Rick Santorum's problem with Google

Stephanie Mencimer's article on MotherJones.com "Rick Santorum's Anal Sex Problem" was forward to me by my friend Tom who also dislikes the ultra-conservative former U.S. Senator from PA. Although Santorum is the darling of conservatives and may have eyes on a Presidential run in 2012 the article explains that he has a bit of a Google issue.

When you Google Rick Santorum, top search results consistently list SpreadingSantorum.com (FYI - not cool to check out if at work). The site explains that Santorum's last name is a sexual neologism for "the frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex."

Apparently Dan Savage launched this site a few years ago and has not updated it recently but Google (and Bing I've just discovered) list SpreadingSantorum.com as one of the top 3 sites.

I know its petty, but I'd like to ask bloggers to encourage their readers to look up Rick Santorum on both Google and Bing and click the appropriate link to keep the embarassing link high in the rankings... Who knows, perhaps I'll even add it as a link to my own site as my way of saying F.U. to the man who's made a career out of homophobic and hateful speech against the GLBT community.
