Here's the transcript:

LIMBAUGH: The media is not holding him [Obama] accountable, the media is covering up for him, and that’s why there is so much enthusiasm for you, because you are the one in this campaign that is holding him to account and trying to explain who his is and who his alliances are with have been.  There were two stories today, one in the New York Times and the LA Times.   Both saying how wonderful you are as a speaker, the NY Times positing that you are the most forceful and dynamic speaker of all four candidates on the presidential circuit, then they said that your forcefulness, and your opinionatedness, and your charisma and your overwhelming ability to say what you mean is driving away moderates.  Now this is an attempt to get you to shut up.  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.

GOV. PALIN: Well ya, I guess that message is that they want me to sit down and shut up, but that’s not going to happen, I care too much about this great country.  Now yes, speaking of some of those associations and you are right, mainstream media is not holding Barack Obama accountable, lets talk quickly about ACORN and the unconscionable situation we are facing right now with voter fraud and given the ties between Obama and ACORN and the money that his campaign has sent them, and the job that he had with them in the past. Obama has a responsibility to rein in ACORN and prove that he is willing ot fight voter fraud, we called him on it…

LIMBAUGH: He’s not going to do that, he’s been paying for them.  He trained, he’s not going to rein them in, this is why you guys have to have the responsibility. Obama’s not going to do anything to harm himself.

GOV. PALIN: Well here’s the deal then.  We called him on it again today as we had almost a month ago where we reached out to Obama and we said that there has to be an effort to cooperate on potential voter fraud.  That was a month ago.  It wouldn’t surprise you of course we haven’t received a response from back then, but again calling him on it again today, and for shame if the mainstream media were to cover this one up.  There’s already been too much ignorance, ignoring of his associations with terrorist and with other in the past, but this ACORN stuff it is unconscionable.
