Sarah Palin, it is now clear, is a feminist first and a “tea partyer” second.

Last week she endorsed businesswoman Carly Fiorina in the California Republican Senate primary, to the shock of tea party activists in that state, who tend to favor state Assemblyman Chuck DeVore. Friday evening she is endorsing Nikki Haley in the GOP primary election for governor of South Carolina.

Mitt Romney (R) and Jenny Sanford, ex-wife of Gov. Mark Sanford (R).
