Oh Noez! The Internets!1!

Ted Stevens is quite the guy, isn't he? The man in charge of regulating the internet... well, in Jon Stewart's words, "doesn't know jack shit about computers or the internet." Pretty apt description if you ask me. Warning - too funny. Don't eat or drink while watching that clip.

If you aren't familiar with Ted Stevens, this is the man who zealously pursued nearly a quarter-billion dollars in federal funding to build a bridge to nowhere, and has a habit of throwing temper tantrums on the Senate floor. (One of his most famous ones was when he refused to allow money to be diverted from the bridge to nowhere to help New Orleans during Katrina.)

Oh my gosh...

I'm sorry. I underestimated your warning and laughed so hard that I was in tears by the end of the video.

Ted Stevens is an insane lunatic. But more than that he’s a huge grifter and pork-barreller extraordinaire. $250 million for a bridge to nowhere to hurry the commute of 45 people… sure, no problem! And this guy is a conservative. My ass! Look at his Congressional record and be simply amazed at the amount of money this whiny, curmudgeonly old prick has been able to extort from American taxpayers. It’s shameful.

He's also one of the nine Republicans who refused to vote against torture. FYI.

Interesting thought:

As Speaker Pro Tempore of the Senate, Ted Stevens is third in line for the Presidency (behind Dick Cheney and House Speaker Dennis Hastert.)

Ted Stevens: just three heartbeats away...

The morale of the story: the Presidential line of succession isn't supposed to make sense - IT'S A BUNCH OF TUBES! ARGH! TUBES I TELL YOU!
