The self-described "hockey mom" has come out slashing. Alaska Governor Sarah Palin told delegates at the Republican National Convention that she's an outsider ready to join John McCain in helping to bring real change to Washington.

But Palin also unleashed a smiling attack on Barack Obama. She accused him of wanting to forfeit the victory in Iraq that "is finally in sight." Palin said that "Al-Qaida terrorists" want to cause
"catastrophic harm on America," and that Obama is "worried that someone won't read them their rights."

Palin was joined after the speech by her family and John McCain. He asked roaring delegates, "Don't you think we made the right choice" for vice president?
