Man Shoots TV Because of Bristol Palin’s Lousy Dancing

By 11.17.10

Despite clomping around the stage like a horse in spandex, Bristol Palin — the only “Dancing with the Stars” contestant lazy and undisciplined enough to gain weight on the show — made the finals of “DWTS” when the talented and graceful Brandy was voted off. The injustice will be particularly bad news for Steven Cowan, the 66-year-old Wisconsin man who blasted a hole in his TV with a shotgun while watching Palin dance.

[Steven] Cowan, 66, allegedly became so enraged by Palin’s success that he actually fired a shotgun round into his television, triggering a 15-hour standoff with Wisconsin cops…

As Palin was dancing [Monday night], Cowan “jumped up and swore, saying something to the effect of, ‘The f*cking politics.’ Steven was upset that a political figure’s daughter was dancing on this particular show when Steven did not think that she was a good dancer,” the complaint notes.

He was sitting in the Dane County jail last night when Palin landed a spot in the “Dancing with the Stars” finals. However, a sheriff’s spokesperson told TSG that Cowan “currently does not have access to television.” [The Smoking Gun]

Cowan’s not alone in his feelings: the audience booed when Palin made the finals last night, and frankly I hope this sinks the entire GD franchise. Hey, you f*cking assh*les making decisions about TV: keep the politics out of my entertainment. That means f*ck your stupid Bristol Palin/The Situation abstinence PSA (video below), f*ck PBS for cutting Tina Fey’s Sarah Palin jokes, and f*ck Tina Fey for needing to tell political jokes. F*ck all your stupid politics. I don’t even like it when Nucky Thompson talks about the election on “Boardwalk Empire,” and that’s politics from 90 years ago. Everyone can just go get bent.
