Dancing Bristol Palin Drives Man Insane

According to a CBS news report:

Brandy broke down in tears. Dancer Derek Hough was slackjawed. Judge Bruno Tonioli leapt to his feet and urged audience members to vote.

But the most violent reaction of all to Tuesday night's "Dancing With the Stars" results show came from a 67-year-old Wisconsin man, so enraged over Bristol Palin's performance that he blasted his TV with a shotgun, leading to an overnight standoff with a SWAT team.

Mr. Cowan, you are obviously having a crisis of some sort, but The Range has to agree with your criticism, and understands what drove you to take a pistol to your TV. Cowan told police he felt Bristol wasn't a good dancer and was only kept on the show because of her famous mother.
