Your Rick Perry fact of the day
From the Associated Press, reporting on a coyote shot by the governor of Texas:
Perry told The Associated Press on Tuesday he needed just one shot from the laser-sighted pistol he sometimes carries while jogging to take down a coyote that menaced his puppy during a February run near Austin.
Go ahead and laugh, but this is the kind of stuff that immediately endeared conservatives to Sarah Palin. It's the kind of stuff -- so much less important than his state sovereignty record, but important in building his image -- that has grassroots conservatives daydreaming about a Perry run for president in 2012, despite his many statements to the contrary.
