Oh those wacky Rethugs. Talking Points Memo, by way of the Austin American-Statesman (if Texas secedes, can we please keep Austin?), reports that the campaign of Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, who is primarying incumbent Texas Gov. Rick “Secession Now” Perry, “included hidden phrases including “rick perry gay” in order to draw hits to its website.
In a candidate for Best Dissembling Statement of the Year:
“We did not know these offensive word associations were being searched for by hundreds of thousands of Texans everyday nor do we condone the computer-generated existence on our Web site,” Hutchison spokesman Jeff Sadosky told the Austin American-Statesman.
Oh. Then there must be an alternate explanation for why the ‘offensive word associations’ were on the site in the first place. Please allow ‘bulo to assist spokesman Sadosky:
“The seven monkeys hired for the express purpose of transcribing ‘Hamlet’ from the Olde English overstepped their bounds and have been terminated. It is my understanding that they have found gainful employment at a Texas free-market think-tank.”
Now, that wasn’t so hard, was it?
