Canada’s PM: Dalai Lama ‘is not a call girl’

Harper adds in TV interview ‘he’s a respected international spiritual leader’

OTTAWA - 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....

Harper's chief spokeswoman did not respond to a query as to if the prime minister regretted his choice of words in the interview.

What, so he could come to a country with an intelligent and articulate president?

Well if this is the case of tongue slippage, as I believe it is, the question becomes does Prime Minister Harper often sneak out to hotels to meet "Call Girls" ?!
