Quin, don't jump the gun here. This works both ways: when you type in "French military victories" and hit I'm Feeling Lucky, you get an outside site made to look like a Google results page that says those terms did not match any documents and, "Did you mean french military defeats."

So if these guys were smart enough to game the system, who's to say Google's responsible for the President Bush/failure stunt? We don't know if they are. And if we assume they are, then they have a sense of humor that works both ways.
