Unhinged Palin Hater

For those of you who aren’t big fans of tv, you may not realize that Bristol Palin is on Dancing with the Stars this season. She’s the only one left (and has been for some time) who isn’t a professional performer in some capacity. She’s endearing, cute, works hard, and is part of a family who many in this country feel have been unfairly targeted for criticism – even beyond political views. It’s not surprising that these many factors, along with the evidence that she’s really come a long way in her dancing skills, have earned her a place in the heart of many viewers.

One man in Wisconsin was apparently so pissed with the results of the last episode that he shot his television, aimed a shotgun at his own wife, and held police in a 15 hour standoff. I do believe that trying to kill your wife over a contestant in a television program is just a tad over the line we call unhinged. (Hat tip to JR Absher for the link.)

    Cowan went upstairs for about 20 minutes and returned, demanding his pistols, which had been taken by his daughter about a month ago for safety reasons. He was carrying a single-shot shotgun, which he loaded and fired into the television.

    Sounds like the daughter may have saved some lives.

    Funny… before election day I had the urge to shoot the TV anytime a Bryan Lentz “Florida Loophole” commercial came on.

    Then after considering how much the TV cost… the urge left me.
