Serendipity

In my head, Charlie Mingus' programme for training cats to use the toilet rather than a litter tray (via Popbitch) and this article about the way in which the Telegraph legitimates and then re-markets American wingnut gossip too toxic to be touched in its original form (via the ever excellent Yorkshire Ranter;) should be linked. Unfortunately, I lack the native wit to do so; a straightforward analogy tricking your cat into shitting in the loo and tricking the American public into batshit lunacy seems to reflect badly on both cats, cat-owners, and the American public, and not be anything like hostile enough to the right-wing noise machine. Other attempts welcomed in comments.
