I watched the video played on Glenn Beck's Fox show today of Anita Dunn saying one of her favorites philosophers is Mao while she was speaking to high schoolers.
Holy crap, and just as I am reading Paul Johnson's book Modern Times. Mao? I can understand a sophomore at Berkeley saying this, but a White House employee in charge of communications? As Beck said, she might as well have claimed "Hitler" as a favorite philosopher.
This is becoming a nightmare. Also, she seemed freaky -- I don't know what it was about her, but as she was speaking on this video, with her tongue darting out like a snake, it gave me a weird feeling -- I'm just saying.
