The Real Election: Google or Microsoft?

I have Microsoft's Windows XP on my computer and use its Internet Explorer to hop on the Web. Yahoo is my email provider. And this blog is part of the Google empire.
In short, I don't know who to root for in Microsoft's $44.5 billion bid to acquire Yahoo and compete with Google.
From this vantage point, they all seem pretty ominous.
However, it appears that the silly season regarding this huge deal is well underway. Google has the nerve to suggest that the combination of Microsoft and Yahoo would be anti-competitive. This is the same Google that won't rest until it knows everything about us and how best to cash in on that information with its sly brand of target marketing.
I suppose Microsoft would do the same if it could. But it can't--not yet at least, not until Yahoo and the federal government agree to the merger.
You have to wonder why Google is so uptight.
After all, neither Microsoft nor Yahoo have given the web-search firm a real run for the millions. What makes Google think the combination of these two will produce such an insurmountable threat?
Considering this is a very hostile offer by Microsoft, Google should get wise by dropping the anti-trust pretense and let this deal fly on its own accord.
Who knows? A Microsoft-Yahoo pact could be the best thing that ever happened to Google.
