So few people get my mixed metaphors outside the SCA.

Verizon recently issued a public statement completely reversing themselves on whether the FCC has authority to ban paid prioritization under Section 706 (position in official comments and reply comments: no. Position now: Absolutely!!! Just please don't reclassify broadband as Title II!)  and on whether they would ever try to imp'ose fast lanes (statement by counsel at trial: "but for these rules, we would be exploring such arrangements," new statement: "What? Fast Lanes? NEVER. Why, we don't even know what that would mean!")

My response: "Most cynical and insincere conversion since Henri of Navarre told the Huguenot 'So long and thanks for all the fish.'"

Blank looks ensue.

Le sigh.
