Google’s Bad News For Politicians: What’s in a Name?

February 17, 2011

Former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa., recently addressed his well known Google problem, telling Roll Call in an interview that he is well aware of sex columnist Dan Savage's 2003 contest that redefined the word "santorum" as a sexual neologism. It's worth noting that the former senator is not the only politician whose name produces unusual results when using the search engine.

Jon Huntsman

Probably not going to see this Huntsman – the giant crab spider -- on the campaign trail anytime soon. And it may be for the best.

 

 

Ovide Lamontagne

Scratching your head over some of last year’s tea party candidates? Then reach for the head lice treatment product Ovide. Don't worry -- it's FDA-approved.

Frank Lucas

Searching for this Oklahoma congressman might lead to some unwanted traffic – for the notorious drug trafficker portrayed by Denzel Washington in “American Gangster.”

Jerry Lewis

While politics is a serious game, Rep. Jerry Lewis, R-Calif., is sure to inject some humor into proceedings.

Al Green

Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, can always feel brand new when Googling himself, no matter if times are good, bad, happy or sad.

Daniel Webster

If history is any indication, freshman Rep. Daniel Webster, R-Fla., is destined to do great things.

Adrian Smith

It's good to know Rep. Adrian Smith, R-Neb., has a plan B if his career politics doesn't work out – guitarist for Iron Maiden.
