Get out the ‘yote

Edgar's picture

Gov. Kristi Noem (RIGHT) admires Sen. Troy Heinert’s coyote skin coat.


With one social media post, Gov. Noem managed to rally South Dakotans — Republicans, Democrats and Independents alike — around a commonly held truism: the only good coyote around here is a dead one.

Standing with Mission Sen. Troy Heinert, who was wearing a full length fur coat, the Governor last Friday captioned “We need to kill more coyotes so everyone can have a coat like Sen. Heinert’s. How cool is this!?!”

Now from where I sit, the only thing wrong with the social media post is Kristi’s use of the exclamationquestion-exclamation mark trifecta that would make some of the editors I’ve worked for apoplectic. But if there is one thing you can count on the internet for, it’s a ridiculous degree of outrage from people who would seemingly have better things to do.
