Anita Dunn, President Obama's Interim White House Comminications Director, publically stated that "two of my favorite political philosophers are Mao Tse Tung (a man directly responsible for the deaths of as many as seventy million Chinese people) and Mother Teresa." This should have provoked torches and pitchforks in front of the White House, but due to a lack of understanding of history created by the teachers union (a group whose campaign contributions were key to Mr. Obama's election), none was forthcoming.
