  • Tubes!

    Posted by Dan from Madison on July 29th, 2008 (All posts by )

    I heard today that Senator Ted Stevens is in a bit of trouble. Honestly, I don’t know if he did anything wrong, but he looks to be under investigation for corruption of some sort.

    Stevens may be a crook, but he may very well be a good guy – I dunno. When I hear his name, I think of two things. One thing I remember about him is the bridge to nowhere.

    The other thing I think of when I hear the name Ted Stevens is the famous “series of tubes” quote, put into song masterfully by someone who has too much time on their hands. Sorry to the fans of Stevens, but whenever I hear his name, the first thing that pops into my head is – hey, that is the “series of tubes” guy!

      Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), who has been indicted on seven counts of making false statements on his financial disclosure forms, has stepped down from his post atop two committees, according to a senior GOP aide.

      So—–let me get this straight. It’s OK to to talk about internet “pipes” being clogged, bursting, etc., but NOT “tubes?” How is a “tube” materially different than a “pipe” in terms of function?
      (I count 50+ references to “pipes” in the first six pages of a Google search–at which point I stopped counting…) Perhaps this is solely due to the fact Stevens is an R and not very likable to boot? Perhaps?? Could beee, doc, could beeeee…….
