I Admit It. Burns is Not the Least Intelligent Member of the Senate

Wow. Wow. Via Kos, Senator Ted Stevens from Alaska explains the Internet:

There’s one company now you can sign up and you can get a movie delivered to your house daily by delivery service. Okay. And currently it comes to your house, it gets put in the mail box when you get home and you change your order but you pay for that, right.

But this service isn’t going to go through the interent and what you do is you just go to a place on the internet and you order your movie and guess what you can order ten of them delivered to you and the delivery charge is free.

Ten of them streaming across that internet and what happens to your own personal internet?

I just the other day got, an internet was sent by my staff at 10 o’clock in the morning on Friday and I just got it yesterday. Why?…

It’s a series of tubes.

And if you don’t understand those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and its going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material.

I, for one, am glad that people like Senator Stevens is making decisions about issues like net neutrality and digital rights management. It’s a series of tubes!

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.

  • I just can’t decide whether to laugh or cry. When I do decide, I’ll send an email, but I’ll be careful to do it in the middle of the night so as not to clog up the tubes…
