Sen. Stevens Explains the Internet

Senator Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) explained why he voted against the amendment and gave an amazing primer on how the internet works.

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?
Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the internet commercially

I look forward to his explanation of polymerase chain reactions.

I have tried five different lines to end this, and none of them made me anything but morose. Basically, the guy’s an idiot, lacks even a fundamental understanding of the technology he helps regulate, and for some reason isn’t shunned by thinking people.

Dork. Not smart enough to be a nerd.
