Politican confused by the googles

"I'll box the gay out of ya"

Ever google your own name? I do it all the time, there are a couple other Kevin Newburn's out there and I like knowing that my web presence dominates them. Of course I have the luxury of having a relatively unique name, it's easily googlable.

Also my name isn't synonymous with a gross byproduct of doin' it sodom style, which leads us to Presidential candidate Rick Santorum. Take it away dailywhat:

Virulently anti-gay GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum, who once told the Associated Press that his problem lies not with homosexuals but “with homosexual acts,” told Politico he has contacted Google to ask that they remove links to sites that define his last name as “the frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex.”

A campaign led by sex columnist Dan Savage, launched in the aftermath of the homophobic comment noted above (he's actually said way worse, ed.), resulted in the construction of the neologism, which has since climbed to the top of Google’s search results for the former Senator’s name both organically, and through google bombing techniques.

“I suspect if something was up there like that about Joe Biden, they’d get rid of it,” Santorum is quoted as saying. “If you’re a responsible business, you don’t let things like that happen in your business that have an impact on the country.”

Google responded to Santorum with a corporate shoulder shrug. They recommended that if he's upset with what he sees on the web he should go after the websites not the search engine. I wish him lots of luck with that. Trying to Censor the Internet usually works out pretty well for people.
