So that's what a mandate looks like!

Sometimes, I love to roll around in the sorrow of others:


Other Fun Poll Results:
Nearly 6 in 10 -- 58 percent -- said they have doubts about Bush's honesty, the first time in his presidency that more than half the country has questioned his personal integrity.

Nearly 6 in 10 -- 58 percent -- doubt Bush shares their values, while 40 percent say he does, another new low for this president. For the first time since he took office, fewer than half -- 47 percent -- said Bush is a strong leader, and Americans divided equally over whether Bush can be trusted in a crisis.

Shocking news.

Anyway, this has been circulating around email, so some of you may have seen it already, but here is some fun with Google:
  1. Go to Google.
  2. Type in: Failure
  3. Instead of clicking on the Search button, click the "I'm feeling Lucky" button.

I'm sure this will stop working eventually, but for now, you've got to love that crazy Google.

Note about the google thing...

For anyone who doesn't realize this, google's founders are all on the record as being, well, "rather liberal."

So that's the underlying reason there. It's not just some cosmic coincidence.

That should seem fairly clear, and eventually they will probably have to change it.

That does not diminish the humor of it, however.

excuse me if i remain skeptical in light of the fact that this is the only sensible statement google can release without possibly suffering an actual backlash.

I wish that if you typed in "coolest cat around," it brought up my blog as the first item (since I really don't have an OFFICIAL website)

Instead it brings up this stud:

Really, all things considered, Google probably made the right choice.

Anyone just do a regular search? Bush is first, but check second.

Dude, this is so 2 years ago:

And the original google bomb was "miserable failure."

Also, it's quite ridiculous to suggest that Larry Page and Sergey Brin of Google are specifically controlling how "failure" and Bush are correlated. I think they have better ways to spend their time.

You know, like making money hand over fist.
