Palin robocall for Christine O'Donnell

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Sarah Palin has taped a last-minute robo-call for Delaware Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell."]

Lewes, Delaware (CNN) - Sarah Palin is taking on the GOP establishment again.

"I can relate to the vicious personal attacks on Christine and can tell you it's sad to see the establishment's desperation in this," the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee says in a new robocall and radio ad taped for Delaware Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell who she endorsed last week.

O'Donnell is the insurgent tea-party backed candidate who is now giving the state's best known Republican, Representative Mike Castle, a run for his money in the primary. O'Donnell won the endorsement of the Tea Party Express this summer and both Palin and Senator Jim DeMint threw their support behind her campaign in the last few days.

The O'Donnell campaign has bought time to broadcast the Palin robocall on the radio. In it Palin says "a wave of positive change can really sweep across our land with the election of Constitutional conservatives like Christine who promise to use common sense and rein in federal government spending." She urges listeners to vote on Tuesday insisting, "We just can't afford more of the same in Washington and Christine will help usher in the real change that we need."

As money has poured in to O'Donnell's campaign and she's closed ground with Castle, she's come under heavy attack. She's been accused of personal financial problems and the state GOP filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission alleging the O'Donnell campaign coordinated with a tea party PAC. The O'Donnell campaign denies that charge.

Sarah Palin has also recorded a robocall for the establishment-backed Republican Senate candidate Kelly Ayotte in New Hampshire, among others.

    I wonder how much Palin charged her for the endorsement? If Sister Sarah was happy to try and make money by trivializing 09/11 up in Alaska she certainly wouldn't pass up this opportunity with a desperate candidate...

    In NOVEMBER, everyone who is afraid of the "Tin Foil Hat Brigade" (Tea Party), please remember who they supported and vote against them to protect yourself and the country from their truly totalitarian intentions. Muslim Taliban/Christian Taliban – which do you want running the country (like me) NEITHER??? Vote for the less crazy, less dangerous (NON TEA PARTY) candidates.

    Geez. I can imagine how this robocall goes.

    Hey there Delawarians, this here is Sarah Palin, half governor of Alaska, mayoral twit from Wasilla, and unvetted VP candidate for 2008. Ya know, this here Christine odonnell is the best thing for you all. You probably like the incumbent guy, but those incumbent GOPers need to be fired so us Tea Partiers can get to Washington DC and show them folks a little down home ass kicking. Yep, you betcha. Christine will take your needs and go to Washington and kick ass. We need the Tea Bagger to all stand up and get rid of the mainline GOPers now so we can get after them Dem O Crats. You betcha. Love Sarah.

    Robo-calls should be illegal. no one should have the right to intrude on any citizen's personal phone to advertise anything! Including Political candidates.

    Palin and DeMint represent what is wrong with the Tea Party movement. It is dominated and controlled by the same people who are destroying the republican party. It will take years to overcome the damage done by extremists like Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, Palin, DeMint, etc.
