Now I finally know why I never liked him

I never liked the Dalai Lama.  I felt I ought to, but I just didn’t.  Since I’m a bit of a contrarian, I wondered if I disliked him because I was being told to worship at the shrine of his wonderfulness.  Now I’m thinking that I was just picking up on the fact that he’s an idiot:

Midway through the conversation, His Holiness, much to their surprise, told them “as far as socio-political beliefs are concerned, I consider myself a Marxist … But not a Leninist,” he clarified.

With that one sentence, he managed to reduce himself to the level of a guy in Dachau who hates the Nazis but thinks National Socialism is a good idea.  As Bugs Bunny would say, what a maroon.
