Santorum accuses Google of discrimination

Santorum accuses Google of discrimination Presidential candidate Rick Santorum has accused Google of discrimination today, thanks to the "graphic sexual term" that accompanies his name in Google searches.
In fact, if you type in "Santorum" into Google, the first result will give you this description (possible NSFW):
Santorum 1. The frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex. 2. Senator Rick Santorum.


Adds the Republican candidate:

I suspect if something was up there like that about Joe Biden, they'd get rid of it. If you're a responsible business, you don't let things like that happen in your business that have an impact on the country.

To have a business allow that type of filth to be purveyed through their website or through their system is something that they say they can't handle but I suspect that's not true.


The search term, and the sex act, was started by gay rights activist Dan Savage in 2003, following Santorum's mild anti-gay comments and position against same-sex marriage.

Uuuum... Aren't guys (political figures) of a similar ilk to Santorum supposed to be above these kind of things? I know I'm a 45+ adolescent... but I choose to behave in the manner I do. I also WANT to be entertaining. If a larger body of people (or some of you guys here in the forums already may know me) look me up & expect most information to go to ass. Others go to Santorum's forum looking for guidance & information and end up getting ass an unwelcome bonus plan.

So then "Super Whitey" comes along & wants to throw in the race card of 'discrimination'? I don't even think this tool is even using the word right. [Not that I have the right to comment given my current affair with my use of hospice/auspice]

Maybe if Santorum thru a few $100K at Google they would pull their matrix voodoo get the search queries to go back to chumming up kitten kissing contests & whatever other whitewashed propaganda he wants people to think he 'really' isn't into.

Maybe Rick should try some KY instead of the grease he gets from fellow Repubpukes.

Why is it always a "conspiracy"?
Maybe, just maybe Google just dosen't give a santorum.


Oh, Im sorry... Did the middle of my sentence interrupt the beginning of yours?

I just searched his name on yahoo mobile. Guess what. Top of the list, same thing. Not googles fault......but still funny as hell.

Saying, '...To have a business allow that type of filth to be purveyed through their website or through their system is something that they say they can't handle but I suspect that's not true.' "

Google's fault, eh? So why then do Yahoo! and Bing yield the same results?

That doesn't look like a search result.

It does look like a dictionary result though.

It's election season, these morons will do anything to get their names in the news as much as they can and it will only get worse till the election. Politics has gotten way out of hand, already one politician has said he will spend over $1 billion on reelection. Next they will give us the load of "Santorum" on how much it helps the economy.

He's a moron to try to get publicity out of it, I say we use it, besides "Santorum" doesn't get picked up by content filters, YET!

Given the choice between having Santorum as president or Rick Santorum as president, I would have to go with Santorum...at least Santorum won't start any wars (unlike every other president for the last 70 years).

Santorum recently made the comment that people "were living too long". In his case, I agree.

OOooooooH!!!! I just got it!!! Greasy sh!t!!!! Hahahahaha! I've got to get out more... This vitamin D deficiency thing...

I can't wait to see who steps up & paints their genitalia red, white & blue for the public arena... how many more of these idiots are going to continue to spout off as bigger religious zealots than the ones we supposedly went to war with as well? Talk about this country needing an enema... We need a high colonic with a fire hose.

But use some of that cherry scented extract though. Can't have the guest complaining of the smell.
