Yesterday I had my biggest day ever as far as hits go. And it was not the McLinky thing. That thing had over a thousand entries that made it too big to display all the websites. That was pretty much a bust. No what made it a big day at Political Exile was a surge in people googling “what does Michael Jackson look like dead”. When you Google that, I appear on the first page at the bottom with my blog entry “it looks like Michael Jackson is dead” which I wrote in real time when the news was trying to figure out what was going on at the hospital a week ago last.
It begs to ask, why yesterday, did people start to wonder “what does Michael Jackson looks like dead”? Even more curiously, what did they expect to find? Photos from the coroner? Photos from the hospital staff from their cell phones? And even stranger is why do they want to see him dead? Just plain weird.
