This photo provided Wednesday Nov. 17, 2010, by the Dane County Sheriff's Department shows Steven Cowan, 67, of Vermont, Wis. Cowan blasted his television set with a shotgun after watching Bristol Palin's "Dancing with the Stars" routine Monday night, saying he was fed up with politics and Palin wasn't a very good dancer, according to court documents. Authorities said Cowan then pointed the gun at his wife who escaped and called police. A SWAT team surrounded the couple's Vermont farmhouse and officers were able to talk Cowan out Tuesday after an all-night standoff. (AP Photo/Dane County Sheriff's Department)
