    Has everyone forgotten the “Santorum Google problem”?

    Has everyone forgotten the “Santorum Google problem”?

    It was the hot topic some weeks and months back, a joke since he was not a contender.

    But now that Rick Santorum is on the verge of either a victory or great showing in Iowa, some journalists are just frothing with joy at the prospect of the English-speaking world collectively doing a Google search for “Santorum,” via Pwire:

    Ryan Lizza is secretly rooting for this scenario: “Santorum wins Iowa and much of the English-speaking world Googles his name. Try it yourself, but please not at work or when children are in the room.”

    Forget the English-speaking world.  I can think of a few other worlds where it could be, shall we say, interesting.

    When an unintended search algorithm “issue” arose with regard to Michelle Obama, Google took steps to correct the problem.  Let’s see if it does so for “Santorum.”

    Correction: Only when I key in my sister’s name does anything show up. Somehow I don’t exist.

    Drowning Dan Savage’s work is one of the real upsides of Rick Santorum’s rise. Normal people just going about their business unintentionally smack sicko grand plans. Heh.

    I’ll have to do extra Santorum searches to add my two cents.

    Honestly, I doubt this is going to actually hurt Santorum. When one’s opposition has dropped to the level of shit-sex jokes, it reflects more strongly on the quality of one’s opposition, than it does on oneself.

    It is disgusting, but that is who we are are up against this cycle.
