Open Thread: The Anita Dunn Monster-Saint Free Association Game
White House Communications Director Anita Dunn has famously named her two favorite political philosophers Mao tse-Tung and Mother Teresa. One of them was history’s greatest monster, the other its most recent living saint. The pair has nothing in common except that they both helped people meet God.
So, in Anita Dunn’s spirit, what associations can we make of totalitarian monsters and inspirational heroines?
How about “Adolf Hitler and Hildegard Von Bingen”?
“Leon Trotsky and Maria Von Trapp,” perhaps?
Have at it.
