Political Google Bombing

Don't think I've seen this done before:

That's not really Google bombing.

Two thoughts here.

1) Someone looking to influence popular opinion really could practice Google Bombing. What if a small Geocities page that alleged some sort of scandals was leaked to the Blogging community. It would quickly climb Google's ranks.

2) Google has become "the internet" in a similar way to Yahoo. If a web page isn't on Google, it might as well not be on the net. What a powerful form of censorship that could be!
