Google Wants To Stop Spreading Santorum

Spreading Santorum… but there’s just no way to put the stuff back where it came from! Danny Sullivan explains at SearchEngineLand:

As Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum loses two primary races to rival Mitt Romney, perhaps he can console himself with, ironically, another loss. Spreading Santorum, the page defining “santorum” as a by-product of anal sex, has finally dropped from the top results on Google. The related anti-Santorum blog, however, remains. And a page from Urban Dictionary keeps the definition alive, more explicit than before.

Santorum: The Definition Page
The page at SpreadingSantorum.com, created by columnist Dan Savage as a protest against Santorum’s views about homosexuality, has maintained its position in the top results on Google for years. The page defines “santorum” as:

The frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex.

To understand more of the history of the site, and how it ended up doing so well on Google (and Bing, Yahoo and Baidu), see my previous article, Should Rick Santorum’s “Google Problem” Be Fixed?

    I doubt he’ll ever shed that unfortunate association. If he wasn’t such a douche bag, I’d feel bad for him.

  2. Santorum will forever be associated with anal lube froth. Serves him right.

  3. As much as I dislike Rick Santorum (which is a lot), I don’t have any problems with his family. Apparently, Dan Savage wanted to slight everyone named Santorum, dead and alive.

    The whole thing reminds me of something a 12-year old would do.

    Wipe away the Santorum all you want, but the fetid stench will forever remain……

    No amount of colonic irrigation by Google will get rid of the fecal-lube froth that is santorum.
