--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Sad Little People Do Sad Little Things

It's turned into a decently-sized national story that a man in Vermont, Wisconsin shot his TV with a shotgun in a rage apparently enduced by Bristol Palin (Sarah Palin's daughter) winning on Dancing With the Stars.   Some conservatives suggest that it shows that the real "hate" is on the Left.   Well, maybe.  Or maybe just a sad little man who probably drank too much and got angry at his TV.   It happens.  Not sure there is a grand conclusion to draw.  

Anyway, here's Bristol dancing:

The words "pathetic loser" come to mind.   But let's be Christian... the guy had a bad night, and I'm pretty sure he regrets it now.   Let's hope he has a better Thanksgiving.
