Sammy Hagar Promises to Pay Sarah Palin’s Next Speeding Ticket if She “Does Better”

Something on the lighter side of things to start the day. As readers may have heard, Sarah Palin was going a little fast the other day in her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska. When stopped by the police, she “blamed” rock legend Sammy Hagar [jokingly, of course] for the offense.

Governor Palin was stopped on July 16 driving her Toyota Tundra pickup with the license plate “LUVUSA” and was fined $154 for driving 63 mph in a 45 mph zone. She was driving home from an early morning Bikram hot yoga workout in Anchorage, according to reports. As it happens she was listening to Sammy Hagar’s mega-hit “I Can’t Drive 55” before she was stopped!

I was thinking, I wasn’t speeding, I was qualifying,” she said.

On Wednesday Sammy Hagar sent Governor Palin a tweet offering to pay her next speeding ticket, if she promises to “do better next time.” We assume that means breaking the century mark on the old speedometer!

As you know, Governor Palin loves speed. Besides going to the Daytona 500 a few years back, she’s taken a ride at the Indy 500 festival with racing legend Parnelli Jones and hung out in the pits during the race with team owner Sarah Fisher-Hartman:

    This is really cool. I’ll add ‘I Can’t Drive 55′ to my 80’s collection on my iPod. Hey, Sammy Hagar without a doubt, is in Sarah Palin’s corner. We Palinistas can use more rockers like Sammy Hagar. Keep Rockin’, Sarah.

      Hagar is one of the good guys! BTW, if you like tequila, either to sip or make ‘ritas with, give Sammy’s “Cabo Wabo” brand a try!

  2. Just a fun read – both Hagar and the Governor had some fun – too bad TMZ had to act so crude/rude and looked so small.
