    Reporting from Washington— Presidential hopeful and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum doesn't make headlines like his other Republican contenders, but his name was trending sixth Wednesday in nationwide Google searches. And it's not because of a policy speech or a surge in the polls. It's because he talked about his "Google problem."

    He blasted the Internet company in an interview with Politico Tuesday and reportedly asked Google to remove a site that redefines his name in graphic, sexual terms. When Santorum's name is searched, that site is the first that appears.
    ....Columnist Dan Savage started the site in 2003 in response to anti-gay comments Santorum made in an interview with the Associated Press. This summer on the website FunnyorDie.com, Savage threatened to redefine Santorum's first name too if he campaigned for president on an anti-gay platform.

    I think Mr.Santorum needs to be nicer to Google.  I googled his name and ......ew!  I now know there is such a thing as bad publicity.
