Google ‘Spreading Santorum’ A Little Less When It Comes To Rick Santorum

by Wonkette Jr.

Former Pennsylvania (?) Senator Rick Santorum initially rose to prominence when it was discovered that his last name is — go figure! — a perfect homonym with “santorum,” the frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex. So what a stroke of luck for his presidential campaign, that they could take advantage of this link between the candidate’s name and the act he spends 60% of his waking hours contemplating/working to outlaw (when it occurs between unordained homosexual men, at least). Buddy, you can’t buy name recognition like that!

Sadly, as of today(ish), searching Google for “santorum” will no longer generate SpreadingSantorum.com, the first and most reputable site to document this connection, as the first #1 top result. Why? Well, in the dank corners of the Internet where such things are studied, theories abound. In our dank corner of the Internet, however, we must return, always, always, to the horse race and ask, Is this the end for the Santorum campaign? How will Rick ever rebound? Is it too late to maybe talk about the gays some more? [Search Engine Land via Balloon Juice]

 

Hola wonkerados.

To improve site performance, we did a thing. It could be up to three minutes before your comment appears. DON'T KEEP RETRYING, OKAY?

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

Time to overthrow our Googlistic overlords and replace them with someone that will keep santorum in its rightful place.

Loaded_Pants February 29, 2012 at 7:44 pm

Santorum is the only thing that could be both on the bottom & on the top.

Biff February 29, 2012 at 9:24 pm

Bing still returns the correct results.

"Is it too late to maybe talk about the gays some more?"
I love gay people, or as I like to call them, "people"

JustPixelz February 29, 2012 at 7:39 pm

If gays are people…
And if corporations are people …
Can there be gay corporations? (I'm lookin' at you Dominos.)

MinAgain February 29, 2012 at 7:42 pm

Probably. I mean, can you imagine a straight corporation coming up with the entries for the Victoria's Secret Runway show?

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 1:56 am

Domino's is anti-choice, so it doesn't seem like they'd be gay.

Callyson February 29, 2012 at 7:07 pm

And the santorum finally fades away…thought we'd never be rid of it.

edgydrifter February 29, 2012 at 7:10 pm

Santorum always rises to the top.

Dashboard Buddha February 29, 2012 at 10:49 pm

It's easier to snorkel that way.

Texan_Bulldog February 29, 2012 at 7:14 pm

Your move, Dan Savage.

SpreadingSantorum.com shall surge again, from behind!

Just you wait…

*gulp*

MissTaken February 29, 2012 at 7:22 pm

Like that other mix of fecal matter known as the South, Santorum will rise again!

Loaded_Pants February 29, 2012 at 7:50 pm

Speaking of the South: http://www.knoxnews.com/news/2012/feb/29/rick-san

Wonder if Freaky Frothy picked a place of rendezvous with Stacey Campfield for a quickie.

Well, it is a big tobacco state.

ifthethunderdontgetya February 29, 2012 at 7:24 pm

I like the sidebar poll option:

It brought Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul back into the mix.

Ho ho ho, I see what they did there.

It's unfortunate that so many people are mentioning that Santorum no longer has the top rated google problem. Including The Hill…….

Loaded_Pants February 29, 2012 at 8:00 pm

"It’s unfortunate that we have someone who obviously has some issues. But he has an opportunity to speak," said Santorum.
I feel the same way about you, Dumbface Whinyvoice Sweatervest.

Like you have no issues yourself. I can think of:
1) Stupid
2) Crazy
3) Clueless
And that's just first three items on the list.

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 1:59 am

I really think "woman hating", "religious fanatic", and "sex phobic" should be ahead of "clueless" on that list.

JudasPeckerwood February 29, 2012 at 7:46 pm

Please people, don't get into a lather over this.

johnnyzhivago February 29, 2012 at 8:04 pm

As a person actively involved in looking at Google results for clients, let me just say this – it's easier to attribute to malice what's more accurately explained by stupidity – or in this case Google.

OzoneTom February 29, 2012 at 8:10 pm

This is bad news for Rmoney. The new algorithms have a frothy bias.

RadioCualquier February 29, 2012 at 8:28 pm

I'm shocked and dismayed to think that a mega-corporation like google would do something dubious. I'm sure there were no discussions in quiet rooms. No "crony" capitalism here.
Yep, Santorum could always use a little SOPA.

WITH MICHIGAN BEHIND HIM, SANTORUM SMELLS VICTORY

Nothing like it. Smells like dickcheese.

