SCRANTON, Pennsylvania (CNN) – Though her cell phone service repeatedly dropped during her call-in, Sarah Palin made her first appearance on the Rush Limbaugh show on Tuesday, just minutes before taking the stage at a rally in Scranton.
Watch: Palin calls in to Limbaugh's show
In an unusual moment, Limbaugh asked Palin if she had thought about her "political future beyond this campaign." The vice presidential nominee told the conservative talker and his millions of listeners: “That’s a good question.” But she then quickly re-assured the radio host that her focus was on winning the White House with John McCain on November 4.
“No, because I am thinking about November 4, and I am just so absolutely passionate about the job that we have in front of us from now to November 4,” she said.
For the first time, Palin directly addressed the controversy surrounding ACORN’s voter registration operation, and suggested that the media is trying to cover up the story, despite the fact that dozens of national news outlets are investigating the community organization and Obama’s ties to the group.
“Let’s talk quickly about ACORN and the unconscionable situation that we are facing right now with voter fraud, given the ties between Obama and ACORN and the money his campaign has sent them,” Palin told Limbaugh. “Obama has a responsibility to reign in ACORN and prove that he is willing to fight voter fraud. For shame if the mainstream media were to cover this one up.”
Her future is to return to Alaska and answer the awaiting civil suit. Her political career has run it's course. Her 15 minutes of fame are just about over.
Palin please stop you lies..
My daughter in the army called me to ask, " Who was that stupid Bimbo t that mccain has running for vp with him....... She was laughing so hard when I directed her attention to SNL.
The military will not stand for this woman to ever command them.
Somebody shut this dope up.... You wanna talk voter fraud, Barbie? Talk about the GOP in Florida in 2000 and Ohio in 2004...
When will the people of Alaska recall this dope from her job as governor? THAT's her political future....
She is a very dim bulb – I'm changing her name to Sarah 20 watt.
Her political future? About two years left as Alaska governor, then who knows?
Palin how about toopergate????????????
THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION", DIDN'T SHE SAY THOSE SAME WORDS IN THE KATIE COURIC INTERVIEWED BUT LATER BLAMED KATIE WHEN SHE COULDN'T COME UP WITH AN ANSWER...
MY GOD, this lady is clueless and down right a disgrace to women every where.
I cannot begin to tell you how tired I am of this woman and all she stands for and all those shallow people who think an Alaskan governess has what it takes to be a VP.
Dumpster, sweet pea.
Three more weeks and Gov. Pinhead goes back to Alaska and, hopefully, oblivion.
If Palin's this overwrought over ACORN, we better get to digging up the election fraud story she's trying to bury. She never says anything without a purpose. If she's accusing someone else of wrongdoing, she's usually speaking from experience.
Note to Sarah, Obama already said he doesn't need ACORN's help. SO now what? Go back to Alaska where it seems like you are just like the other governors there. Pretty funny how a Republican dominated congress there and a basically Republican dominated investigation nailed you for ethics violation.
Yes, Governor Palin, you will be thinking about November 4th after you and McCain lose this election. You are not qualified for V.P. You have problems of your own in Alaska. Do you think that most Americans are dumb enough to vote for another 4 years of the same? NO WAY!!!! Just please shut up and go home. Your political career is almost over. This Democrat is voting for "that one". OBAMA/BIDEN 08!!!!!!!!!!
Dee you must be from the south because when I read your comment, I thought that's something my mom would say about someone so ignorant. I love that comment.
Also, talking about being honest and upfront Palin has some nerve given the abuse of power she was found guilty of. She and Limbaugh are a perfect pair.
As Joe Biden would say, God love her but she's totally unqualified for the job.
For Shame, indeed.
Statements like "I have done nothing wrong in firing my cabinet member" may be true, but the findings of violating ethics for trying to fire your brother-in-law is still a fact.
Telling the truth about a different fact does not erase the lie for another.
Oh Please! This lady has absolutely nothing to bring to the table.
The Obama campaign is doing the right thing by not even acknowledging her.
someone please tell her to SHUT UP
Sarah Palin is talking and she can't shut up!
Republicans paid and or planted low-income folks to submit the flase voter registrations. They were looking for a GOTCHA! Guess what GOP, we GOTCHA!
She is so annoying!!
I think the poll in Alaska is getting closer. I would love Alaska to go blue. And I hope her constituents ask for her resignation.
I just hope she will go back to Alaska and shut up...we need real women that are smart and know answers to questions...cuz she is pathetic!!!
My question for Ms. Sarah Palin is this, "With evidence showing you have experienced an abuse of power in Alaska, ethics violations, and have referred to Obama as a terrorist along with the other horrifying accusations you and the GOP campaign are supporting, how on this earth would you ever expect to gain the trust and votes of the American people with all of the deceit you have shown?"
Anything posed to Palin is "A good question"
We await the Good Answer

the acorn fraud isn't all
the acorn fraud isn't all Dem's problem! My cousin in Ohio says Republicans poseing as Dem's are getting acorn regestry papers and even signing up dead people to make it look like Dem's are to blame for the fraud! Remember Rush on the radio telling Repug to sign up for Dem for caucus to get Hillary in? Well there you have it again. It might work to give Mccain a come back!
