Googling Palin

Google search for "Sarah Palin" in 2001. [via]

And this proves what? That the Alaska newspapers didn't have a big web presence in 2001? Do a search for Mayor Palin (no quotes) and you get results.

Rex, you're started to sound like the Boing Boing you said you hated.

Er, it's funny.

Compare: 2001 and today.

I'm going to fall into your little trap.

OMG GUYS Rex's first handful entries contain the following words: Literary, Pulitzer Prize, Sappho, Top 10, Beatles, and NetCams!

Dammit! Why can't you edit comments on this site, YO?

Yeah, there's a lotta weird stuff in there. p.s. I have a Pulitzer. Fuck you to the people who think I talk about myself too much and don't know that. Hah!

I'm trying to imagine the Pulitzer committee judging a web site.

A bunch of gray-haired newspaper people huddled over an intern's Macbook.

"The colors are pretty and the linky-things work when I click on them. What the fuck, let's give him one."

I'm kidding, of course. I'm sure they made the intern print the first page out.

When I sent my TPA submissions I had to print out each entry and paste them individually with a glue stick.

I noticed that, too, but there are hits for Sarah Palin:

Which makes me think the quotes weren't supported in 2001, or something. I dunno.

In any case, yeah, well my mom has a pulitzer too. Seems they'll give 'em to anyone these days.
