Get out the ‘yote

Edgar's picture

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

EDITOR’S COLUMN

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.
