Lessig on Presidents, Policy, Politics, and A Little Note on Torture.

Excellent and nuanced look at why one should vote Kerry here.

I find the nuanced reasoning compelling, but I also find it interesting that Lessig allows that more powerful than any reasoning, to him, is the outrage that under Bush, America became America The Torturer.

Bush will always be the Torture President. The man who made us all accomplices to torture in the name of America.

If Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay and the other loci of America-sponsored torture don’t fill you with outrage, there is something wrong with you.
