I'm not sure what google hits prove, but if we're going to prove anything about the 2008 campaign, we should limit our results to that time period. If we look at the year from Nov. 1, 2007 to Nov. 1, 2008, here are the results of your query:
Reverend Wright - 50,100 hits
Dick Cheney - 162,000 hits
Reverend Wright God Damn America - 6,300
Dick Cheney Go F Yourself - 12,700
