    Actually, it's one single premise:

    Nobody, including the barking moonbats at Daily Kooks, can find too much to say in favor of their favored candidates.

    Not true. A browse through the Netroots list demonstrates that you just made that up.

    Anyone here recall how the term "freeping" entered the vocabulary?

    Who cares? Is this supposed to fill us with "outrage"? If so, it fails...

    I don't believe googlebombing is as easy as it was in the old days. There are more pages, more links, and Google adjusts its SEOs to prevent this kind of thing. If you are obviously googlebombing, your SEO will sink like a rock.

    This will bounce back on Kos very hard.

    SEO adjustments still aren't proactive, they're reactive. It might be tough to build another "miserable failure" google bomb, but it won't effect what Chris Bowers is suggesting. Do you really think that google is going to adjust their primary algorithms when the various candidate links go to multiple MSM sites?

    It's not just Google. Every search engine wants to be as close to real time as possible. Here's an interesting read:

    I'm only going by the words of the release of Daily Kooks, not Netroots.

    Try again.
