(Newser) – Paul Ryan now has a Secret Service code name: "Bowhunter." GQ revealed that little nugget today, pointing out that the name makes sense, since Ryan is indeed an avid archer and hunter—he'll even grace the cover of next month's Deer and Deer Hunting magazine. Of course, given that Mitt Romney's codename is "Javelin," the two might just be trying to send a message, namely, If the US ever needs to defend itself with primitive weaponry, we've got this. Ryan's wife, Janna, incidentally, has the much less violent codename "Buttercup."
