So why didn't she? He threatened to kill the governor's father. If I were the governor and we had a violent schmuckface like this threatening my father, I goddam guarantee you he would not have any job working for the state. Most likely they'd have to leave the state to escape my retribution. And I don't see how any reasonable person would consider that inappropriate.
By any rights, long ago Todd Palin and maybe this big, beefy, new, hockey-playing son-in-law Levi Johnston should have been waiting for the little bitch in some parking lot to talk sense into him with an aluminum baseball bat. He's got a good old fashioned Hank Jr attitude adjustment coming — at a minimum. Exactly what state authorities want to take the responsibility for prosecuting the governor's husband for beating down a bastard who threatened their family? Death threats against someone's father could cause somebody to go missing in these parts. A hard beatdown would seem like getting off easy. I'd expect Wooten to whisper sincerely at the end, "Thank you, sir, for your generosity."
Again, I dig the Palins, but they're a little derelict in their redneck family responsibility to fix the problem themselves. It's a small mark against the Palin brand name that this fool Wooten still has a job — and kneecaps.
