Palin on Laura Ingraham: 'I Don't See The Other Ticket Being Asked to Be Truthful and Give Details'

Gov. Sarah Palin parachuted into a phone interview on the Laura Ingraham show in the last minutes of the program today at about ten minutes to Noon eastern. She urged citizens (and by extension, the media) to demand answers from Barack Obama and Joe Biden about Bill Ayers, ACORN, and Obama's record of voting against protections for infants born alive after an unsuccessful abortion."I don't see the other ticket being asked to be truthful and give details," she said. She added that Obama's positions are "so far left," but they're being "packaged up to look pretty and mainstream, and they are not...Some in the mainstream media say we're taking off the gloves unfairly. No." Palin said Obama's abortion advocacy is "absolutely extreme," calling his votes for partial-birth abortion "very appalling." But she was stunned he would oppose protections for "a child born as a result of a botched abortion, for him or her to receive medical care." She said "I wish had more time to explain Barack Obama's position on this."Ingraham underlined how Obama said on the floor of the Illinois State Senate that the "pre-viable fetus" should not have constitutional rights, but also lobbied against any viable fetus who survived an abortion attempt.On Ayers, Palin said Obama hasn't told the "total truth" about his long-time association with an "unrepentant domestic terrorist." On ACORN, she said they are pushing voter fraud. "Doesn’t anybody have a conscience any more?" She urged , America to "wake up and ask thse questions."
