Well...I guess this is probably just another slick manuever designed to win the man a few more votes, but I'll give him credit for being willing to stand up to Bill Gates and, by extension, most major software companies.
Here are a few high points of the interview:
Q: "Lately, you have been characterizing Kerry as a 'tax and spender,' while he insists that you only represent big business interests. Can you comment on this issue?"
Bush: "Certainly. Well, it just isn't true. I mean, he's into heavy taxing, and he's into heavy spending, but that part about me is just a lie. For instance, my home computer is running a version of Linux, and I've been talking to congress to invest some of the state's money in the open software movement. What Microsoft is doing just isn't right. Bill Gates has more money than the entire Bush dynasty. I'm fighting to keep the internet a site of free culture. I'm bloggeling. That doesn't sound like big business interests to me. I've asked Lawrence Lessig to be on my cabinet next term, but he's apparently so interpellated by the radical ideology of the left that he can't see the reality of the situation."
