Still think the Dalai Lama walks on water?

If you do, I have the cure for your delusion right here:

Audience member: “Can you give us an example of a leader we should look up to as a positive influence?”

Dalai Lama (after thinking for a few seconds): “President Bush. I met him personally and liked him very much. He was honest and straightforward, and that is very important. I may not have agreed with all his policies, but I thought he was very honest and a very good leader.”

No shit. He actually said that.

Bonus: He also handed over Tibet to Chairman Mao.

Suddenly, his idea of who’s a “good leader” makes a lot more sense, eh? Sick sense, maybe…but sense nonetheless.

  3. Hmmmm, I hear His Holiness likes to shoot birds (a very un-Buddhistic hobby). And Bartcop calls Dubya the Giggling Killer. How appropriate, two giggling killers.
    But I kind of like the swine flu angle, too!

    They share a birthday you know.
    The romanticism that has been wrapped around Tibet’s old feudal theocracy is unfortunate, as Lamas were as corrupt as any Catholic clergy.
