This week on Politically Indirect:

• Obama's tax cut extension: necessary compromise or selling out to the man?

• Julian Assange: free speech martyr or deviated sex pervert?

• Los Angeles' Subway in the general direction of the sea: good public works or a sign of bloated government?

And short ends: Berkeley considers naming Bradley Manning and American hero, Pinterest takes up Olga's time, and Fifa chooses Qatar to host the 2022 World Cup.
