Net Neutrality

I'm sure I'm late to the party with this one but I haven't noticed it blogged anywhere until spotting it at craigblog. Ted Stevens, Senior Senator for the state of Alaska (he's 83) and President Pro Tempore of the United States Senate explained why he voted against a 'net neutrality' amendment to a telecoms bill - 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?
It doesn't surprise me that a Senator is so obviously unfamiliar with the technology. What is amusing is that his staff let him come out with this.
And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck.
Good one!

UPDATE: Jon Stewart said it good on the daily show.
