Google Reveals Candidates' REAL Views on Women

What does Google's AutoFill reflect about the potential Democratic and Republican first ladies? And what does it reveal about the candidate's views towards women? Let's analyze the results, keeping in mind how they relate to the  candidates' perceptions.


1. "obama michelle new yorker cover"
Though the cover was a google hit, many people considered it a resounding FAIL. The lesson to New Yorker might be as follows: don't hate the player, hate the game.

2. "obama michelle feist"
Some Googlers seem to associate Michelle with a musician who's so cool, not even Bob's heard of her.

3. "obama michelle thesis"
It's no secret: she's a scholar.

4. "obama michelle fist bump"
You'd have to be one amazingly dated 30 something yr.-old (e.g. E.D. Hill of FOX) to not recognize a traditional "daps." But you'd be a stunningly hip 40+ year old if it was the way you gave props.

5. "obama michelle fashion"
Yeah, she's on the cutting edge. And she didn't need to spend $300K to get there.

6. "obama michelle children"
Great kids, great parents.

7. "obama michelle first kiss"

The above Autofill List helps illustrate why NOW, in a rare (or even unprecedented) move, urgently endorsed Barack Obama this morning as their general election candidate (per NPR).

Now let's take a look at what Google's results say about John McCain in regards to women.


Oy vay.

John won't take this too hard seeing as how he doesn't know how to use teh internets yet.

It's pretty amazing, thanks for pointing it out.

For Cindy, the top results are "mccain cindy drugs" with over 2 mil, followed by "mccain cindy age" with almost 2 mil.

That's amazing.  Great find.

I'm sure the righties will be ranting and raving about how its Google is liberally biased because it accurately tracks hits.

You've never heard of Feist?

I bet you've heard her song that Apple used.  It was inescapable several months ago if you owned a TV.
