11:35 Assange should re-make the Stones’ hit with Lady Gaga and call it "Under My Thumb Drive."
11:25 Michael Moore with lengthy protest letter to Sweden — also digs out from charges he doesn’t take rape charges seriously. "Unless you have the evidence (and it seems if you did you would have issued an arrest warrant by now), drop the extradition attempt and get to work doing the job you’ve so far refused to do: Protecting the women of Sweden."

2:15 Ha, friend notes that now Assange has to really mind his manors.
2:10 Clint Hendler (see below) with scoop from Keller talk: Times has "basically done the stories we have planned to do" from the cables, but says 3-4 more in the works. Why? Guardian still running every day and quarter million more cables? Nothing good in them, or what?
2:00 Huh? @ClintHendler of CJR just tweeted that in talk Bill Keller, exec ed of NYT, "clears something up: says the NYT got the Iraq and Afghanistan documents from WikiLeaks at the same time." It’s been lost said, without being challenged, that the TImes got them from The Guardian. UPDATE NOTE: I got this wrong, it turns out, as I confused with latest batch, not the earlier ones this year, sorry.

Olbermann, hit for putting "rape" in quotes, had also just tweeted: "The quote marks were in Bianca Jagger’s original tweet. I retweeted it as is, per Twitter etiquette."
