Fang-Face writes "April fools seems to have come twice this year. A Newsday article reprinted at Truthout.org reports that the George Bush Jr. was google bombed. This is a process by which a number of people conspire to use a keyword or phrase heavily on their pages and linking back to the target's home page. The keyword in this case was "miserable failure". Quote the article:
"I thought it was absolutely one of the funniest ideas I've ever heard," said Don Waller, owner of Don Waller Interactive, a Web design company in Islip Terrace and a blogger who joined the prank in late October. "I just decided to jump in with it." "This is just one of those spontaneous things that a blogger will post something and other bloggers will say, 'This is a great idea.'"
Obviously, this Don Waller and his cell of treasonous conspirators are wrong-wing pinko sympathizers. The Big Brother loving drone will not read this story, of course, under penalty of being branded the same."
