Chad, thanks for leaving a comment. There are a couple of points that I want to make:
1. you don't check for errors - my code does very rigorous error checking so that my applications did not suddenly die because of unhandled exceptions.
2. i love the conciseness of your code - mine is 10x longer.
3. i did not know lxml supported xpath - very nice to learn that.
4. i know lxml is much faster than BeautifulSoup, but it's also less prone to malformed HTML. but perhaps in the case when we parse Google it's not that important.
That's everything that I can think of at the moment.
(why do I need your e-mail?)
It would be nice if you left your e-mail address. Sometimes I want to send a private message, or just thank for the great comment. Having your e-mail really helps.
I will never ever spam you.

* use <pre>...</pre> to insert a plain code snippet.
* use <pre lang="lang">...</pre> to insert a syntax highlighted code snippet.
For example, <pre lang="python">...</pre> will insert Python highlighted code.
* use <code>...</code> to highlight a variable or a single shell command.
* use <a href="url" nospam>title</a> to insert links.
<a href="url" nospam>title</a>
* use other HTML tags, such as, <b>, <i>, <blockquote>, <sup>, <sub> for text formatting.
