Year in Review: Odd Wisconsin news


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- There was very little love in Wisconsin this year for wannabe dancer Bristol Palin and wannabe state lawmaker Ieshuh Griffin.

Their fates are two of the oddest tales of a year chock full of the bizarre, unusual and unexpected. And, no, Brett Favre's apparent love of texting doesn't count. He hasn't played for the Packers since 2007 and the alleged sexting happened when he was a New York Jet.

Palin's appearance on "Dancing With the Stars" became news in Wisconsin when a 67-year-old man shot his TV set because he was so displeased over it.

Griffin gained notoriety by wanting to describe her candidacy for the state Assembly as "NOT the whiteman's (expletive)."

Griffin wasn't elected. And Palin lost on the show.
