As Yahoo's (YHOO) board meets over how to deal with Scott Thompson's resume embellishment ahead of Dan Loeb's deadline, Dan Lyons offers a contrarian stance. Phony CS degree or not, Thompson is a 54-year-old ex-PayPal CEO, Lyons argues, and his critics have an axe to grind with both him and Yahoo. "Facebook is a cool kid. So is Apple. Yahoo is the loser kid that nobody likes."

    Yes, where is Jon Corzine ? He is a crook and should be in jail.
    must have some contacts in high places.

    I like the analogy. I just hope that the loser kid is actually a socially awkward genius and not a future meth addict.
