I am logged into Google... I still cannot find a way to duplicate
this new behavior.

I was logged in. I now 'signed out' but still get the evil page if
javascript is enabled.

You do realize that it's only the URL that you get if you Copy Link
Location or Save Link As.., right? If you just click the search result,
the net result is to redirect back through Google to the actual search
hit URL. It's basically transparent to the browser user for simple link
clicks and allows Google to get feedback on search quality (something I
have no problem with).
