Morning Newsdome: China's not cool enough to sit with Hillary Clinton at the popular kids table

Posted By on Mon, Dec 6, 2010 at 11:02 AM

>> WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is using a new cable of uncensored documents about BP and Guantánamo Bay as a kind of "insurance" if he's arrested or if WikiLeaks is shut down. He has distributed the material and protected it with a 256-digit password that he will release if provoked. Feisty! (the New York Post)

>> Hillary Clinton will meet today with the foreign ministers of South Korea and Japan to discuss North Korea, but are leaving out the other six-party countries Russia and China. The State Department said "China should not view this as a snub," but they're feeling pretty unpopular right now. (CNN)

>> After female Iranian athletes won medals in the 16th Asian Games in China, a senior Muslim cleric in Iran has denounced the participation of women in sports as a product of the West's "dirty" culture. Filthy whores! (Miami Herald)

>> After vicious debate this weekend, it looks like Bush-era tax cuts will be extended across all income levels in exchange for prolonging unemployment benefits that have already begun to expire. Moby does not approve. (the New York Times, NY Magazine)

>> And finally: Though New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie had been skeptical of the medical-marijuana bill that the previous governor signed into law, Christie has now agreed to six growing and distribution sites in the state and medical marijuana could hit the market in just a few months. Thanks to you, Chris Christie, I predict a great new reality TV show coming this spring! (the New York Times)
