Default White Powder in "fan mail" Sent to Bristol Palin

I wonder if this is a delayed response to the "shellacking" of Nov 2nd and they're just lashing out at a convenient target?

Emergency at 'Dancing' Over Powder Substance | TMZ.com

Quote:
Law enforcement sources tell us a powder substance was discovered by a member of the "Dancing" staff ... and sources connected to the show tell us a section of the studio containing "Dancing" offices was evacuated.

Multiple sources connected to the situation tell us the powder was contained in a piece of fan mail addressed to Bristol Palin.

The more they continue with these kind of vicious attacks, the more sympathy for the Palins and the more the Left looks like a bunch of absolute deranged maniacs.
What do they say? "No publicity is bad publicity............"

She probably sent it to herself

Yeah right, just like the guy who shot at his TV set - she must have done that too.

Wow, people will stop at nothing. Leave the girl alone. Not liking Sarah Palin (or in many cases, outright hatred of the woman) does not entitle you to pick on her daughter.

The left? Given that the article states they "think" it was meant for Bristol, and says nothing at all about political motivations, I'm not sure the phrase "deranged maniacs" is targeted at the correct group.

I have no idea what you're talking about.

TMZ isn't my primary news source.

How do you propose to know where it came from? There are at least a hundred suppositions that I can come up with off the top of my head. The Palin family has many people that dislike them right in their own home town. If a kid did it, does the kid have a political bias? You are really over the top.

It goes beyond hatred. This is venturing into the seriously mentally unstable category.

Well, gee. Since it was found in a piece of fan mail addresses to Bristol, I imagine that's who it was meant for.

That story was all over the news a few days ago. Best expand your sources.

Well, golly, that isn't what the article you posted says:

Cops and other emergency responders raced to CBS Television City studio late Friday after a white powder substance was discovered by a member of the "Dancing with the Stars" staff ... and sources tell us Bristol Palin may have been the intended target.
