As a graduate of Dartmouth myself, I learned that in Soviet Russia the Politburo is actually a modern version of an old-fashioned oligarchy.
Since then, and because of performing repeatedly in the creations of Bertolt Brecht, I’ve discovered that a Politburo is the traditionally Soviet word for a Communist Cosa Nostra.
However, the American Politburo, that ruling elite which is now led by Godfather Obama, instead of admiring Stalin, as you would expect?
They all look up to Mao Zedong.
Mao has ultimately become the greatest inspiration for the American Progressive Movement.
Mao is The Godfather of all Godfathers!
Surely Hollywood and its tortured geniuses would have eventually cast Marlon Brando as Mao, don’t you think?
