We are governed by dumbasses

Senator Ted Stevens (R – Alaska) hips us to the 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.

They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It’s not a truck.

It’s a series of tubes.

God help us. Libertarians are fond of saying that the Bill of Rights should stop after the first five words: Congress shall make no law. While that may sound extreme, there’s a certain wisdom in keeping a moron like Ted Stevens away from any law-making.
