She deserves the 144, but what is the 10 dollar surcharge? Being conservative?

She also said the song "I Can't Drive 55" by Sammy Hagar was on the radio at the time of the offense.

I have never done that. Almost. Officer.

Ask any Leftists — she is now officially barred from running for any public office. Says so in the Constitution. Check the penumbra.

LOL, so, it’s national news when Sarah gets a ticket for speeding? Nobody has had more press attention than our divine Sarah. How I wish she would shake things up by forming a third party. We’re going to lose anyway, so why not go for the whole pie? Keep speeding Sarah.

I wonder if this will be covered on MSNBC?

Nah, they’ll be too busy covering the IRS scandals and Obamas shabby treatment of the Apollo 11 astronauts.

Right? Right?

Believe it or not, I went through Wasilla last week on our way to Denali. I even caught a glimpse of her house.

The roads are very straight and very long. I’m surprised she wasn’t going faster.

Why do speed limits even exist, other than to serve the Marxist Environmentalist agenda? Where I live, most people go 70 in a 55, and we are better for it; in fact, the people who refuse to speed up past 55 are driving hazards. You occasionally get the liberal teenager who thinks that 110 is an acceptable speed, but conservative drivers are better at determining reasonable speed than government is.

Around these parts, everyone speeds all the time.

Except the traffic is ordinarily backed up, and everyone is usually going far, far too slowly.

But when it’s not backed up, we move. I have to remember when I travel not everywhere is like this however.

The cops ordinarily don’t crack down on speeding. They’re more worried about drugs, and gang-bangers.

Oh my, good thing I never got pulled over at “speed”, cause it would have been darn near a triple over the limit.

Man, those were the days. Cheap gas, empty highways and lots of ponies under the hood. And Sammy hadn’t yet written his ode to the double nickel.

I met my (future) husband when I was 18...

I was speeding and he pulled me over. For me it was love at first sight, took him a little longer :)

I’d do it again in a second if I could...

I laughed at Sarah's "explanation". I've said similar things on the many times I've been stopped. Didn't work for me either.

By the way, journalism in this country never fails to disappoint. Check out how they spelled Alaska in the HEADLINE.

I have to give credit to your police. The police around my area are pretty decent as well, but I know lots of areas aren’t so fortunate. I’ve found that the worst police tend to be in rural/exurban blue counties; oddly enough, I’ve never been stopped in a large city.

Is your traffic backed up because of moronic drivers, or because of construction? Where I live, I have to say that idiotic government timing for construction takes most of the blame for the problems we face.

I live in Texas and I teach. Last year I had a girl that had moved here with her family from Wasilla about 5 years ago. The girl’s parents both knew Sarah Palin and spoke highly of her. That girl was the best student that I’ve ever had, and I told her parents so.

Big city. Traffic varies, sometimes it’s horrible, but it’s good off-hours.

I don’t hardly run into cops, which is fortunate. Around here you hardly run into one, but when you do things can get serious quick.

For the most part, I hand it to the officers around here.

“Why didn’t that cop let Alaska’s Favorite Daughter off with a wave & good wishes?”

She would only have to smile at me and I would be an incoherent pool of drool on the ground (as opposed to my normal state of just incoherent) - unable to write or speak - i.e. She would have got off!

I love her responses to situations, they are always apt. The article was not clear, however, on whether those were her responses to TMZ or what she said to the officer. I suspect it was the former and that she was most respectful with the patrolman.

Have the police figured out who tried to burn her church down yet? Or, are they too busy following her around to catch her doing something the everyone does.

[Except the traffic is ordinarily backed up, and everyone is usually going far, far too slowly.]

I think I know what you mean. Here in Hilo we call light sleepers people who pull up to a signal light and then fall asleep. Nobody in the waiting line honks their horns because the lead car (the sleeping one) just might be someone’s aunty.

She was cited for going 10 to 19 mph over the speed limit, which was was it, and BFD that’s like normal in California. And more to the point if Sarah is so over and irrelevant, why does a paper in Florida care?

Obama got a ticket in Hawaii as a teenager.

1. He got the ticket for driving without a license.

2. He told the policeman that he wanted to get a license, but his mother could not find his birth certificate for some reason.

3. Palin got a ticket for going 10 miles over the speed limit?

4. That was terribly wrong on her part. She should be tarred and feathered and forced to write 1000 times:''Obamacare is wonderful!"

5. Myself, I like to drive the speed limit. But when I drive, say, the 55 mph limit on the highway, people pass me by as if I was standing still. Oh, well.
