Gov Palin pushing the limits of search technology
Sarah Palin’s hotness is no longer debatable, at least according to Google trends – the bible of all that’s burning up the Web. A Boston Herald review of google.com/trends shows search terms particular to Palin earned a “volcanic” rating on the site’s “hotness” meter following her “World News Tonight” exclusive. Even her choice of footwear, Naughty Monkey red heels, steamed up the search engine.
“It’s terrific,” said MIT’s Henry Lieberman. (Pics)
A wired electorate is factfinding John McCain’s running mate night and day, the MIT Media Lab research scientist said yesterday.
“(Google) gives the ordinary person the ability to check up on a politician,” said Lieberman, who also raves about factcheck.org. “It will mean people will be much better informed.”
Palin’s ABC sit-down Thursday sent viewers googling for the “Bush doctrine” – after host Charlie Gibson asked for her definition of what many say is not easily summarized as preemptive warfare.
Gibson’s accusation that Palin was guilty of hubris – excessive pride for saying she “didn’t blink” when offered the running mate’s seat – also had the Google wheels squealing.
Sure, Jessica Simpson’s shoes were “on fire” and so too was “virginity for sale,” but they paled to all things Palin.
