Official Google Blog: Yahoo! and the future of the Internet

"This hostile bid was announced on Friday, so there is plenty of time for these questions to be thoroughly addressed. We take Internet openness, choice and innovation seriously. They are the core of our culture. We believe that the interests of Internet users come first -- and should come first -- as the merits of this proposed acquisition are examined and alternatives explored."

I'm actually surprised to see any Google opposition at all since I think the merger will/would be a monumental disaster.

Come to think of it though, I guess that's not e very good reason to be in favor of something. It would in fact be better if our laws against anti-competitiveness actually worked and we didn't have to rely on companies blowing their own extremities off.
