Palin Blasts Media in RNC Address
Gov. Sarah Palin addressed the RNC last night -- and the self-proclaimed hockey mom came out swinging! Palin discussed her small town upbringing, while blasting the media for focusing their attention on her 17-year-old daughter Bristol's pregnancy.
"If you're not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone," Palin stated. "Here's a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators -- I'm not going to Washington to seek their good opinion. I'm going to Washington to serve the people of this country."
The Alaska governor also slammed Obama's criticisms that she wasn't experienced enough to lead -- while taking a swipe at Barack's past as a community organizer. "I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a 'community organizer,' except that you have actual responsibilities." Sarah also jabbed at Obama's "change" theme while praising running mate McCain, saying, "In politics, there are some candidates who use change to promote their careers, and then there are those, like John McCain, who use their careers to promote change."
GOP nominee John McCain is scheduled to address the Republican convention tonight.
