Go to Google and enter either "failure" or "miserable failure" in the search box -- the #1 result will be the biography page of George W. Bush from the official White House website. Information Week has published an article about why this happens ("Google Won't Remove 'Failure' Link to Bush"). So many bloggers have linked the words "miserable failure" to George W. Bush that it has impacted the formula Google uses in ranking its search results. Information Week calls these bloggers "pranksters," but I don't think this is a prank. George W. Bush is a miserable failure as president, a fact that the folks at Information Week might not want to admit, but it's a fact nonetheless.
So I'm joining the ranks: in that last sentence (and in the title of this blog entry) I linked "miserable failure" to Shrub's biography, and I invite my fellow liberal bloggers to do the same.
Many thanks to my friend Kayanne Young for this great photo illustrating our president's competence and dexterity (notice the phone cord).
