Palin records robocall for Fiorina

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2010/images/06/08/art.palinfilegi.jpg caption ="Sarah Palin has recorded a robocall on Carly Fiorina's behalf."]

Burbank, California (CNN) - Sarah Palin recorded a robocall that went out to voters in the last few days on behalf of California Republican Senatorial candidate Carly Fiorina, a spokeswoman for Fiorina's campaign confirms to CNN. In the call Palin said she wants to "….help get our country back on track" by supporting Fiorina.

Palin's endorsement of Fiorina last month had irked some Tea Party activists in the state who backed state assemblyman Chuck DeVore. Fiorina has been attending some Tea Party meetings in the last few weeks trying to build up her support among that group.

In a speech to the anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List last month Palin defended her endorsement. "Some wanting to accuse her of being a RINO (Republican In Name Only), I say no, no. There in the deep blue California, she is unabashedly pro-life, and all those other common sense conservative things that she stands for. She's the real deal. And I appreciate you, too, being bold enough and strong enough to take a stand in that race and to take a stand in so many of these races across the country," Palin said.

DeVore's campaign reacted to the call said "Chuck DeVore doesn't do robocalls, given his opposition to things are, well, illegal. A pity Carly Fiorina doesn't feel the same way. But then, she usually doesn't."

Fiorina campaign spokeswoman Amy Thoma told CNN the Palin call is legal because it is involving a federal race-not a state one which does not allow such calls.

    Even though I don't agree with all of Sarah Palin's views, and she seems to be a very nice and fun human being, I think she needs to rest and take care of her family. She can still tour every once in a while, but you can tell by the photo above that the lack of relaxation and all the negativity and bad-mouthing about President Obama is starting to show in her face (and she's still in her early 40's). Sarah, you are an attractive woman. Don't let that beauty fade out before you're 50 caused by negative vibes,etc. With the rate that you're going nowadays, you will be exhausted if you'll ever become President or even a Presdential candidate for that matter. As a Obama supporter, I understand that you have disagreements with his policies (even I don't agree with some), but do us a favor, and express your opinions with some class. MAYBE more people will stop and listen to you.

    That should turn people away Fiorina! When people hear that Palin screechy annoying voice on their phone – they will immediately delete it. God that stupid woman is obnoxious.
    Besides Palin has said so many stupid things lately she has become the kiss of death for a candidate – Palin is useless, worthless, and irrelevant.
    Can we please stop hearing her drivel every day?

    HP is doing very well right now thanks to Carly Fiorina's strategic vision which everyone on the HP Board of Directors failed to appreciate at the time. So you are on the side of their BOD's now? How about the current CEO they hired to come in and slash jobs like a butcher?

    Remember last year when she called for a ban against ROBOCALLS?

    Another Palin bait and switch, I see. Who can believe any of the things she says, when she says it both ways?

    Please collect her extemporaneous speeches and statements, write them down verbatim - and post them. Then we'll see what and how she really "thinks" – without anyone editing or writing for her. No complete sentences, no coherent thought - ah, a great leader of a great nation?!?!

    Carly is "unabashedly pro-life", eh? Thanks for the warning. Take heed women, are we heading back to the allies like in the 50's? Keep your church and personal views out of my personal life.

    There should be a ROBO-RE-CALL for her.
    How can we really expect anything positive from the Republicans today when all they do, with the strong overt and covert support from Special Interests and the select few who they patronize, is use scare tactics and emotional appeals to self-interests aimed to excite and manipulate? How can they solve any of the real problems we have when they won’t even address them and instead only irresponsibly fault and obstruct others efforts? How can we trust them when they literally put their political ambitions above all else and just use subterfuge to rationalize and justify? How can we expect anything constructive from them when all they do/say is aimed at returning to ‘more of the same’ that got us where we are? When ‘deregulation’, ‘open markets’ and ‘small’ government is used to rationalize run-away greed, self-indulgence and gross dishonesty as being ‘conservative’ how can we then expect them to effect real reform? To ever get the Republicans to once again be the ‘Grand Ole Party’ conscientiously, honestly and responsibly representing the people we need to firmly reject what they have become, to resist their manipulation and to reject their subterfuge (and the Tea Party movement just doesn’t get that). To accomplish that we need to be more conscientious and responsible ourselves by rejecting our own irrational ‘more-for-me-for-nothing’ mentality that feeds into accepting their destructive manipulation.

    I didn't think Carly could get any more repulsive, but I guess I was wrong.

    Is Sarah paid for making the recording or does she gets so much per call made?

    The only way Sarah Palin could help this country is to go away and stay gone.

    There are some endorsements you just don't. But then, Fiorina hasn't shown herself to be someone of particularly good judgment. Why expect her to change now?

    Four and the Door,
    HP is doing better now because they fired Fiorina and her disastrous policies, which had caused the stock price to fall 60%. In fact, Fiorina has been listed as one of the worst CEOs of all time.

    Palin's trying to befriend rich women but she's way out of her league, she wasn't welcomed at their tea parties and dinners prior and she won't ever be welcomed. These women have old money that they worked for and didn't pander for. Water seeks it's own level Sarah Palin and your level is still with the trailor trash.
