You have to hand it to Google

You can't knock their patriotism, but you might question their objectivity.

Winter Games: Medal Count

- Add to iGoogle
Gold Silver Bronze Total
1. United States 1 2 3 6
2. Germany 1 3 0 4
3. France 2 0 1 3

This table comes from the Google website, where in any other circumstances you might have expected the medal table to be listed in order of numbers of gold medals, putting the cheese eating surrender monkeys in first place.

Those tied according to the number of gold medals would be separated by silver medals and those ranking equally on that measure would be ranked by bronze medals, putting the Krauts ahead of the Yanks, but then spin is everything these days and if you tell enough people that black is white, eventually, it is.
