Mao Zedong and Mother Teresa
Comments and articles about White House Communications Director Anita Dunn's June speech are vast and various. All of them that I have seen and read deal with her commendation of Chairman Mao who followed his own path of Hope & Change while refusing to heed the naysayers.
Fair enough. But this is but one among the numerous bright and shining stars in Obama's America as he strives to enlighten the darkness that is the U.S. Nothing at all out of the ordinary in Washington.
However, I wanted to know what Mother Teresa's political philosophy was. After much time in deep meditation... (some of you know the great depth of which that usually plumbs)... it finally struck me what the Communications Czar was saying in her coupling Mao and Teresa. Mao's policies of Hope & Change killed, maimed, starved millions of people. Mother Teresa ministered to the needs of those who suffered the best she could throughout their suffering and death. The perfect complementary couple.
Ms. Dunn, your ability to communicate is simply amazing. She asked her audience for volunteers to step forward and prepare to minister to the suffering that the Obama Administration envisions for this country.
Compassionate Hope & Change.
