To read the Politico article, which is entitled “Sarah Palin’s tour a rolling menace,” you’d think the tour is being directed by Jerry Bruckheimer.

This could even be the script for the preview of “Speed 3: Chasing Palin” — provided Sandra Bullock has one more sequel in her. Here are just a few highlights from the action-packed article:

They speed. They run red lights and stop signs. They make last-second lane changes to get off the highway, sometimes without signaling.

So do the reporters following them.

Journalists in the caravan trailing her “One Nation” tour bus describe the experience as harrowing, a rolling menace careening up the East Coast in hot pursuit of the former Alaska governor who declined to provide any advance itinerary of her tour over six days on the road.

Palin’s two-SUV caravan traveled at 52 miles per hour in a 35 mph zone as it peeled away from the hosts’ neighborhood. Both cars blew through a stop sign about a mile later. They did 70 mph in a 55 mph zone on I-95 — and then, after they got off, without signaling, flew right past a flashing sign informing them they were going 45 mph in a 35 mph zone.

It takes someone like Sarah Palin to get the media to make following a bus sound like Rollerball.

Who knows how melodramatic these stories will sound a few weeks more into Sarah’s lawless rampage across the countryside.
