“Om” is no longer the mantra we associate with Buddhist temples. Rather, the one uttered by Governor George W. Bush that was played over and over on at least 23 network or cable news programs in March. Although variants abound, the mantra in its purest form goes like this: “It’s amazing that Vice President Gore is talking about campaign funding [reform], when he’s the person who went to a Buddhist temple to raise money from people who made a vow of poverty.”

Remind me, again, why Bush is hammering Al Gore, Jr., for that visit to the Buddhist temple in 1996.
