Why Doesn't Google Like American Heroes?

About two weeks ago, GreenMountainPolitics1 was "identified" by Google (which owns Blogger) as a "potential spam blog".

Our blog wasn't shut down, but we were forced to enter a long security key each time we did a post.

This went on for about 24 hours until Google - at our request - had an actual human being look at our blog and determine that we weren't a spam blog.

Aside from being a little annoyed about the whole thing, we didn't think much about it. We guessed that it was someone we had ticked-off who to get even with us dropped a "flag blog" on us to Google.

In any event, today we read that a group of anti-Obama bloggers (so, by default, pro-McCain bloggers) have had the same trouble with Google that we had, and on a larger scale.

All very interesting.

So, as we search the skies for black helicopters and weave a new tinfoil hat, we have to ask: Why doesn't Google like John McCain?

What do those boys and girls in California (and in their hotsy-totsy lobby shop here in DC) have against American heroes?
