In Response to Howard Dean
Tuesday, July 15, 2003
As you may or may not be aware, former Vermont governor and current presidential candidate Howard Dean is currently guest-blogging on Prof. Lessig's blog. Today, he stated the following (the html was cut and pasted from Lessig's page.)
That's a pretty damning accusation. Let's check out the evidence he's linked to back it up. Following the link gets us:
This isn't evidence. It's a petition that lets Dean-droids express their agreement with what he says. It's as if repetition will somehow make what they say more true. He chose to link to this instead of something with actual evidence (or even claims) that could be accepted or refuted. It's hard to fact-check someone who isn't willing to present us with facts.

Perhaps you should have looked to the link 'Read Gov. Howard Dean, M.D.'s statement' at the bottom of the petition. Not only does it give you more information, but it also links to several papers and charts detailing more of the 'evidence' you are looking for.
