Google Politically Biased?

Sure would appear that way (warning - link points to Little Green Footballs, so wash your hands thoroughly afterwards).

This sort of thing disgusts me, regardless of which way the bias happens to be tilted. I think that it's generally important for corporations to stay out of politics, but especially so when that corporation is one of the largest distributors of information in the free market.

In a nice break from advocating genocide, the posters in the comments section of LGF do a good job of pointing out that for many people, there's no good alternative to Google - sure, there's other options, but they're weak at best. Frankly, Google pretty much has the market wrapped-up on search. Thus, I hope they decide to make a strong move towards neutrality, and damn quick-like.
