RUSH: The McCain campaign yesterday announced that it was pulling out of Michigan. Fine! Leave Michigan. You liberals in Michigan, you…. People deserve who they vote for. We’ve done everything we can to try to bail Michigan out — not bailout, but save Michigan. If you want to vote for the same kind of people got you in the mess that you’re in, go right ahead. It’s your state. Do what you want. Sarah Palin heard about this, said, ‘We’re going to pull outta there.’ She didn’t even know. This is this morning in St. Louis.

PALIN: I read that this morning also, I fired off a quick e-mail and said, ‘Oh, come on! You know, do we have to? Do we have to call it there?’ Todd and I, we’d be happy to get to Michigan and walk through those plants of the car manufacturers. We’d be so happy to get to speak with the people there in Michigan who are hurtin’ because the economy is hurtin’. Whatever we can do, and whatever Todd and I can do in realizing what their challenges in that state are, as we can relate to them and connect with them and promise them that we won’t let ’em down in the administration. I want to get back to Michigan and I want to try!

RUSH: Holy cow! Hubba hubba, dooba dooba. Now, Ms. Palin, while you’re at it, could you also call Senator McCain, ’cause she had a great answer on global warming last night. Did you guys see this? This story cleared about six o’clock last night, when I was en route. I was in the sky, the wild blue yonder headed west to San Antonio. It’s a Reuters story: ‘McCain Eyes Potential Treasury Pick.’ I said, ‘Oh.’ So I read it. I’m not surprised he’s mentioning a bunch like Meg Whitman or Warren Buffett. Not surprised. But can I get to the last paragraph of this? That’s nothing. Warren Buffett’s nothing. ‘Asked if he would be a visible presence in international talks to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and replace the Kyoto Protocol, McCain, who has clashed with fellow Republicans over climate change, said he would do ‘whatever is necessary to try to move forward.’

‘He said he would involve former Vice President Al Gore in efforts to address the issue. ‘I would tap [Algore], I would tap people who have been involved in these issues for many years.’ McCain noted that he disagreed with the Nobel Peace Prize winner about nuclear energy but added, ‘I have great respect for Al Gore.” Ladies and gentlemen, please do not turn off your radio. Please don’t abandon me here. I should have given you ample warning if you hadn’t heard of this. That’s right. He’s Al Davis. He has no clue. He just literally has no idea. I do not think that Senator McCain is in the tank for Obama, but I would be hard-pressed to prove it. It’s very, very sad news, ladies and gentlemen. So while Sarah Palin is e-mailing the campaign after she reads that her own campaign’s pulling out of Michigan, maybe she could have a conversation with Senator McCain about this. Algore. I want to hear this Palin bite one more time. This is Sarah Palin wanting to save Michigan for the McCain campaign.

PALIN: I read that this morning also, I fired off a quick e-mail and said, ‘Oh, come on! You know, do we have to? Do we have to call it there?’ Todd and I, we’d be happy to get to Michigan and walk through those plants of the car manufacturers. We’d be so happy to get to speak with the people there in Michigan who are hurtin’ because the economy is hurtin’. Whatever we can do, and whatever Todd and I can do in realizing what their challenges in that state are, as we can relate to them and connect with them and promise them that we won’t let ’em down in the administration. I want to get back to Michigan and I want to try!

RUSH: That’s just as refreshing as it can be. I just love it.
