Kevin Drum highlights Grover’s thinly-veiled threats to the MPAA. Now the MPAA’s lobbying agenda is not what I would call an instance of pure evil, per se, but it is quite pernicious. It seems likely to me that the GOP will still control congress in 2005, but I’ve been hoping that doesn’t happen. Now, perhaps, we have a reason to hope it does. No more international agreements on the free exchange of goods held hostage to draconian intellectual property agreements! No more efforts to destory any technological progress that might lead someone, somewhere to download a film off the internet! Is it really possible that Grover Norquist could accomlish something good for the world? I have my doubts, but maybe — just maybe.
Meanwhile, Dan Glickman?
