Googlebombing John O'Neill
One of the reasons I believe that the right is no longer looking to conman Ted Sampley as a Vietnam vet spokesman against Kerry (notice that Sean Hannity has't brought up Sampley's name lately) is not so much that he is a conman (and a complete nut job)--rather it has been that he has been exposed as a conman. One way this has been achieved is by so many bloggers and writers whose articles are near the top of a Google search of Sampley's name.
Doing the same thing for the hard right's new Vietnam vet darling John O'Neill (who previously railed against Kerry for the Nixon White House) will be more difficult. One problem is that "John O'Neill" is a common name. However, it is important. O'Neill's piece-of-shit editorial for the piece-of-shit Wall Street Journal editorial page is a good example. The subtitle of the editorial is "I was on Mr. Kerry's boat in Vietnam. He doesn't deserve to be commander in chief." (yeah right). However, Google searchers should be able to access a comprehensive article that tells them who O'Neill really is. Joe Conason 's recent article for Salon is a good choice. Accordingly, a good Googlebomb would be to link the words "John O'Neill" to http://www.salon.com/opinion/conason/2004/04/23/o_neill/index.html
The result will look like this: John O'Neill
UPDATE: Also, please googlebomb the words "Swift Boat Veterans for Truth" to this link: http://www.salon.com/opinion/conason/2004/05/04/swift/index_np.html
The result will look like this: Swift Boat Veterans for Truth
Other Googlebombing news: my site slipped a little in my Googlebombing of the words "Christopher Ruddy." It's apparently because Ruddy and NewsMax googlebombed another Newsmax page. No problemo; I'm still number four.
