    Pretty funny. Perry and the Secret Service toting heat.

    A Ruger .380 is not the pistol to use for dispatching snakes, let alone coyotes. He should switch to a Taurus judge revolver that is chambered in .410 (for snakes) and .45 (for coyotes).

    Great story. He's been comedy gold since he got in.

    I blame the rap videos. Those NWA people were running with guns in the video of "100 miles and running" and this young, impressionable governor of Texas thought that's how you go for a run. Will someone please think of the politicians.

    The funniest part is his explanation that he does it to protect against "wild animal attacks." Yeah, because we all know how many downtown Austin joggers get mauled by bears every year.

    Christ, I don't think I can take another dimwitted fake-macho Texas-cliche presidency.

    Screengrabbed from the Daily Show in reference to how "Texas" Rick Perry is.

    I didn't notice it until now, but what the hell is the background image of that?

    I'll say it, Rick Perry is a liar.

    I've lived in the country. If you got a dog with you, a coyote won't come with 1,000 feet of a human, unless it was sick or injured.

    I don't doubt he saw a coyote, but if you saw one, hollered at it and then charged. A coyote would have turned and ran. I don't even doubt that Perry squeezed off a round but it isn't the right kind of gun to kill such a small target that is also likely on the move.

    not that it matters, the security detail wasn't with him. Perry was jogging, by himself.

    I wish I knew how to post that picture of the owl that says ORLY

    What a great story to tell on the campaign trail, other than it reeks of complete and utter bullshit.

    Liar. That's Perry.

    Obviously you have never been jogging in the Hill Country, Jay.
