"Why do I suspect a President Palin would treat Julian Assange like a halibut? ... You would think after, say, two major releases of sensitive and secret information, the U.S. government would get on the move and figure out a way to shut down Assange and protect the information. But no, WikiLeaks keeps coming up with sequels. Apparently this show will be playing at the New York Times all week. Is the entire U.S. government really powerless in the face of this hyperactive publicist who apparently thinks he should try to look like Andy Warhol?"
