On politicians and the internet, redux

It is pretty clear that politicians don’t get the net. They listen to whatever their big donors telcos tell them, but they squawk more like parakeets than African Grays.

Senator Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) may have just proven he’s the most clueless of them all.

“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?”

Ok, Ted.

I own Hans Gullickson an apology for berating him over his misunderstanding. It paled in comparison.
