Sarah Palin Convention Speech, 2008 (VIDEO)
Video of Sarah Palin's convention speech at the 2008 Republican convention, GOP 2008.. a very well delivered speech from Gov. Sarah Palin, although very negative, and insulting people who work in the community was an unfortunate thing for her to do. She was insulting many people in the GOP base who work in the community with their church.. strange thing to do.

In the most important speech of her life, Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin fired back Wednesday against the media and the "Washington elite" for raising questions about her personal and political background.
"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," Palin said in excerpts of her speech to the Republican convention, released in advance.
"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."
Most Americans had never heard of her a week ago, but Palin was taking centre stage at the party's convention in the hopes of earning their trust.
The 44-year-old Alaskan governor played up her small-town roots and her experience as mayor of Wasilla, a town with the population of 6,700.
