You would expect such a sentence to be pronounced by an IT Geek, a Guru or an IT teacher, but it isn't quite the case.

This was said, in an extremely natural tone, by one important Italian politician: Gianfranco Fini, leader of the second biggest opposition party "Alleanza Nazionale". He said this during a press conference, replying to a question about the coherence of its position about the latest government deeds.
"I never changed opinion, if you don't believe me you can search Google for my former statements."

Well, it is interesting that a politician is so well informed about how much powerful internet can be, so that it can be used as a reliable recorder of recent history. What is concerning me is the fact that he explicitly cited Google, rather than just the Internet, as a reliable source.
