    That's a heck of logical leap.

    Even women who commit adultery can be correct occasionally - was that what you meant?

    Blimey how do female politicians get any respect?

    Countless male politicians dip their wick (Two Shags, Mr Football shirt etc.) the only thing poor Edwina is remembered for is bumping uglies with Mr Dull.

    Totally true in my opinion. I want a well run government for all people's sakes.

    Exactly the same is true of nominally left wing papers like the Independent and the Daily Slaver (formerly the Grauniad). it's just that different things outrage _their_ readers!
    The left of centre broadsheets actually fact check just like their right of centre counterparts.

    A left leaning comparator of The Fail would be something like The Mirror or more likely The Morning Star.

    The decision was based in part on the reasoning in the book "Was the Cat in the Hat Black". In the Washington Post article the author of that book claims that while Dr Seuss spoke out against racism, and stories such as Horton Hears a Who is overtly anti-racists, nonetheless racist tropes did come into some of his books - The Cat in the Hat being one of them.

    Apparently it's to do with black face minstrels, and is also allegedly perpetuated in Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse. I don't see it, but I suspect it's something that would only be apparent to an American scholar, and possible only a black American scholar who has grown up within American racism.

    On a lighter note, concerning racism

    Where did they say the books were banned? They used to be the flagship books but are now not. This is because a pressure groups 'analysis' suggests the race and sex of the made up beings and talking cats was predominantly white and male. Do you know of any Thing or Grinch gender experts?
