And This Proves … WHAT?

Bugdoodle, flapjack looney Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska is upset that the FBI and the IRS are searching his home in Alaska. He is undoubtedly furious that a search warrant was obtained.

At about the same time, and showing his keen grasp of the subtleties and nuances of modern politics, Stevens hit on a strategy to “strike back” at LEAST as effective as his description of the Internet as “a series of tubes.”

Gee whiz, Senator Stevens, what EXACTLY is your point, here?

Bridge to Nowhere?
$320 Million

The Internet?
A series of tubes

Putting a hold on the ethics bill to protest being criminally investigated?

This stuff almost writes itself.
