It's time for Dunn to go

Victor Davis Hanson in a Corner post at NRO Now We Know Why He Passed on the Dalai Lama writes:
I am not a big fan of saying that officials should resign for stupid remarks. But interim White House communications director Anita Dunn's praise of Mao Zedong as a "political philosopher" is so unhinged and morally repugnant, that she should hang it up, pronto.
I'm with the professor and the many others that have called for Anita Dunn to go. For every person that died in a war in the 20th century, four died at their government's hands (see: Death by Government by R. J. Rummel). Mao Zedong is responsible for about 70 million deaths. Much like other communist states, those deaths occurred in the shadows and remain largely ignored by the American left. Anita, it's time to go.
