The Internet... "It's a series of tubes"

For this week's comic relief I give you Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska.

Yep, it's simply amazing that tubes... I mean people... can actually be this friggin' stupid...

It's a series of tubes, you know.

The Internet... "It's a series of tubes."

No, Ted, YOU are a tube. And you're totally clogged.

The scary thing is that this moron is the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation which is in charge of all Senate matters relating to, among other things, communications and commerce!

Since this taping, many writers and commentators mockingly cited several of Ted Stevens' total misunderstandings of Internet technology, pointing out that his speech showed that he had apparently formed very strong opinions on a topic which he knows very little about!

Now for the funny stuff...

    You're hysterical! Thanks for posting this up. And yeah, it's too bad that this doof is in charge of ANYTHING! What a dipshit.

  2. Glad you enjoyed the humor. Hope it also gets people thinking more about issues and how important it is to voice your opinions and exercise your rights...

    Because sometimes those we entrust to serve our best interests are grossly underqualified to do so.
