Lessig for Congress!

“… can you imagine, three people walking in
singin a bar of Alice’s Restaurant and walking out. They may think it’s an
organization. And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day, I said
fifty people a day walking in singin a bar of Alice’s Restaurant and
walking out. And friends they may think it’s a movement.
— Arlo Guthrie


Now’s your chance to jump into the Draft Larry Lessig movement at the very beginning. The group is trying to persuade Prof. Lessig to run for Congress in the 12th district, for the seat left sadly empty by the late Tom Lantos. (If Lessig doesn’t run, your contribution goes to Creative Commons.)

If there were a way to draft Lessig as chair of the FCC or as Supreme Court justice, I’d join that, too. [Tags: ]

  3. Obviously, Thomas, Lessig needs to buy saturation TV spots and come up with a catchy tag line. Of course, the only way he can pay for that is by taking lobbyist money, maybe go on a few megacorpoate board’s, and start taking steroids. It’s the way of the world, muh friend.

  4. I am sure Lessig will make a great Supreme Court judge-explaining problems with his nice video powerpoint . Sorry I can vote for any one until I become citizen next year.
