One wonders if Hollywood will ‘drop’ the Dalai Lama now.

After all, Freeing Tibet is one thing – but rank heresy of this sort?

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.”

There are surely limits, yes? After all, the fellow was disturbing his listeners’ religious sensibilities most harshly with a statement like that.

See The Corner, The Anchoress, and the Boston Globe*, all via Right Side of Lowell.
