You can watch Stanford Law prof Larry Lessig's five-minute video explaining why he's decided not to pursue the 12th Congressional District seat vacated by the late Tom Lantos. Or you can read the snappy summary by my anti-free-culture overlords at The Wall Street Journal: "He had no chance of winning against fellow Democrat Jackie Speier, a highly popular former state senator who was endorsed by Lantos shortly before his death." Pretty funny how The Internets thought they were going to blog and tweet Lessig into Washington, without first finding the 12th District on a map.
