In her speech last night at the Republican National Convention, Sarah Palin, 44, claimed her historic place on the Republican ticket and mocked Barack Obama's experience and promise of change.
"In politics, there are some candidates who use change to promote their careers," she said in a barbed reference to Obama's campaign theme. "And then there are those, like John McCain, who use their careers to promote change."
In another unmistakable jab at Obama's stint as a community organizer, Palin traced her career as mayor of Wasilla, Alaska to governor of her state. "I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a 'community organizer,' except that you have actual responsibilities."
Palin also made it a point to address the news media that have questioned her background and her family, including her 17-year-old unmarried, pregnant daughter. "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."
