In the tank?

I was listening to NPR this morning when I heard the "conservative" commentator Juan Williams describe Troopergate as "Palin trying to get her brother in law fired after some sort of spat with Palin's sister."

Let's review the facts of WHY Palin's family wanted he guy fired:
“Of course this issue came up in the vetting, and this is what we discovered,” the source said. “The man who was fired has said on the record that he was never pressured by the governor or the governor’s husband on the issue of firing Trooper Wooten. The governor had a vision for how she wanted that department to be run. The commissioner had a different vision.”

“The reason that members of the Palin family were having discussions with the head of the state police about this state trooper, who was her ex-brother-in-law, was because he had made threats against the family. He threatened to kill the governor's daughter, her father, and her sister. He tasered her 11-year-old stepson. And that is why the Palin family was concerned about this trooper.”

"Some sort of spat." I'd like Williams to try "some sort of spat" and taser my kid. "Spat" would be the sound of his *ss hitting the ground.
