Yet Another Columbian on the Obama Team

Written by

The University of Havana-North, not content with having one of its own in the oval office, continues to add alumni to the new administration. This time, the post is chairman of the FCC, which has been in censorship overdrive ever since Janet-Jackson-boob-gate, and the nominee is Julius Genachowski, CC ’85.

Genachowski not only overlapped with Obama’s two years at Columbia, but also was his Harvard law school classmate, working under Obama at the Harvard Law Review. He has already served as General Consul Counsel to the FCC in the mid 90s, but is in fact best known for his technology experience, including “spearheading Obama’s online campaign strategy, which used social networking and other tools to spread Obama’s campaign message and raise record campaign contributions.”

Bwog hopes he will at least stop the censors calling “fellatio a trouser-friendly kiss.”

    awesome choice. imagine an FCC chair who cares more about enhancing social connectivity than enforcing victorian values.

    and bwog, it's spelled general _counsel_. a consul is a diplomat.

  2. Don't forget

    With Billary hitting up the cabinet, caroline Kennedy, a columbia law alum, may be hitting up DC as well. Though not an obama appointment, she's still a bystander of Barry's election. Columbia Alums are taking over New York, the nation, and pretty soon...the WORLD!

    This is really good news.

  4. As usual

    Columbia has to step in and clean up the mess Yale created.

      actually, he has to clean up Kevin Martin's mess, the current FCC Chairman (unc/harvard law) who has been very anti-competitive and stifled competition in the telecommunications industry. he's the reason you pay cable companies 2 grand a year for cable/internet
