great google bombs

I recall getting an email awhile back about the results of doing a search on "miserable failure" or other similar words and Mr. Bush would be at the top of the list.
I don't remember if the term google bombing was used in the story. Well, if you search on this now you find a story about how google modified things to prevent google bombing.

Well I guess it stills works somewhat because Stephen Colbert and his fans launched an effect to put him at the top of the "greatest living american" search results.

One reason to pay some attention to this, is the example it gives us for trusting and using internet searches.
