ZNGA) CEO Mark Pincus look like dynamic rhetoricians. We all remember last summer. We all remember Hastings' horrific YouTube video where he introduced Qwikster. And we all remember the spoofs that followed from Saturday Night Live to a great one by Conan that I must have missed: Hastings can come off like an aloof Keystone cop on occasion. That's what the public remembers him for. While much of the hate has worn off, it would come storming back if he showed his face again as the bearer of bad news. For the record, I don't think the guy deserved what he got last year when he raised prices and split DVD. He took some viciousness and took it well. I was a bear long before those well-publicized missteps, moves that really didn't phase me much one way or another, as ill-advised as they were.
