The Wisdom Of Senator Stevens

The senator’s gaffes — “an Internet was sent by my staff at 10 o’clock in the morning on Friday; I just got it yesterday” — are not just oratorical blunders akin to Dan Quayle’s spelling of “potatoe.” As chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation, he has significant sway over telecommunications policies.

That may explain why his comments circulated so quickly through the Internet (or “tubes”), especially among those in favor of a net neutrality provision. Adam Green, blogging on the DailyKos, sarcastically called Mr. Stevens “one cool dude” and said he had “genuine information superhighway cred.”

It's all funny until election day, Senator Stevens.
