@cmranapia I am not a rape apologist. Please retract that ridiculous statement.

So yes, Keith Olbermann had a chit chit with Michael Moore the other night and Moore described Julian Assange’s sexual assault charges in a very incredible, not at all good way! Now it’s war, reasonably—spearheaded by Awl pal Sady Doyle on behalf of, you know, women who press rape charges and are met with scorn, suspicion and undermining—with Olbermann totally unwilling to understand why people are upset.
In any event, Julian Assange’s bail was granted and then denied by a higher court:
In dismissing the appeal by prosecutors, the judge said he also accepted arguments by the prosecution that many of those who were posting bail for Mr. Assange were doing so because they supported WikiLeaks and might regard “absconding as a right and justified act” to keep the beleaguered Web site running.
