Google shows conservative women in bikinis

Google shows conservative women in bikinisImagine my surprise. I typed “Michelle Malkin” into Google’s web search engine — and their results included a picture. Of Michelle Malkin in a bikini.

This must be a fluke, I thought — so I tried typing “Ann Coulter” into Google’s web search engine. After all, Coulter is another famous female pundit — and also a conservative one — so I’d expect Google to pull up a series of web pages with her commentary, and not pictures of Coulter in a bikini.

But I was wrong.

This isn’t Google’s image directory I’m searching; these are their search results for the web. I knew Google had been trying new layouts of their results recently — but could there be another explanation?

Two bikini pictures could still be a coincidence, I thought. What would happen if I typed in the name of a male conservative pundit — maybe a reporter for the Cybercast News Service. Let’s see… If we innocently go to Google’s web search engine, and type in the name “Jeff Gannon”….

To be fair to Google, the Jeff Gannon picture makes sense. His racy past drew a lot of attention when it was discovered by investigative bloggers. But web surfers who look for conspiracies will still want to ask why Google never displays a picture when I search for a liberal pundit. And I mean never…

Markos Moulitsas? Nope. If you go to Google’s web directory and type in the name of the man behind the Daily Kos blog, Google’s search results are all text. What happens when you type in Duncan B. Black — the editor of the popular liberal site Eschaton? His results also text-only. Christie Hardin Smith? Josh Marshall?

Nope. Every time I typed the name of a liberal pundit into Google, their search results came back without pictures. Molly Ivins? Cokie Roberts? Nope. For these unabashedly liberal pundits, Google shows only text results.

Now, there’s lots of reasons why this could be happening. While Google is transitioning to a new format for its search results, this might be a temporary aberration. Maybe Google plans to add images to all their searches soon, and they’ve arbitrarily started with female conservative pundits. Maybe Google will only show images when there’s something especially controversial — like a conservative pundit wearing a bikini.

Or maybe there’s a practical joker at Google who really hates conservatives.

    sadly, i think it might be that google’s image search is based on popularity…so there’s people out there looking for pictures of Ann Coulter in a bikini *shudder*

  2. Miklo16:

    I would love to see the ultimate transvestite witch – Ann Coulter – debate Rhandi Rhodes in a one on one format. Wow!! Rhandi would tear the balls off that skinny bitch by presenting the FACTS

  3. likwidshoe:

    Ahhh..that famous liberal “tolerance”.

    Right guys?

  4. Emmanuel:

    A social conservative is a bigger target than a social leftist for this type of, uh, ‘criticism.’ If you can call it that. Social conservatives are less likely to be scantily clad in public, and, so, racy pictures are more likely to be widely distributed and sought after.

  5. Emmanuel:

    Also, Markos Moulitsas in a bikini isn’t exactly something that I could see anybody looking for. Most relatively socially-left people will not give a damn, and most relatively socially-right people would not be surprised, should a picture surface. Unless he has fangirls. They’re outliers, though.

    you should make easily available the naked photos.

  14. peace life:

    This sounds funny. But on serious note, google doesn’t and cannot have control over images being displayed for search words. It just picks up alt and title tags of images, and clusters them for indexing

    Liberals are pieces of shit.

    Hollywood had some of the most beautiful women on the planet, an extremely high percentage of whom are liberal, and I’m sure that a Scarlett Johansson search (an outspoken Democrat) will get you plenty of bikini pics.

    Notice that most of those are Fox News Contributors? Ever seen an “obviously” unattractive female correspondent over there on Fox? Could it be that for hard core conservatives, women are still seen as being valued more for being women than for their contributions to society? I am far from suggesting that conservative women are dumb, but the misogynistic power brokers of the right-wing media don’t seem to be interested in their opinions unless they look pretty saying them.

    “It would be a much better country if women did not vote. That is simply a fact. In fact, in every presidential election since 1950 – except Goldwater in ’64 – the Republican would have won, if only the men had voted.” Ann Coulter – May 17, 2003

    I think I like her better in a bikini!

    One of the core tenets of “liberalism”, aka Gramscism, is that “liberals” can’t be racist, homophobic, or all the other names “liberals” accuse non-”liberals” of being, no matter how racist, homophobic, etc. those “liberals” in fact are.

    For instance, on this excerpt Randi Rhodes says she wants to “kick Ann Coulter in the nuts”, and there or elsewhere she’s engaged in the now-standard “liberal” “joke” of pretending she’s not really a woman.

    Now, surprisingly, one site is leading the clarion call to reveal Randi Rhodes for what she is:

    Listening to Randi Rhodes on Air America Radio I heard her mock Ann Coulter, insinuating she was a transsexual. This is insulting to Ann Coulter on a purely personal level, and it’s demeaning of anyone trans because of the stereotypes. Just goes to show you that ignorance, bigotry, and transphobia isn’t exclusive to right wing Republicans.
