Ted Stevens, R-Alaska understands the Internet about as well as my cats do (maybe less).
...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.
He goes on to explain that the Internet is made up of tubes. These tubes get clogged with "enormous amounts of material" and says, "Maybe there is a place for a commercial net but it's not using what consumers use every day." (Besides explaining the Internet someone should also tell him that without consumers there would be no commerce.)
