1. Doesn't Rupert Murdoch own WaPo and dictate its slant?

10. Yes, as pointed out above, they call her 'Kitler' :)
She's been kind of a web sensation. The story started in the UK:

11. There's a whole category of Kitler cats:
http://www.catsthatlooklikehitler.com/cgi-bin/seigmiaow...

Does your cat look like Adolf Hitler? Do you wake up in a cold sweat every night wondering if he's going to up and invade Poland? Does he keep putting his right paw in the air while making a noise that sounds suspiciously like "Sieg Miaow"? If so, this is the website for you.
