A friend, who is crazy and doesn't want delicious SE points, told me the solution.

  1. Start typing what you'd like to remove
  2. Highlight the item using the keyboard
  3. Hold shift and press delete. (On a Mac laptop, backspace is labeled as delete, so you'll also have to also hold fn when hitting delete)

As a side note, I've noticed that this won't work in all cases. My hypothesis is that this happens when there aren't enough matches or a page is unique for your entry.
