Gaudi and Supercuts

Google has released Gaudi, an audio search engine, with an index that currently only contains political speeches on YouTube. But this could be enough for you to soon create supercuts like Jon Stewart's last night, which obsessed about the word "blink." This technique is usually considered Stewart's strongest rhetorical device, but does anyone else think it's starting to tire? And is it just format fatigue, or has the wonderment become less mystical as technology makes the ability to cull clips across years more common?

Just like with linkblogging, which is also kinda passe, I think there's value in a good filter. Even if Google made it drop-dead easy to search every video, Jon Stewart and the research staff would still do a better job than most of pulling together clips into a coherent story.