Wild Bill Bennett of Vegas fame? Has he ever been wrong? Thank Gawd addictive gambling is a a fundamental Amurrikan male value, otherwise we'd have to stop hearing from this douche-head.

pinkocommi February 29, 2012 at 8:46 pm

As long as Santorum still comes up first when you Google "shit for brains," it is all good.

Come here a minute February 29, 2012 at 9:05 pm

Froth with the air removed winds up amounting to very, very little.

littlebigdaddy February 29, 2012 at 9:30 pm

Yes, but as the Internet is a series of tubes and Google is, like, I guess, the valves (?) of the series of tubes, doesn't that mean that the santorum will erupt someplace else, like maybe unexpectedly on The View?

Spurning Beer February 29, 2012 at 9:38 pm

I would like to hear more about this http://spreadingsantorum.com/

Spurning Beer February 29, 2012 at 9:39 pm

Does anyone have any experience with the site http://spreadingsantorum.com/ ?

Spurning Beer February 29, 2012 at 9:41 pm

Does it have any practical effect to link to http://spreadingsantorum.com/ ?

Spurning Beer February 29, 2012 at 9:47 pm

There seems to be a problem with linking to a site on the spreading of santorum. I tried three times, and the comments vaporized.

Would something happen if that link were included in a comment?

flamingpdog March 1, 2012 at 1:31 am

You mean, like I sure wish Rick Santorum would bring along all the Santorum children out on the campaign trail with him. I mean, aren't they all home-schooled by Mrs. Santorum, anyway? And maybe even the Santorum pets, too, also?

bravo_sierra March 1, 2012 at 2:52 pm

You're on the right track. It isn't enough to link to the correct definition of Rick Santorum, you have to link key words that people would use in a search.

Also, I've found Google search results are at least some what tailored to my search history, so don't be too excited if you see spreadingsantorum.com back where it rightfully belongs – others might not get it as the first result.

Spurning Beer February 29, 2012 at 9:51 pm

Please disregard the previous comment about difficulties posting links to http://spreadingsantorum.com/

Data Exactly February 29, 2012 at 10:14 pm

Spreading Santorum is a good site. It should be the top result on every search result. Fecal matter is pretty fun, also. Give us more of that too, Google!

ttommyunger February 29, 2012 at 10:16 pm

O.T: Passing by wife's Lady Cave tonight, overheard Stephen Tyler commend Idol contestant for her "money shot". Wondering now if I should be watching American Idol after all.

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 2:01 am

Why was Steven Tyler in your wife's lady cave?
And while you were home, no less?
If you ask me, they've both got a hell of a nerve!

flamingpdog March 1, 2012 at 2:21 am

If Steven Tyler were in my ex-wife's lady cave, he'd probably be looking for an elderly Bruce Wayne in costume.

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 2:34 am

OMG!!
Steven Tyler is Robin, the Boy Wonder!!

ttommyunger March 1, 2012 at 6:42 am

I ask no questions. She is a hard woman.

littlebigdaddy February 29, 2012 at 10:32 pm

Lady cave? Please explain.

LadyWisdom February 29, 2012 at 11:29 pm

They did the same thing with spreadingromney. It too has moved way down the page.

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 2:05 am

It really doesn't matter if http://spreadingsantorum.com/ is no longer the first result on google for http://spreadingsantorum.com/. It doesn't even matter if http://spreadingsantorum.com/ never comes up (tee hee) again. The damage is done. For the next hundred years, at least, nobody will ever hear the name "Santorum" without thinking of http://spreadingsantorum.com/ and snickering, and it would be hard (tee hee) to think of a more richly deserved punishment.

And can we all take a moment to say, "Good job, Dan Savage!"?

GodShammgod March 1, 2012 at 12:06 pm

The fun irony is that most santorum comes from straights who don't know how to do anal sex correctly.

(And yep, I'm back).

DahBoner March 1, 2012 at 12:16 pm

Just the other day, I had to correct one of America's yout, who referred to "booty juice".

The kids these days…

valthemus March 2, 2012 at 12:03 am

So what if http://spreadingsantorum.com/ only comes second in the Google results? If all you're seeing is number 2 then you're doing something wrong.

tcaalaw March 2, 2012 at 8:50 am

The day when America's school children won't be able to quickly learn from a Google search that "santorum" means a "frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex" will be a sad day indeed.

Nostrildamus March 2, 2012 at 9:07 pm

Here's a quick and easy. Every time a winger shows up on Wonkette, trace their profile back to the their winger blogs and post something like this (more sites, higher rank):

Uh-oh Barry! Santorum is going to mop the floor with the Kenyan this November.

fxgeorges March 5, 2012 at 12:55 am

I do not support Santorum, but I honestly think that your argument makes´╗┐ less sense than his.
