The Semiconductor Industry Association Honors Trio

The trio that chants together gets honored together. Here is the lead sentence of Senator Cornyn's bio from his website:

John Cornyn was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2002. In a short period of time, he earned a national reputation as a forceful and articulate voice for Texas values. As we know, Congressman George Miller parrots Texas education values.

Interesting, John Cornyn's official biography does not mention "education"; it does say he's a member of the Senate Republican High Tech Task Force. Prior to his election to the Senate, Cornyn was a real estate agent and Texas Attorney General.
