Apparently, Bargain Bin Barbie can’t even accept responsibility for her own lead foot. The half-term, half-wit former governor was busted speeding in her pickup truck in her home state of Alaska, and had an interesting excuse.
First off, it wasn’t her fault. The blame lies with Sammy Hagar. The musician’s hit song “I Can’t Drive 55” contributed to Palin’s lead foot, she claims. Palin told TMZ that, “I wasn’t speeding, I was qualifying.” Yay, NASCAR?
The failed Vice Presidential candidate‘s lack of regard for others’ safety is unsurprising, yet disconcerting–however, for someone who shows no concern for the LGBT community, poor people, African Americans, and others, it’s not exactly shocking that she would joke about driving nearly twenty miles over the speed limit.
Palin’s ticket will cost her a cool $154, which she says she will pay STAT. Let’s just hope that she’s better at paying her speeding tickets than she is at paying taxes or making abstinence-only education work.
