This morning, Texan Republican Senator Ted Cruz tweeted something mighty stupid. And sometimes, the only proper response is straight up comical derision. That’s where the Oatmeal comes in.
Following US President Obama’s recent backing of net neutrality and calling on regulators to treat broadband as a utility, Cruz clicked into partisan mode with this tweet:
“Net Neutrality” is Obamacare for the Internet; the Internet should not operate at the speed of government.
— Senator Ted Cruz (@SenTedCruz) November 10, 2014
That spurred The Oatmeal to explain to Ted Cruz exactly what Net Neutrality is, and it pretty much nails it.
