Video Of Ted Stevens Wanting To Switch Between Phones "As I Ride My Motorcycle"

Here’s the video clip of Senator Ted Stevens being a crazy old man about wireless number portability.

In it, he says, “Is it coming? Why shouldn’t I be able to say, just by a little switch on my phone at home that’s wired, I’m going off on the wireless now, I want to use this as I ride my motorcycle…I’m bad. Pardon me.”

We feel bad because you know he’s really trying (and for once, completely right) but a guy who can’t understand the difference between carburetor and a router shouldn’t be on a committee overseeing the internets, but we guess that’s just part of our government’s interest in appointing the least competent people possible in oversight positions.
