    Actually quite funny, IMHO. And I verified it by just typing in the names.
    And not just the ones on the conservatives (the one on Barney Frank is good).

    I sort of remember a story that Google was used "politically" at one time. Google shows the most accessed pages first in a search. And there was an organized effort to access a page(s) that were about some negative aspect or scandal of a politician so that if people googled the person, they would most likely see these negative reports.
