Why does Google hate Jon Swift?

In this era of corporate conservative supremacy, one would think that the folks at Google would genuinely appreciate Jon Swift's preview of Jonah Goldberg's book Liberal Fascism. After all, Swift is a thoughtful conservative who, by his own admission, gets "all [his] news from Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, and Jay Leno monologues. Instead of being appreciative, Google seems to have removed Swift's prose from its search results. Sadder still, it takes a liberal blogger to rush to Swift's defense. We do indeed live in strange times when serious bloggers get treated like satirists and apparent satirists pass themselves off as serious commentators.
