Politics in the 21st Century

Right Wing News[*1] posts this Internet campaign tactic that we’ll go along with . . . the leftists fire off “googlebombs” all the time. Why not, as RightWingNews says, fight fire with fire?

So, what’s to be done? Well, in my opinion, we should simply fightfire with fire. That’s why I put together a list of key races forRepublican blogs to Googlebomb. How do you do that? Simply view source,grab the HTML below, and post it on your blog or in a forum that youfrequent. Then, once Google picks it up, the links on these candidatesshould rocket up charts and help even the playing field for the GOP inthe key races.

Update #1: As an aside, while I was researchingarticles for this Googlebomb, I noticed something interesting: mostRepublican candidates, for whatever reason, already had at least onenegative article up on the front page of Google. On the other hand,again, for whatever reason, it was not unusual for me to go 3 or 4pages deep into some of these Democratic candidates without finding asingle, negative, article about them. So, ironically, we may have agood opportunity to make a much bigger impact than the liberal bloggerswith this Googlebomb. We’ll see.

Here, Google google google? Nice Google. Eat the googlebomb. Good search engine.
