Google As GOP-gle? Oh, Puh-leeze
Looks like Google's been watching Fox News — its new Google NetPAC, launched last month, made contributions to three Republicans congressional candidates, according to the San Jose Mercury News. The Merc's Frank Davies reports $1,000 contributions to each of Reps. Heather Wilson of New Mexico, Deborah Pryce of Ohio, and James Sensenbrenner, head of the House Judiciary Committee and sometime gavel-wielding control freak. At least two of the candidates, Wilson and Sensenbrenner, have porfolios that implicate the use and regulation of the Internet.
Three of Google's new lobbyists were drawn from Republican rankss: Jamie Brown, former legislative liaison in the Bush administration, and former GOP senators Connie Mack and Dan Coats (Davies does not mention what proportion of Google's lobbying staff that comprises).
First of all, $1,000 is nothing. Second, behind those three GOP donation-getters, there are two Dems at the receiving end of Google largesse: Anna Eshoo of Google's home, Palo Alto, and Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan.
Besides, Google's guilty of kissy-face with Commies in order to get into China ... hardly a Conservative ploy. And there's Googles longstanding support of leftist politics. And their ongoing refusal to admit that they live in a Christian nation -- like their ignoring of Christian Christmas and Easter themes on their cute little logo re-dos.
This is left-think at its finest. Take one modest step towards reason and the lefties will pile on and pummel.
