Quote of the day

If you don't love George W. Bush, it's probably because you're an awful person.

The National Review's Jay Nordlinger, writing about a recent talk by the Dalai Lama at which he expressed his admiration for former President Bush:

In my experience -- and I'm just generalizing here -- the better the person, the more positive he is about George W. Bush. Certainly the less snarky and narrow. Most of the people I admire most, admire the 43rd president. (Please note that I said "most of the people," not "all of the people.") This is particularly true of those who know something about tyranny, and the need to resist it: e.g., the Dalai Lama.

Clearly, most Americans are not good people.
