people on November 4th, they’re going to have the choice. You can either support the ticket that will support policies to create jobs — we do that by reducing taxes and reining in government growth and allowing our country to be energy independent — or you choose the ticket that’s going to kill jobs by increasing taxes, just like Barack Obama is purporting today....
On November 4th, we’re going to set a course for the future of our great country. We’re going to go one direction or the other, and you understand that our ticket, what we’re all about is pro-growth,(my emphasis since it is amazing how few politicians mention that in a specific way) pro-private sector. We’re tax cuts. We’re reining in government. We’re proponents of the culture of life that would make America better off. We’re adamant about winning the wars with the strongest military in the world. All those things that we stand for that I think are so clearly articulated with our message, with the plan that’s been expressed, we can go that direction or we can go in the complete opposite direction of all those aforementioned goals that we have in mind if you choose the other ticket.
RUSH: This is an attempt by the media to make you stop being who you are. What it means is, they’re really worried about the effectiveness that you have.
GOVERNOR PALIN: Well, yeah, I guess that message is they do want me to sit down and shut up. But that’s not going to happen. I care too much about this great country
RUSH: I don’t mean to always harp on the media here because everybody does this, but this is a true observation here. If it weren’t for the media covering up for Obama and presenting him as a person he’s not, he would be at 30% in the polls. Your odds, therefore, are formidable
GOVERNOR PALIN: Oh, isn’t that something? The double standards are something else. But, you know what? If my skin isn’t thick enough to take those petty immature shots that are coming from some of them on the other side, then I have no business thinking that I could serve as vice president. And keeping it in perspective, too, Rush when you consider the true shots that actually hurt people across America — those who are worried about losing their homes, their jobs; maybe their kid or their spouse is over in the war zone, they’re worried about that person’s safety — those are the true shots that really matter...
RUSH: They’re standing in the rain for two hours to get in to see you after driving an hour and a half to get there, and that’s because you have reenergized them.
GOVERNOR PALIN: Well, I love ‘em and we’re not going to let ‘em down. I promise you, Rush. We’re not going to let you down.

Limbaugh's opinion of now "When you have so many establishment types – inside-the-Beltway, elite, establishment types (Republican, Democrat, it doesn’t matter) – just so eager to destroy this woman, it means they’re still scared to death of her. And that, to me, is the bottom line."
