Lead foot: Palin gets speeding ticket

(CNN) - Slow down, Sarah, slow down.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was ticketed last week in her hometown of Wasilla, where she once served as mayor, for going 10-19 mph over the speed limit. According to a court docket reviewed by CNN, she received a $154 ticket.

"I wasn't speeding, I was qualifying," Palin told TMZ.

She added that she was listening to Sammy Hagar's "I Can't Drive 55" on the radio when it happened. She plans on paying the fine.

A Palin aide had no further comment.

    Palin drives faster than she thinks. Her mouth moves 20 -30 mph over the speed limit. Palin was just moose hunting with her car again.

    If this was one of Palin's democrat opponents with a speeding ticket, she would be all over them. She is a hypocrite.

    So Sarah Palin in her hometown going a little bit over the speed limit and paying the fine is more of a reportable controversy than anything going on with the laughable shadiness of the IRS? Such an adorable little news organization with no agenda at all.

    Hey CNN,
    Suggestion-if there are no more than 3-5 sentences, it's not news. Leave that info for an entertainment magazine.
