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.
