Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was taking into custody today.


The hot search today is for the governor’s arrest. Political junkies will have been watching the governor very closely because he was the person who chooses Obama’s successor in the Senate. The best candidates for the job have been the governor’s harshest critics.

Now it’s a good thing he’s out of the picture. It turns out that he was actually trying to sell the Senate seat to the highest bidder. What a dirty crook! In fact he said that the Senate seat “is a valuable f*cking thing. You don’t just give it away for nothing.” POTTY MOUTH!

So, we are all now interested to see how this will affect the Senate appointment.{info via National Post’s….post.}

Let’s see how this embarrassing story is trending:

He takes up 5 slots in the top 10 on Google Trends.  And I bet he’s trying to buy the other slots, the stinking thug.

The governor’s stats are interesting on Google. Today is actually not his busiest day of search traffice…hm…



On Twitter, the governor also takes 5 spots (probably bought off all those twitter-ers, ugh!) Here is an example of what people are saying:

I like to track search trends because it’s so freaking cool to see how what’s on our collective minds. Today, you should expect Hillary to dominate blogs, tweets, and searches.

Also, it’s official that we’re in a recession.

Looks like 2008, even with 1 more month, has been one helluva year.

So what were we searching on Yahoo? Luckily there’s Yahoo Buzz: A Year in Review 2008. (Sent by my Facebook friend Leah…We’re still sorting out how we’re friends lol!)

It’s interesting that under the news section Election 2008 was 3rd compared to the term “Hurricanes.” One would think Election 2008 would be the most popular term this year, but then again we had some nasty storms. Plus most people didn’t use the term Election 2008 to feed their political cravings.

And perhaps the saddest part of the page is the farewell section. The untimely death of Heath Ledger boosted his search term to the top. It’s just a shame that so many untimely deaths are on that list; such as Isaac Hayes, Bernie Mac, George Carlin, Brad Renfro and Tim Russert.

UPDATE/// TechCrunch, in a similar post, shows last years list:

  1. Britney Spears
  2. WWE
  3. Paris Hilton
  4. Naruto
  5. Beyonce
  6. Lindsay Lohan
  7. Rune Scape
  8. Fantasy Football
  9. Fergie
  10. Jessica Alba

Wow….lots of repeats///
