Heh. Check out this Google joke that bashes our Chief Chimp. Pretty damned funny, huh? And "it's funny because it's true," because President Bush is, indeed, a miserable failure.

Here's an excerpt from a New York Newsday article via Eschaton that gives some mainstream coverage of this internet jest called a "Google bomb:"

Search engines work much like an index in the back of a book, allowing people to look up words and directing them to the page in which the words appear. The search engines scour Web pages to create the index. In this case, computer users wrote links labeled "miserable failure." When users click on the link, it brings them to the official Bush bio.

When Google software creates its index, it notices the association between the phrase "miserable failure" and the Bush bio. So a search for the phrase brings up the bio.

Thanks to my buddy, Matt, for tipping me off about the Miserable Failure meme.
