Google best watch what it sows

Today, it is Google in court trying to persuade the government to punish Microsoft.  It is only a matter of time before Google is sitting in Microsoft’s position, defending its actions in the marketplace for something like online advertising from the also-rans (Yahoo in 5 years?).  I certainly feel no sympathy for Google.  Stop complaining and sniping with pansy lawyers and go out there and whoop Microsoft’s ass by out-competing them every way you can.
