Type uses image search to generate fonts (cnet.com)
Despite the name, Google Type isn't a real Google product. The site generates
fonts based on Google image search, hence the name. You type in words, the site
digs through image search and regenerates your text using image versions of each
letter. This is all based on an interesting quirk of Google's image search. If
you type in a single letter and search images, Google gives you a lovely collection
of image representations for that letter. For example, plug in "Y," and you may
see the "Y" from "Yahoo," an illustration of a guy with his arms up in a "Y" shape,
and a hand making the hang-loose sign. Any of these could pop up in Google Type.

Better Fonts Have Helped Save the Romney Campaign? (geeksaresexy.net)
So, the election here in the US is over. After months and months of constant reminders,
attack ads, political discussions all over Facebook, it’s finally come to a close.
I, for one, am extremely glad. Not just of the outcome, but the return to normalcy.
I don’t have to fear my Facebook feed like I used to, and that’s a good thing.
Also, I’ve developed a major geeky crush on Nate Silver (if you ask me, math was
the big winner of this election!). Except one thing keeps bothering me. The night
of the election, I tweeted with something that resounded with a lot of people
on Twitter. It was a brief comment, but something I consider important. Ever since,
I’ve been wondering what would have been different for the Romney campaign if
their design choices hadn’t been so safe. (Yes, I’m a total font nerd, and while
I have many missions here on Earth, one is helping people break free from terrible
fonts and eradicate Papyrus and Comic Sans forever from our collective consciousness.)
fonts can affect your political opinions (dailymail.co.uk)
Presenting arguments in a difficult to read font can lead those with extreme
political views to moderate their opinions, new research claims. The study,
reported in the Journal of Experimental Psychology, shows how subtle manipulations
that affect the way people take in information can colour their response. By
asking participants to read an overtly political argument about capital punishment
in a challenging font, researchers sought to disrupt participants’ usual attitudes
to the subject. >>
