3. It's been up there that long?

I only heard about it on the local news this morning. Sorry.

Added: I took a look at some of the news articles a bit lower. The BBC bit is dated December, 2003. My apologies.

5. Is there a mass e-mail going around about this or something?
It's been this way for ages, and people stopped talking about it after a while, but now it's like half the Internets are discovering it for the first time! What's the deal?

8. Not just the first link, but every link on the page, except the second
which is Michael Moore's website - is that a result of RW google bombing?

I think it's hilarious - the primary 'Miserable Failure' is the leader of the republican party, the single most powerful man in the world. To counter that the RW targets an entertainer. Not the most powerful Dem, or any projected political rival, but an entertainer.

Funny.
