Wile E. Coyote, Internet Genius

You gotta go read this over at Wired. According to Senator Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, here's how the internet works:
And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck.

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.
You gotta go read the rest of this drivel, and if you're at all tech-savvy (which you probably are, since you're actually ON the internet, something I'm pretty sure Ted ain't real familiar with), you'll be as irritated as I am.

And these are the people who get to make decisions about how the internet is run? For that matter, who get to make decisions about ANYTHING AT ALL that affects ME?!?

I don't care if the doofus has an R or a D or an X by his name, he's still a bleepin' idiot.
