So the new sort of Googlebombing move then is not to point a bunch of keyword rich links at a particular site, but instead take advantage of a weakness in one of the vertical search options, get that to rank on the core term & then create a politicized news meme around it to make it permanent. :)

I see two or three reddit threads per month that are created to do just that.  Usually a celebrity or sports star. Or Trump.
