Maybe you heard it here first... 

...and then, maybe you didn't. But here's the scoop:

Texas Republican Governor Rick Perry is in the midst of an internet-driven rumor mill pertaining to an alleged affair he's been having.

With a MAN.

With his OWN SECRETARY OF STATE--fellow Republican GEOFF CONNOR.

These are the men Texans chose to lead their state after Bush assumed the Presidency. It this is true, this is BIG. It touches national politics in some rather invisible ways, but it's there. DeLay was giving Perry orders and basically directing the re-districting of Texas over Perry's shoulder; Bush's base is in Texas, as well as a helluva lot of Bush's contributors.

It may or may not be an advantage for the Dems in Texas; they just might pick another Bush Lackey for their governor.

But this sure doesn't help them.

Two differences between this rumor and the Kerry affairs: This Perry rumor has stayed out of the "real" media until confirmed, which it looks like might be imminent; and the Perry rumor is probably TRUE.
