I knew it wouldn’t be long before people dug up examples of Republicans quoting Chairman Mao too.
The simple fact is that Chairman Mao was a pretty perceptive political thinker. You can deplore what he did in China and still realize that not everything he wrote was the sheer embodiment of evil.
(I know, this is unthinkable to many on the right. But apparently not to Newt Gingrich.)
