Put this line in your "$HOME/.inputrc" file:
"\M-[2~": paste-from-clipboard # Insert
The escape sequence generated by the "Insert" key happens to be the same
for both the console and RXVT.
Note that readline's "past-from-clipboard" stops before the first newline
in the clipboard.

That's good for some pasting jobs. Under Linux, I also have a function
to paste so I don't have to go reaching for the mouse. I haven't figured
out how to
do that with cygwin yet, though.
But, it might be useful to mention in this context that you can also
$ note < /dev/clipboard
(note: note is my script)
