Is Google crazy enough to buy Yahoo?

Is Google crazy enough to buy Yahoo? According to multiple sources, Google is potentially looking into buying Yahoo.
The search giant would partner with two private-equity firms to fund the purchase, which would be only for Yahoo's core business.

While the talks are early stage and Google could just be seeing what the selling price is for a rival, there is little chance a deal would pass anti-trust regulators, regardless.

Google is said to be looking into the deal as it would love to sell ads on Yahoo's web sites, some of which, like Yahoo Finance and Mail bring in hundreds of millions of visitors per month.

Yahoo, which is up for sale after dumping their CEO and seeing their stock struggle, has seen a rumored plethora of potential suitors including AOL, Alibaba and Microsoft.

It won't happen by law.

it'll be blocked just as MS was blocked from buying Yahoo and MS wasn't even 2nd on the search engine top ten list at the time.

It very well might get blocked, but microsofts bid was rejected by yahoo, not blocked by the government. Unless I'm misunderstanding you.
