They Always Take Away The Things I Like

Google's courting the Republicans. That's bad enough considering the Republicans are nothing if not fond of Big Brother tactics and big government. According to TPM, the company they hired is of the extra slimey and shady variety.

This article in Roll Call describes how Google, preeminent search engine and purveyor of fun online gizmos, is courting Republicans in Washington, as part of their efforts to build up a bigger presence in DC.

Fair enough: they can't afford to be completely on the outs with what is at least for now the majority party.

But buried down deep in the article it says they've hired the DCI Group.

If you're a dirty tricks and slimey opps afficionado a chill most certainly just went down your spine.

DCI, if you're not familiar with them, is an interlocking group of companies which is the phony seed bed for most noxious astroturf organizing and general bamboozlement in contemporary politics.

So, who's got a search engine for me? Anyone?
