The second ‘Greatest Living American?’ Brandon Wirtz

LR reader Brandon Wirtz has humbly alerted us to this addendum to the Colbert Google bomb story. He is the second “Greatest Living American,” if you do a Google or Yahoo search. I consider this an even more impressive feat than Colbert’s since, no offense Brandon, Colbert has a slightly bigger audience. The more links Brandon gets, the higher his ranking goes. Who are we to argue? Here’s to Brandon Wirtz, the second Greatest Living American. He is also shooting for Greatest Undead American, so I’m including that in the body of this copy as well. I now issue this challenge: I want the LR Faithful to make “Steve Safran” the top result for “Laziest Man in America.” Let’s keep the meme going. Link to this story and include the words “Steve Safran is the Laziest Man in America,” along with whatever stupid stuff you have to do for SEO or Google bombing. Together, we can make a difference.

UPDATE: Will you look at that? One day later, and I’m #2 in the search rankings for “Laziest Man in America.” Yeah, second laziest is pretty lazy alright. But I’m in it to win it. Keep linking.
