Sarah Palin Gets A Speeding Ticket

TMZ reports that Sarah Palin was ticketed for speeding last week:

Sarah Palin may be conservative, but her driving is unabashedly radical … giving TMZ an epic rationalization for speeding in her pick up truck in Alaska.

"I wasn’t speeding, I was qualifying", the longtime racing enthusiast explained.

She jokingly placed the blame on rocker Sammy Hagar, saying "I Can’t Drive 55″ was playing on the radio just as she was pulled over.

While most political leaders of her stature typically have a chauffeur to cart them around, the Governor was as usual, under her own power behind the wheel of her full-size pick-up truck. The citation was reportedly for going 62 in a 45 mph zone while driving in her hometown of Wasilla.

Palin indicated she would be paying off the citation straight away.

    Well! Imagine THAT! Sarah Palin is a human being just like the rest of us! WHODATHUNKIT!!

    It is a well known fact that Sammy Hagar is quite a troublemaker, even when he is in Cabo, Mexico and not Wasilla!

    • Polarbearpapa

      The police in Wasilla have been especially diligent this summer……I have been trying to keep my "need for speed" inclinations in check……

      • palmerguy

        They can make a lot of money by Lowes at the speed change.

        • Polarbearpapa

          Yes they do… I got popped there myself…

      • Jthom26837

        Hey, do the Wasilla, AK Police have any Florida State ‘Seminoles’ Football tickets?/sarc :-)
        I Stand with Sarah Palin!!!

  • bunny06

    A TOYOTA i am so disappointed in her. :(

    • qtdb7

      Did you know STUPID democrats/liberals California lost TOYOTA to CONSERVATIVE Texas? That means STUPID California LOST THOUSANDS of JOBS to CONSERVATIVE Texas.

    • PhilTan

      No worries. It used to be all the economic benefit, or the majority of it on foreign cars was primarily gained by the manufacturer and if foreign then to a foreign entity. Most of these , as I understand it , are actually built in this country so it contributes to the our economy. Job’s etc. That being said, I’d prefer to see her in a Ford. If she was driving a GM product, then I’d be disappointed. LOL.

      • Perfectly Frank

        Or better still, in a RAM with a HEMI…..!!!

  • bunny06

    Put her in the go daddy car she would be better than Danicant. GO #48!

    • palmerguy

      Watch it, those are my two favorite girls.

      • bunny06

        Actually i like them both too! Been a DIE HARD Sarah fan since she was announced as VP. Do you know how hard it is to defend her to a bunch of libs!!!

        • section9

          Sorry, but Danica’s been a bit of a disappointment. She should have paid her dues in the Nationwide Series before going up to Sprint Cup. She’d have earned a lot more respect from the other drivers had she done that.

          • bunny06

            I agree but Nascar is desperate for fans to fill the race tracks. But Danica is not it. I agree not ready for Sprint Cup. She was very good in Indy. I think she had a top 5 at the Indy 500.

            • PhilipJames

              Okay… if you are going to diss Danica, at least get your facts right. Danica, in her 7 years in IndyCar, racing against two racing teams with 4 drivers that won over 80% of the races, and against 28 – 30 other male drivers, was 12th the first year, then 9th, 7th, 6th, 5th, 10th & 10th in points each year after. Last two years Michael Andretti was running the three car team and the entire team was crap…. which is why she was 10th for each of the last two years. AND, in the 7 times she raced in the Indy 500, she was 4th, 8th, 8th, DNF because she was crashed out by Ryan Briscoe, 3rd, 6th and 10th…. while racing against 32 other drivers.

              Then when Danica went to NASCAR, she was always racing against guys who had years and years of stock car racing experience and she had to learn from scratch.
              When you consider that Danica is one of, if not the least experienced Sprint Cup driver out there, she is doing great in Sprint Cup and I predict that in 2015 she will win at least one race if not more. When you consider she is racing against 42 other male drivers with many more years of experience in stock cars, I don’t know how anyone can say Danica is not successful.
              Its like Sarah Palin… she is not an elected official right now but is one of the most influential politicians in the US.
              Danica Patrick is the best female stock car driver in the world right now….. pure and simple. If there is a better one, where is she?

              • bunny06

                I love Nascar #48 fan but i think it would be great if she did well i do think she should have stuck to Nationwide for a few yrs. She has a great ride and a sponsor so as long as Go Daddy sponsors her she is not going anywhere. Sponsors are hard to come by. If she did well it would be a great story. She has had her moments no doubt. 7th place finish in Kansas this yr and a 12th place finish at Martinsville las yr after being several laps down. GO DANICA

              • OLDIRON

                Thx for the stats , —- pretty much nailed it with " Danica Patrick is the best female stock car driver in the world right now " ——- Yep !

