S. Harper: Dalai Lama "is not a call girl"

    When Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper tried to explain in a year-end interview why he'd met the Dalai Lama in his Ottawa office, it was clear he wanted to show respect for the exiled Tibetan leader.

    Unfortunately, it didn't quite come out that way.

    "I met the Dalai Lama in my office but I meet everyone in my office. I don't know why I would sneak off to a hotel room just to meet the Dalai Lama. You know, he's not a call girl," Harper told OMNI television.

    He quickly added: "As I say, he's a respected international spiritual leader."
    Harper's chief spokeswoman did not respond to a query as to whether the prime minister regretted his choice of words in the interview, which took place on Tuesday but was embargoed until Thursday.

    His words may have come out wrong but gotta admire the guy's stones for flipping off the rest of the world by agreeing to meet the Dalai Lama.
