, you Devore-bots have no chance. He may be more conservative, but HE CAN’T WIN—PERIOD.

BOTTOM LINE: PALIN KNOWS THIS AND SO DO A LOT OF CALILFORNIANS THAT DONT WANT TO SEE BOXER AFTER NOVEMBER–INCLUDING ME!

it’s the easiest path to losing and being an embarassment in 2012.

The Dean on May 6, 2010 at 4:48 PM

I suppose a Paul supporter would know plenty about that.

DeVore is a nice guy, but he couldn’t beat Himmler. Sarah did the right thing.
