Google 'eager' to work with Republicans. Nice.

They have already proved themselves "Eager to work with the CCP" when it comes to cracking down on dissidents. To be fair, it is fairly normal for any market-leading firm to make sure it gets into bed with the right people. What is irritating in the Google case, is that they try and put across the "message" that they are new, different, modern, above that, etc. Better if they took the line which has worked for, say, Exxon, for years "we are a big bad motherf*cker of an oil company, so shut up and stop bothering us".

Hmmm. Since Google hosts this blog for free...
