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.

    Don't they know who she is? I guess not, or they would have fined her $300.
    I love her glib responses; she demonstrates so much HIP (Half-witted Intellectual Privation).

    Wonder what she would have said if it was Hillary Clinton. Is Sarah smart enough to have a drivers license ??

    Speed kills. It's a sad time we live in where useless trash like Palin get press time to make ignorant remarks.

    Oh look, another conservative taking zero responsibility for their actions and putting the blame on others.

    Sarah and the rest of the conser crowd have no mercy on the less fortunate. Perhaps the latter will remember her and they in the voting booth.

    Brainless is as brainless does. Of course all Republicans who drive big trucks don't believe speed limits apply to them anymore than they believe global warming will cause parts of the country to go up in flames while other parts flood and go under water at high tide.

    Well. At least she is not too lazy to drive herself.. AND takes the blame for what she did wrong. Quite lacking in another woman I can think of...!

    "It's Obama's fault I was speeding! You must be a Libtard! No more of this socialism police stuff! Heck, I shoot moose from helicopters flying faster speeds than that! Did I mention it's Obama's fault?"

    Palin sound so witty. The only problem is Palin has paid staff that cleverly come up with intelligent one liners. Left to her own devices, Palin has shown a propensity for not being able to string 10 words together, to form a coherent sentence.

    I wonder if she'd have been quite so light hearted if it had been one of the Obama's or their daughter caught speeding...speed kills..and most of the time it kills 'others'.

    Wow! Still talking about her? There are some CNN producers that need to be fired. Oh wait, let's spend 10 days on Flight 370 when the earth stopped spinning.

    Now if she was still Mayor she would demand that the ticketing officer be fired for daring to write her a ticket! LOL
