On election eve, Palin urges enthused GOP-ers to 'go with your gut'

DUBUQUE, IOWA -- Sarah Palin, in one of her final '08 campaign stops, urged more than 5,000 enthusiastic Republicans here on Election Eve to "go with your gut"
and vote against higher taxes and for John McCain.

The appeal from the Alaska governor and VP candidate came at a rally
full of patriotic messages. Hank Williams Jr. came out on stage with
Palin and sang the "Star Spangled Banner" and later belted out his
pro-McCain and Palin version of "Family Tradition."

Dressed in a red jacket and blue jeans, Palin thanked the crowd for
waiting so patiently, after taking the podium to shrieks of approval.

"We're near the end of a campaign trail that for John McCain has lasted
these very many, many months. Victory is where he is headed," Palin
predicted.

"A few hours from now, the time for choosing is near. Are you ready to
carry this state to victory? Are you ready to elect John McCain as
president of the United States? Are you ready to send us to Washington
to shake things up?" Palin asked the crowd, some of whom came over the
Mississippi River from Wisconsin.

Palin spoke to the crowd for a half hour before continuing the final
leg of her campaign tour. She stayed close to the stump speech, echoing
support for the "maverick" and "American hero" and attacking the
Democratic opponent, Sen. Barack Obama, "that we're only getting to
know in this eleventh hour."

"Do the math, or go with your gut. Obama is for bigger government and
higher taxes. See what his intentions are here. It's so phony," she
complained.
