Part of the reason why the White House chose White House communications director Anita Dunn to be its point woman in the war on Fox News was because she could "withstand the blowback." Well, the blowback is here. Tonight on the Glenn Beck Crazy Hour, Beck showed video of Dunn talking about "two of [her] favorite political philosophers, Mao Zedong and Mother Teresa." Naturally, this set Beck off:

"She is the woman that the White House put in charge of monitoring this show, because we're smearing them, we're lying, we're making things up -- we're 'the arm of the Republican Party.' I just opened up Mao's little book here. How about this one: 'A revolution is not a dinner party... a revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence, in which one party overthrows another.' .... Mao Zedong, the little red book, led to millions of deaths... and she is not the only one in the White House.''

Uh-oh. Sounds like someone is about to get Van Jones–ed. [Chicago Tribune]
