Reminds me of this -
That fact that Wubbya will eventually have a presidential library, is a travesty. I always like to point out, if George W. was a Kennedy, they'd keep him out of politics, and build him an attic to live in instead.

If it weren't for prescription drug coverage, he'd rank right up there with the worst presidents we've ever had to endure.

BTW, that was a clever catch on the photo matchup. (Even if you found it doin' some website slumming).

And on another note: I apologize for not turning Pai's head into a watermelon. I ran out of time and couldn't get to it. Maybe someone else can do it. :p
I know you all hate on him... but you're against him on this issue without even knowing his stance. You think this 1996 Comm Act issue is related to NN (the comm act of 1996 wasn't about NN) and you're assuming his position based on that. If this issue really does reduce competition then there's a good chance Pai will agree with you not lift these rules. He has always said he is against NN because it hurt competition.

My challenge to Tech spot (and you) is to follow up on this story if Pai go against the cable companies.

I remember another conversation of ours where you said that about W.

Honestly, I am wondering whether I will see a truly great president before my life is over.

I'd like to see a follow-up no matter what way Pai goes.
