Even if you are not a fan of Dancing With The Stars you have probably been hearing about how bad Bristol Palin dances, and how she manages to stay on the show. According to several reports, Sarah Palin’s fans, the Tea Party members, found a flow in the show’s voting system and with hard work, they keep voting for Sarah’s daughter despite her uncoordinated moves. Yesterday she reached the finals when the show eliminated singer Brandy. Some show fans are getting really mad about Bristol’s dancing skills to the point that they are doing stuff that might send them to jail.

A 67-year-old rural Wisconsin man enraged over Bristol Palin’s lack of skill on “Dancing with the Stars” blasted his television with a shotgun, leading to an overnight standoff with a SWAT team, according to the AP.

 Steven N. Cowan shot his TV after Bristol Palin finished her routine. Apparently he was upset and offended by Sarah Palin’s daughter’s performance. He then turned the gun on his wife, who ran out and escaped. SWAT officers surrounded the home and talked Cowan out Tuesday morning. According to his wife, Cowan had been drinking before he sat down to watch “Dancing with the Stars”. Apparently he suffers from bipolar disorder. He was charged Tuesday with second-degree reckless endangerment, and could be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

    I know exactly how Mr. Cowan felt — I could’ve easily shot my television set, too!

    I think Palin can not dance. That is not fair to the ones that can. I don’t care for Brandy myself but she could dance. This has turned out to be a popular vote. She has no talent. A lot of people will stop watching DWTS if she or the black kid wins. They have voted off a lot of good dancers, better than Palin and the black boy. If this is going to happen you need to change the rules and let the judges do it. They seem more fair to everyone. If she wins it is not fair to the people who have talent. Some of the have been voted off already. There is no competion in the last three.Derek and Jennifer are the best, if they don’t win I no longer watch. I think you have made a very mistake. Your show will go down in the ratings.

      Brenda, I assume English is not your first language? The only thing that scores lower than Bristol’s dancing, is your intelligence.
