Blue Google

According to CNN/Money,
    Google for Kerry?

    According to USA Today, 98% of search engine's employees gave money to Democrats in '04.

    Google Inc. employees took out their wallets and showed overwhelming support for the Democratic Party last year, according to a report Monday in USA Today.

    A USA Today campaign finance analysis found that, of the company's overall political contributions, 98 percent went to Democrats, the biggest share among top tech donors.

    The online search company's employees gave $207,650 to federal candidates during last year's election campaign, which includes the White House race between Democrat John Kerry and the winning incumbent Republican, President Bush. The contributions were up from just $250 in 2000 when Google was a start-up, according to the paper.
Just one more excuse (as if we needed one) to go ahead and indulge in everyone's favorite online pastime.
