Senators Herb Kohl (D-WI) and Orrin Hatch (R-UT) want to make one thing very clear about Google's proposed $3.1 billion DoubleClick merger, currently under FTC review. OMFG, WTF? In a joint open letter to the Federal Trade Commission, the pair acknowledge that no, they don't understand much about the deal or its implications. But from what they've heard, the pair thinks the FTC should, you know, continue to take a good look at it. That's one way to take credit for the outcome, whoever wins.
