    Aubrey O'Day Calls Hitler & Castro 'Brilliant' Men

    Former Danity Kane member Aubrey O'Day caused a stir Monday night during a heated debate on FOX News' "The Sean Hannity Show," when she referred to both Fidel Castro and Adolf Hitler as "brilliant" men.

    "As someone who has met [Castro]... I met him and worked with him while I was in Cuba. I'm not defending his behavior, but in many instances, but I do have to say, I will 100% agree, he's an incredibly brilliant man, he has outlived tons of our presidents," the singer - who visited Cuba during her Semester At Sea program - said on the conservative talk show.

    I guess she'd rather the old term "dumb blond" to go unchallenged than to prove it wrong.

    Fucking ignorant bitch.

    Naw, Great Man does not mean that the guy (or gal) is great ethically. It means the guy or gal had tremendous impact on the world. Hitler and Castro (as well as Cheney), although all walking somewhere on the dark side of humanity, have had Great Effect of mankind.

    Thus, they are Great Men.

    I know who Castro is, but I don't know Danity Kane. Besides, who cares what she thinks? Is it a she?

    "Tremendous impact" is your criteria for a "great man?" So I guess you'd also put someone like Jefferey Dawmer or Charles Manson on your "great man" list.

    Are you for real, or do you say weird shit like that just as a joke?

    Hitler was so 'brilliant' he laid waste a continent, killed millions ended up dead and what he worked his life for is reviled and outlawed.

    Castro is hardly 'brilliant,' he simply took advantage of the super powers of the cold war by playing one against the other, and it didn't benifit Cuba, which is still an impovrished place, who have suffered a lot from Castro sending cuban troops to Africa and south america at the bidding of the Soviets.

    Hitler was certainly brilliant. He was also insane, which was fortunate, as he sunk himself with his own insanity. Someone can be brilliant and still be evil and psycho. I don't understand the big issue with what this person said?
