Googlebomb Rudy Giuliani Update

I am pleased to report that two of our googlebomb targets on Rudy Giuliani have entered the top ten results on Google under his name:

That is pretty powerful, but I still would like to see the third Googlebomb target, Rudy Giuliani missing in action for Iraq panel reach the top ten as well. And yes, I stand by my belief that this will be worth at least ten million dollars in adveritising money if Giuliani wins the Republican nomination.

Some may ask why I am not Googlebombing Mitt Romney or John McCain. The simple answer is that I don't find either of them threatening in a general eelction, so I do not want to take action that would hurt their chances of winning the Republican nomination.

Fred Thompson, on the other hand, is a bit more of a general election threat (not to mention a threat to jail women who have aobrtions after the first trimester). I am indeed interested in seeking out googlebombing targets against him. There is also a real spite factor on this one, since, Fred Thompson's Internet guy trashed the Googlebomb campaign in a recent National Review article. So, if you find any particularly good, negative news articles on Fred Thompson, please post them in the comments. Articles with Thompson's name in the title are a plus.

I'll keep an eye out for you since my loathing of Freddie is HUGE. But, in the meantime, check this out, via Right Wing Watch- Must see- Fundie version of "God Bless America"..... "WHY should God Bless America?".

Fred Thompson's laziness is just what the GOP needs

The TNR article is actually supportive but it's hard to beat that headline.

How long before we start working on sub-nationals?

John McCain opposes the GI Bill.

And for an article (0.00 / 0)
Fred Thompson hiding that he's been a lobbyist, and then the fact that his record in that regard is so controversial to members of both parties that he doesn't seem to have a non-monetary ideology.  As one that came up quickly.

John McCain opposes the GI Bill.

"I stand by my belief that this will be worth at least ten million dollars in adveritising money if Giuliani wins the Republican nomination."

I would like to see an actual analysis that demonstrates the $10 million figure.

Clinton in '08. Or give Carter a 2nd term. Vote for Obama!


not sure (0.00 / 0)
how Chris came to that figure,
but google trends gives us some idea of the relative volume of giuliani searches over time.

Note that it's generally much higher in 2007 than 2006, so by elevating these articles earlier, we upped the chances of these spikes in giuliani interest going to one of the bombed articles.

do the corporate lobbyist angle (4.00 / 1)
I agree with Lucas, the corporate lobbyist angle is a very weak point for Thompson, and now is the time to tag him with that label, with solid, unpopular examples.  If we don't tag him as a lobbyist, the media will go for easily dodged negatives, like lazy (didn't stop either Reagan or W), or a playboy (didn't stop Reagan or Clinton).  In an era of anger over unfair trade and outsourcing, plus excessive CEO pay, corporate lobbying for huge bucks is a big weakness.

Here's one (4.00 / 1)
It makes him look like a lobbyist and a liar:

"Thompson skims over lobbyist on resume"

It also mentions how he lobbied for Libyan terrorists in the 2nd paragraph.  I'm loving this one.


Beautiful picture, too. (0.00 / 0)

Help with making a comment signature?

Not offensive (0.00 / 0)
