    but I would say it's less common than you'd expect.

But this becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Notice how the person you cited as doing good (and he did positive good in the form of net neutrality, not just getting out of the way) was appointed by the more pro-regulation party? And then the person who's in there now who's fucking it all up is from the anti-regulation party?
