Yes, thats right, possums, Anita Dunn, former Obama aide who told a group of high school students that Mao Tse Tung was one of her two favorite political philosophers , has been hired by Tory hopeful David Cameron  to help him prep for tomorrows televised debate with Nick Clegg and Gordon Brown. The British election hangs in the balance. Ms. Dunn had helped Obama de-posh himself during the campaign, showing him how to mimic looks of concern and concentration, how and when to frown, when to smile, and the makeover seemed to work. At any rate, Obama won. Can Ms. Dunn do the same for Mr. Cameron? Lets see.

Need to exterminate 50 (some say 100) million people? That was never done before, but Mao figured out a way to do it. Ms. Dunn referred to this genocidal maniac as a political philosopher. But really, as I noted when this story broke last October, Mao was not a philosopher but (in Leszek Kolakowskis phrase) one of the greatest, if not the very greatest, manipulator of large masses of human beings in the twentieth century.
His violent peasant revolution mouthed Marxist slogans, but at its core was less Marxist than a particularly rebarbative form of anarchic and anti-intellectual tyranny.

LOL...Waxman. I saw another thread today where they had the William Shatner picture in the airplane with Waxman on the wing...
There was a ping for Waxman on the Wing!
Mao was an evil bastard with green teeth, putrid breath and a penchant for twelve year old girls.
That SOB should have been hung up like Mussolini.
Mao is doing the Eternal Burn.
Her Human Costume keeps slipping...
That is good to consider in light of the millions of people who ended up with a bullet in the back of the neck.
