OK, this post by comic and Web humorist Andy Borowitz is a joke, but I like it and Yahoo CEO Jerry Yang could use a good laugh about now.

Best line: “A spokesman for Microsoft at the company’s Redmond, Wash. headquarters acknowledged that the company was ‘disappointed’ to lose Yahoo to Sen. Obama, but added, ‘We can’t really be mad at him, because we love him so.’ “
