Lessig supports Obama!

Read all about it.

I, of course, love his attack on the Democrats' (or rather, Clinton's) strategy of "tiny speak", or saying as little as possible to offend as few as possible. (The Republicans, on the other hand, are sticking with the time-honored strategy of loudly and apparently unselfconsciously proclaiming painfully obvious untruths, which is usually pretty much a home-run, electorally. Now imagine what could happen for the Democrats if they mixed bold rhetoric with a policy position that was something less than an assault on reality or a transparent recourse to obscurantism?)
