    Daily Kos: State of the Nation

    I guess this is what happens when people have too much time on their hands. DailyKos is trying to sway undecided voters by overloading search-engine results with negative articles about Republican candidates. Here are their instructions:



    I guess unemployment rates and the deficit aren't quite bad enough for the fine folks at DailyKos, so they want another few years of Democrats running everything. Makes perfect sense.

    Michael Savage was right: liberalism is a mental disorder.

    It makes me feel bad to see these types of 'tricks', but they are the bread and butter of political operatives in US politics and have been since Adams was elected vice-president.

    Put in "Barack Obama is a" in google. Some of the automatic suggestions:

    "Muslim, Communist, Mason, liar, moron, socialist, joke, narcissist, loser, traitor, terrorist, fascist, homosexual, lizard, racist, retard, robot, republican, satanist, puppet."

    What I get for "George W. Bush is a" in google:

    "Idiot"

    Other best response I get is best president ever.

    So if you're going to complain about googlebombing, I'd suggest you get a better house that's not built out of glass first.

    Somehow I believe if this was Republicans doing it to Democrats, it would get a NYT/AP/MSNBC/HuffPo mention, but since it's the other way around, who cares?

    I'm tired of liberals overreacting to shit when they shovel it just as much as anybody else.

    And xotoxi, if you're going to mention it happened to Kerry and play tit-for-tat, don't do so in an article that mentions it was done to Bush first.

    It's done to everyone.

    And no one cares except for you.

    Well, me and the NYT. And HuffPo. And Google. And MSNBC. And the AP News wire. And you, for responding to me.

    OOOoooohh.... you nailed it there pard... liberals are EXCEEDINGLY well adept at shoveling the shit. They're the biggest smart asses on every board I've ever been on.

    xo will tell you he's not a liberal, but if you pay attention to what he says on the board, you will see a significant slant towards liberalism.
