SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
Googler in Chief?
October 24 2006
Forget Iraqi insurgents. Online insurgents are taking aim at George W. Bush.
Of course, President Bush gets Google bombed a lot, thanks to that vast left-wing conspiracy. In one well orchestrated prank, Web users entering the words "miserable failure" were directed to the official White House biography of the 43rd U.S. president. During the run-up to the Iraq war, a search of the infamous term "weapons of mass destruction" led to a page saying "Weapons of Mass Destruction cannot be displayed."
Now, the online community is having more fun at Bush's expense, linking to an excerpt of his interview with CNBC anchor Maria Bartiromo during which he plugged Google Earth in that inimitable down-home way that routinely subjects him to gigabytes of Internet ridicule of the Colbert roast variety.
Here's the transcript:
Bartiromo: I'm curious, have you ever googled anybody? Do you use Google?
Bush: Occasionally. One of the things I've used on the Google is to pull up maps. It's very interesting to see. I've forgot the name of the program. But you get the satellite, and you can, like, I kinda like to look at the ranch. It remind me of where I wanna be sometimes.
