Google says the 'completely wrong' image results are 'natural' – not a deliberate jab at Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Political news is big on Google, but the search engine rarely becomes the focus of a political story.
As a slew of Twitterers and bloggers pointed out yesterday afternoon, the search term "completely wrong" brings up a slew of pictures (big and small) of presidential hopeful and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney. CNN has traced the origin of the whole mess to an interview with Sean Hannity of Fox News, wherein Romney attempted to distance himself from his infamous "47 percent" gaffe.
"Clearly in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question-and-answer sessions, now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right," Romney told Hannity, "In this case, I said something that's just completely wrong."
But now his explanation has turned into a veritable Internet meme – and not one that's likely to go away anytime soon.
