No, senator Stevens was misquoted...
Everybody in the blogosphere has heard something about Alaska's Ted Stevens calling the internet a series of tubes.
They just heard him wrong. His porn filters got turned off and he discovered the internet was a series of pubes.
(And, BTW, I think we've been unfair to Stevens. While it wasn't high traffic that delayed his E-mail -- "an internet" -- a few days, his description wasn't really that bad... for a senator.)