        • erik thorne

          Yeah it must be hard trying to explain her lying all the time. Along with her word salad ramblings of issues she does not understand.

          • Laddie_Blah_Blah

            She has not lied about anything, any time. What bothers you is that she insists on telling the truth, like QE2 would lead to higher inflation, and giving Putin a pass on Georgia would encourage him to invade Ukraine.

            Can you itemize one thing, on the other hand, that the empty suit behind the curtain has been honest about? Just one?

  • bunny06

    Hey if that is all she does we are ok. Its not like she is hiding her birth cert. HA HA

    • erik thorne

      Just Trigs.

      • Jeff Roland

        moron says what?

  • bunny06

    Looks like nobamacare is being taken apart piece by piece. No thanks to John Roberts.

    • hrandym

      John Roberts is a horse’s . . . oops! My apology to any horses out there.

  • Quiet_Righty

    The cop just wanted her autograph. Move on now. ;-)

    • hrandym

      Good point. I probably would have done the same, but only give her a warning for her autograph.

  • Michael_from_Michigan

    Dear Palin Faithful:
    At least Sarah was not driving as she was talking on her cell phone, putting on lipstick while trying to drink coffee and avoiding the moose standing in her lane of traffic! :)
    When she is president, the motorcade will not be traveling fast enough for her to get to where she has to go (Congress/White House) in order to get things done for the American People!
    Palin today, Palin Tomorrow, Palin 2016

    • carolhaka

      I’m sure she will use teleconferencing to save money! Air Force One may be up on eBay!

  • Victoria Richardson

    Countless people have gotten speeding tickets. This just makes her look human and normal like the rest of us.

  • Tom Ferriday

    Obama heavily smoked pot, drank, and snorted cocaine (and most likely sold it) in high school and beyond, yet Sarah getting a speeding ticket is news?

  • Eastwood Ravine

    I would rather be on the road with Sarah Palin speeding down the interstate in her truck, than stuck on the same road with Obama driving a sub-compact 10 or more miles *under* the speed limit.

    The people way under the speed limit are, in my opinion, the real dangers on the road.

    • LINER011

      I agree, slow ‘lo-info’ drivers are more of a hazard.

      This incident just makes Palin look more normal. And by contrast, make Hillary look more out of touch.

  • DocBarry1

    You go girl

  • Bogdan51

    Looks like Sarah is gaining speed…

  • qtdb7

    Is this a COINCIDENCE?

    D.C. Police Once Gave the President a Speeding Ticket
    Ulysses S. Grant

    • hrandym

      Let’s hope it has been done again.

  • Keith M

    Who cares! Sarah Palin is human and she got a speeding ticket.

    • hrandym

      And she handled it the way I would have predicted. Up front, accepting responsibility, no excuses. I’m so proud of her!

      • Keith M

        Yep! It looks like TMZ wanted to get something started. But that is how liberals are.

  • CliffNZ

    The only ticket I care about Sarah Palin getting is one that leads to the White house!

    • misterlogic0013

      over qualified ..

  • ClaudeFlesh

    Sarah Palin is the Coolest Woman on the Planet . Sarah Palin for President 2016

  • PhilTan

    My real issue here is I’d prefer she didn’t drive at all. Have one of the kids or Sarapac people drive for her. She is fully entitled to drive but my real fear is some liberal activist will throw his or herself up against the car while she’s driving just to make some big story out of it. You know, walk up at a stop sign and "get bumped " . Scream for an ambulance etc. I just hate when she has any exposure like that. The left are a bunch of sick puppies. I put nothing past them. Hell they rented the house next door just to write a dam’n book.

    • hrandym

      I wish this article had not been published. Sarah is a target of the Left, and I believe we all know, or at least suspect, that they are as dangerous as the Mob, perhaps even more so. I understand her independence and strength of character, and appreciate her immensely, but I do not want her hurt, I want her to be President. I fear her being exposed so to forces of the Left, but I recognize she is fearless. And if she does run for President, we need to be sure she is well protected. She needs to be well protected NOW. I’d volunteer for protection, but I’m not worth a ‘hoot’ anymore. All I can do these days is vote, and that I will.

      • JanuarysRose

        Great post.

    • colint

      She will not have a chauffeur. She goes out at unpredictable times. If her car is known, I would have some concern about some one doing something to it when parked.

  • PhilTan

    Although part of Sarah’s charm is that she has things like this happen . She’s not an elitist. She’s like us and that is so appealing.
    Seems to me I recall a certain candidate leaving a parking ticket unpaid for many many years in Cambridge until he decided to run for President in ’08. Hmmm.

  • cudaforever

    I always said Sarah and I had a lot in common. Add this to the list :)

    GO SARAH GO !!

  • James Crawford

    My only questions are;

    Is Sarah’s pickup a gas or diesel and is it manual transmission or a slush box?
