Mao's Biggest Fan

White House Communications Director Anita Dunn tells school children that one of her two favorite philosophers is Mao Tse Tung.

He was also one of the greatest mass murderers in history. What is it that Obama's communication's director finds so admirable about Mao?

And here's another question: Would her gushing endorsement of such a tyrant prevent her from ever being the owner of an NFL franchise?

UPDATE: As to the question of what Dunn finds so admirable about Mao, she said that when he was asked how he intended to defeat his enemies he said, "You know, you fight your war and I'll fight mine."

But that's not a philosophy. That's not even a strategy. That's just telling someone to mind his own business. His philosophy was that of a Marxist totalitarian tyrant. So, again, what's to admire? The fact that he succeeded in becoming the head of one of the most blood-thirsty regimes in human history? That's admirable? Well, I guess it is if you're a supporter of communist ideals and understand that you have to break a few eggs to make an omelet.

Let me open your eyes a little bit, this has to do with a story Mort Kondracke, excutive editor of Roll Call told about Daniel Patrick Moynihan. It seems that Moynihan was running for reelection and was at the time, a staunch anti-communist. Tim Russert told Daniel Patrick Moyihan that he could not be an anti-communist and a democrat at the same time, if he wanted to be reelected. Moyihan then dropped his anti-communist stance. This not only says someting about a politicians dedication to service, which there was none in this case but it gives some real insight to the democratic party it's self.
