Bush is a "miserable failure"

It’s true, Google says so! I ran across this story on Google’s blog which notes that “If you do a Google search on the word [failure] or the phrase [miserable failure], the top result is currently the White House’s official biographical page for President Bush.” Apparently they have received a number of complaints regarding this. They blame it on “pranksters” engaging in the practice of “googlebombing” (wiki) which is people purposely manipulating the search results. Google is reluctant to correct this since it would be modifying the algorithm that their entire engine is built off of. Regardless of your political leanings, it’s pretty funny stuff.
