Edited to add: yes, I know this is an utterly obnoxious post. Sometimes I just have those sort of days.
Call me a meanyhead, but I can’t decide whether he’s more of a paranoid whiner or a clueless wanker. Neither of those terms have any current significant googlebombing attached, but which to choose as anchor text for this towering wingnut intellect? Anybody else want to play?
In a post titled “Google’s Anti-Conservative Bias” [screen capture] this putative political blogger reveals not only that he missed an entire round of cybercampaigning in the 2004 US presidential election, but that he’s whining about Google without doing even cursory research into how search engine algorithms work.
Best bit: he tags his blog with “Facts are Stubborn Things”. They are indeed, and such a stunning lack of aquaintance with the facts of SEO needs rectifying, don’t you think? I was going to leave a free clue linking to the wikipedia articles above in his comments, but I’m feeling nasty, and I thought a graphic demonstration of how linkbombing works would be much more fun. But perhaps I am being too cruel. I guess I’ll see how many people think this game is worth playing. After all, he can always persuade his wingnut mates to linkbomb me as ‘sarcastic bitch’ or whatever.
He’s so proud of his exposure of Google’s alleged bias that he’s even made a little graphic button for people to use to link back to that post. Mind you, I don’t know how many are, because he’s only had one comment on it so far.
It’s no secret that Google has a liberal bias and uses its strategic platform to discriminate towards conservatives in the results yielded by its powerful search engine. According to World Net Daily:
You can imagine just how much worse the post gets when he’s quoting WND as a primary resource. This chap seems to just regurgitate their talking points every day and call it independent commentary. Going by his sidebar link-buttons, he also chomps cigars, drives a custom pickup truck around the ‘burbs, and gets bent really out of shape if someone wishes him “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas”.
NoPunditNo will quite possibly take down that page if lots of people start linking to it and he starts following trackbacks to see what’s happening, so I’ve taken a screen-capture. Even if he does delete the page, following the link will still point to his blog’s error page, so the essential idea will still work.
