Wired Magazine has the Foot-in-Mouth Awards for 2006. My personal favorite:
"They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a big truck. It's a series of tubes. And if you don't understand those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and it's going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material."
-- Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) deconstructs the frustrations of (we think) file sharing, during a speech opposing net neutrality before the Senate Commerce Committee.
OK, the guy is 85 years old. Ordinarily, you'd cut him some slack. But Stevens chaired that committee -- which oversees regulation of the internet. (Emphasis in original.)
They cut out the best part of that quote when he says that his colleague emailed him the internet the other day and it took a while to get to him. :P
