The politician saw the episode of Star Trek where "7 of 9" typed in a few computer commands which caused some massive electrical jolt to be emitted by the bad dude's keyboard a few light years away, knocking him out. So they immediately think that they can do the same to incapacitate those making attacks on USA govt systems :-) Of course, this means the USA government will require all the world's keyboards to be equipped with the 50,000 volt "this will shock you" devices that only the uSA government can trigger :-) In other words, the politician's words should be included in some comic book, but shouldn't be discussed seriously.
