Earlier today, Austin American-Statesman reporter Gardner Selby posted some interesting information he found on the campaign Web site for U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. Apparently, the phrase "Rick Perry gay" was among a bunch of "hidden phrases" on the site. Take a look at Selby's blog post for a full accounting from the campaign of how the phrases got there. To make a long story short, the campaign said the phrases weren't there intentionally and would be removed.
Also today, Gov. Rick Perry's campaign put out this video making fun of Hutchison for the confusion she created in the media with her seemingly opposing statements about her impending resignation from the U.S. Senate.
It's not even August. We've got about seven more months for this to get really heated.
