    Sarah Palin Comes Out Swinging

    In a speech delivered tonight to the Republican National Convention, Governor Sarah Palin accepted her nomination for the Vice Presidency. She makes history by becoming the first woman to get on the GOP ticket. She didn't just put on some make up and mosey on out there. She came out swinging!

    Here's some excerpts below.

    She takes on Obama's "experience" as a community organizer:

    "Before I became governor of the great state of Alaska, I was mayor of my hometown. And since our opponents in this presidential election seem to look down on that experience, let me explain to them what the job involves. I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a ‘community organizer,’ except that you have actual responsibilities."

    She takes on the media's abuse of her and her family:

    "I’m not a member of the permanent political establishment. And I’ve learned quickly, these past few days, that 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. But 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."

    She takes on the Leftists' roadblocks to energy security:

    "Our opponents say, again and again, that drilling will not solve all of America’s energy problems - as if we all didn’t know that already. But the fact that drilling won’t solve every problem is no excuse to do nothing at all. Starting in January, in a McCain-Palin administration, we’re going to lay more more nuclear plants...create jobs with clean coal...and move forward on solar, wind, geothermal, and other alternative sources. We need American energy resources, brought to you by American ingenuity, and produced by American workers."
