I’m suspicious of anyone quoting Mao. It’s of a piece of an overall radical chic that we observe in the hangers-on and supporters of Obama. It’s a troubling thing, frankly.

I’m not so suspicious of quotes, but I am of philosophies. I seem to remember a huge flap regarding GW Bush announcing that his favorite philosopher was Jesus Christ. Now, given some of the pandering that he did to the religious right, it begs a question here. Do favorite philosophers matter?
