Conservative leader and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin may have a lead foot, but she was all smiles when she was pulled over for a speeding ticket in Wasill last week driving herself in a Toyota Tundra pick-up truck. When asked by TMZ about the incident, she gave a classic nod to her NASCAR fans:
I wasn’t speeding, I was qualifying.
And she also made reference to the Sammy Hagar song “I Can’t Drive 55” while making fun of herself driving 63 mph in a 45 mph zone.
Well played, Sarah! This is a good reminder that if you get a $154 ticket, you might as well laugh about it.
