RedState's Tabitha Hale frowns at Palin's endorsement of Carly Fiorina over the "actual conservative," Chuck DeVore:

The initial reponse on Twitter and Facebook was shock from most of the [Tea Party] activists. I suppose many were convinced that Palin was still a “maverick”… which, if we’re being honest, hasn’t been true for a while. She’s becoming the establishment, for better or worse. I fail to see how endorsing Fiorina is “shaking things up”, as she states in her post.

Dan Riehl "suspect[s] she's now lost a large part of her original base." Her Facebook fans are livid.
