Well hello, Dalai!

Pelosi Meets with Dalai Llama, Offers Support

US Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi made one of the highest-ranking U.S. official visits ever to Dharamsala, India, the exile home of the Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Llama, today.

While standing next to the Dalai Llama, she denounced "China's oppression of people in Tibet." [....] This visit by 10 members of Congress... was planned long before the current protests in Tibet began.

But Pelosi said, "Little did we know, we would be coming at such a sad time. Perhaps it was our karma...."

Much to enjoy here. There's the ecumenical Pelosi talking to a Buddhist about "karma" -- all these little brown people and their strange religions, much of a muchness, y'know -- and then there's ABC news apparently believing that His Holiness is a South American camelid. There's the slight melodious ping! as Pelosi, like a pebble flung from little David's slingshot, bounces off the steel hull plates of the Chinese dreadnought.

I feel sorry for the Dalai Lama. Fourteen incarnations and he's come down to photo-ops with the likes of Pelosi. Next time around he may really be a llama, which would probably be an improvement.
