    I never understood what was the big deal about that line.  It's just a metaphor, why chastise the guy?  I'd probably say something similar if I was talking to a bunch of lawyers.

    I'll bet a year's pay that a few techies actually explained the Internet to Senator Stevens using that exact tube analogy.
