This story is out of Austin, but, hey, we vote for the governor in San Antonio as well, so this is equally strange here.

AUSTIN, Texas - A Web site for U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison contained hidden phrases including "rick perry gay."...
Hutchison spokesman Jeff Sadosky said Hutchison's campaign was not condoning those words and did not know thousands of people would be searching for them. He said they would be removed from the site.
Campaign officials said they bought a tool that generates the phrases to find out the most frequent Web searches using the two gubernatorial candidates' names.
Here are the hidden phrases that were on Hutchison's website. Looks like a pretty thorough job of including just about every conceivable search string that might be related to the gubernatorial race. In fact, here's one grouping that seems focused on including just about every Texan alive:
