RED SMEAR AT ‘MORN, DUNN TAKE WARNING
FOX QUOTE: And then the third
lesson and tip actually come from
two of my favorite political
philosophers, Mao Zedong and
Mother Teresa -- not often coupled

which is, you're going to make
In 1947, when Mao Zedong was being challenged within his own party on his plan to
basically take China over, Chiang Kai-shek and the Nationalist Chinese held the cities, they
had the army, they had the air force, they had everything on their side. And people said,
"How can you win? How can you do this? How can you do this against all of the odds
against you?" And Mao Zedong said, you know, "You fight your war, and I'll fight mine."
And think about that for a second. You know, you don't have to accept the definition of
how to do things, and you don't have to follow other people's choices and paths, OK? It is
about your choices and your path. You fight your own war. You lay out your own path. You
figure out what's right for you. You don't let external definition define how good you are
internally. You fight your war. You let them fight theirs.
Everybody has their own path. And then Mother Teresa, who, upon receiving a letter from
a fairly affluent young person who asked her whether she could come over and help with
that orphanage in Calcutta, responded very simply: "Go find your own Calcutta." OK? Go
find your own Calcutta. Fight your own path. Go find the thing that is unique to you, the
challenge that is actually yours, not somebody else's challenge.

"[I]s it a concern to any
American that so many people
now in and around this
administration and this
president seem to love a
dictator? Here's our White
director, Anita Dunn, standing
in front of a group of
graduating high school
students and praising him.“

Dunn also quoted Mother
Theresa but nobody accused
her of being a saint
Comrades Reed & Bush
In a recent phone interview with The Phoenix Gazette, Reed
said that the war metaphor is apt. "Mao Tse-Tung said
politics is war without bloodshed," he said. "Clearly, there
are some metaphors that sit nicely with politics."
"It's like guerrilla warfare. If you reveal your location, all it does is
allow your opponent to improve his artillery bearings. It's better to
move quietly, with stealth, under cover of night. ... It comes down
to whether you want to be the British army in the Revolutionary
War or the Viet Cong. History tells us which tactic was more

Here is who I put on my "book
cabinet": I got Alan Dershowitz. He's
opinionated, obnoxious and at times-
when he's not talking about the OJ
Simpson case-he makes a good point.
Let's see, let's put him in a room
with... Adolf Hitler. I'd love to see
those guys go at it. So next: Hitler's
By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one
can make a people see even heaven as hell or an
extremely wretched life as paradise.

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people
will eventually come to believe it.

Newt Gingrich (1990),
"Language: A Key
Mechanism of Control"
As you know, one of the key points in the GOPAC tapes is that "language matters." . . . .
As the tapes have been used in training sessions across the country and mailed to
candidates we have heard a plaintive plea: "I wish I could speak like Newt."
That takes years of practice. But, we believe that you could have a significant impact on
your campaign and the way you communicate if we help a little. That is why we have
created this list of words and phrases.
This list is prepared so that you might have a directory of words to use in writing literature
and mail, in preparing speeches, and in producing electronic media. The words and
phrases are powerful. Read them. Memorize as many as possible. And remember that like
any tool, these words will not help if they are not used.
