I'm More Popular Than Jesus

Does it suck or does it rock? Sucks-rocks.com settles the question by running search terms through Google and Yahoo to match them with certain positive and negative phrases. ("X sucks, X is lame, X is crap, I hate X... X is sweet, X is awesome, I love X.") A score of 8.2, say, means the term you entered rocks 82% and sucks 18%. The results are clearly scientific:

rocks_sucks
The news isn't all so inspirational, though. It looks like someone is getting away with murder.

Go play. Click where it says "link to this" under your result, then share it with us in the comments.

The news media. Biggest surprises; The Onion's score, C-SPAN's score.

Don't be so modest, the-artist-formerly-known-as-Super
frankenstein. Aren't you one and the same? I've actually seen you walk on water (no, wait, that was Onondaga Lake, so I guess it doesn't count)and perform miracles (didn't you make some moral majority types disappear at a comic convention? I think you were giving lessons on how to draw Reagan).
Maybe there is something to this poll thing. I tried a couple and "Nixon" came back at 6.7 (which I thought was kind of high) then I put in George W. Bush and got a read of 0.0.
Take that with however many grains of salt you will, but as Charlie Brown once put it "I believe in polls!"
And then he got trounced ion the school election.
So, now the rumor is that the Federal Election Commission is gonna skip using the Diebold machines in the next election and just rely on these polls. It's bound to be more fair!
