If you do the "miserable failure" search on Google, the answer to your question is in the first few results. It's called the "Miserable Failure" project, and it's an effort by folks who publish web logs to link the term "miserable failure" to George W. Bush:http://www.amon-hen.com/index.cgi/Politics/Miserable_FailureSo, the way Google works is if lots of pages containing the same phrase point to a single subject, that subject will be the top ranked site. No conspiracy on Google's part -- they just do what they do, and they do it quite well.FF, you might send a note to the talk show hosts to call off the dogs. I have great respect for Google and actually have some friends that work there. The idea that Google's name could be involved in a big political stink due to some misinformation would be unfortunate, especially since it appears that they are likely prepping for a possible IPO in the near future. It should be made perfectly clear that these search results are *NOT* the result of some "stacking the deck" by Google. Rather, they are the result of some folks on the web stacking the deck via concerted effort, an organized online protest, if you will. The gag is kind of silly if you ask me, but then again, so is much of the political world :-)CC
