Boo freakin’ hoo.

Who cares if the Chinese government gets their panties in a wad because the US wants to give an award to a man who is fighting for religious freedom in his home country? (well, not actually in his home country, as he was forced out of Tibet in 1959 and is now waging his fight while living in India)

I don’t give two flips about what China thinks. This is the same Communist government who can’t even make safe toys for export (or, maybe they can. They just don’t want to). So, if President Bush wants to award the Congressional Gold Medal to the Dalai Lama, then get to it. And China can go suck an egg.

Ps. I know it’s more complicated than this – international relations and all. But, really, since when is it ok to bow to pressure from a Communist government with glaring human rights violations? Not to mention the fact that they’re trying to poison our kids, our pets, and our cheap-toothpaste-users…
