I think Gen McChrystal wanted to be fired.

It's his way of saving face over his failure in Afghanistan. He's lost the war in Afghanistan and doesn't want to be there when the truth becomes apparent. After being fired, he can claim he would have won had he not been fired.

I love Lawrence Lessig, but it's kind of cute of him to present Julian Sanchez as a promulgator of Republican values. If Republicans were more like Julian Sanchez, I would think a little more highly of them as a group.

As for ACTA, I'm going to have to learn much more about that. I know it's been on the agenda, but it hasn't received much coverage. I hate to discover yet another thing I have to fight with Obama on, but it may be unavoidable.

In case anyone else is interested, Ars Technica has a new post up on the Three Strikes issue Lessig mentioned:

The news appears to be not bad (surprisingly): "Rightsholders who hoped the federal government would start running "three strikes" Internet copyright tribunals or start ordering ISPs to block websites were disappointed."

I don't get it. Glib assertions that are wrong and/or unsupported, in an attempt to make conservatives seem liberal. Is Lawrence Lessig some type of Jonah Goldberg impersonator? Are we supposed to be laughing at him?
