Palin Calls In To Chat With Rush

"Dittos from Scanton," is how Alaska Governor Sarah Palin kicked off her telephone interview on the Rush Limbaugh radio show this afternoon as she called in before a scheduled rally in Pennsylvania. Palin's cell phone cut out on occasion and at one point dropped out altogether but she called back to conclude her chat with the very effusive radio host who has been one of her biggest supporters since she was chosen by John McCain to be his running mate.

Palin discussed the voter registration controversies surround ACORN, media treatment and her aggressiveness on the campaign trail. Here's a snippet from Palin from that part of the conversation:

"I've got nothing to lose in this and America has everything to gain by understanding the differences, the contrasts here, between Obama and McCain. So, I'm going out there and simply speaking. So be it that I'm a simple talker, but I'm just going out there and letting people know the differences and how absolutely paramount it is that voters are paying attention and that voters are understanding candidates' records, their associations, their plans for the future instead of being kind of wrapped up into all this rhetoric of Obama's and buying into it and not holding him accountable for the things that he's done, for the things that he's said, his associates and where he wants to take America."
