Submission + - Santorum Still Doesn't Understand "Google Bombs" (rollcall.com)

PerlDiver writes: The former U.S. Senator (R-PA) who got famously, um, smeared by sex columnist Dan Savage after saying that gay sex could "undermine the fabric of our society" apparently still hasn't been told that it takes thousands of links on many sites to affect Google search results rankings:

Santorum himself sounded slightly defeated when asked about it recently.

"It's one guy. You know who it is. The Internet allows for this type of vulgarity to circulate. It's unfortunate that we have someone who obviously has some issues. But he has an opportunity to speak," Santorum told Roll Call.

Or maybe the alleged 2012 Presidential hopeful just can't imagine he's that unpopular.
