I Am Not a By-Product of Anal Sex! I Am a Human Being!

Google responds to Rick Santorum’s request to remove his filthy namesake page from its database:

“Google’s search results are a reflection of the content and information that is available on the web. Users who want content removed from the Internet should contact the webmaster of the page directly,” the spokesperson said. “Once the webmaster takes the page down from the web, it will be removed from Google’s search results through our usual crawling process.”

While we wait for Dan Savage to take a swing at the softest pitch all season, consider Google’s subsequent baldface lie clarification:

The spokesperson said that Google does not “remove content from our search results, except in very limited cases such as illegal content and violations of our webmaster guidelines.”

Left unmentioned: Google will cooperate with a DMCA takedown notice — and include a blurb about “missing results” on affected pages.

So rather than bitch about Internet filth — and good luck with that! — all Rick Santorum needs to do is trademark his name and inform Google that Dan Savage is engaging in piracy. We can’t think of a better ending to the saga.

Is it wrong to trademark someone’s name and give it to Dan Savage?

I just sent you this article before landing here for my afternoon check-in. Feel free to ignore it.

@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That: Stinque is the home of uncredited news feeds. If I had a nickel for every blazing hot linque I’ve sent to Stinque I’d most likely be able to afford a cabin with indoor plumbing on my upcoming Cape Cod adventure. But No. The Stinque god must hog all the credit even if we’re talking brazilian waxes and assess chaps. Let’s face it: what we have here is Nazi Gawker.

@Benedick: I agree with anything that casts aspersions on Mike Lee 100%.

As a point of order, however, I should note that the post did go up somewhat earlier than I sent the actual linque.

Real santoroum, by the way, is nowhere near as dark as the latte above suggests. Think more along the lines of weak tea and milk.

Nazi Gawker!

@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That: We’d all do better to not look in the toilet.

I see the Virgin Mary in that drink.

@JNOV: What is the mission of this site, if not to look there? Nojo has posted articles on Dick Cheney of all people?

@JNOV: I look in the toilet and see what used to be Mike Lee.

Mike Lee is the afterbirth of butthole babies.
