This morning, U2 Rock Star and wanna-be policy maker, Bono, was on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” on the same platform as Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. And last week, he was featured in People, pictured with Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice and President Bush. Puh-leeze, this is a guy who constantly wears blue- or purple-lensed sunglasses in the middle of the day–including during his meetings with Rice and Bush AND on “Meet the Press” for the entire Tim Russert.
I’ve written about how misguided and ludicrous Bono’s efforts are, several times over the last several years, the best of which is “Bush’s Absurd Rock Star Advisor.” The piece details how Bono’s pie in the sky debt relief and aid program rips off U.S. taxpayers to fund terrorists, like the government of Sudan (host to Bin Laden for years) and others. Yet, he’s gotten the Prez and way too many others to buy into this ludicrous program: transferring wealth of American taxpayers and average Joes to high-living terrorist host-states and their leaders, while the people continue to starve. Talk about seeing the world through rose- (or blue-) colored glasses. Instead of asking us to give OUR money, not his, to fund this, why doesn’t Bono give up his expensive tinted CHANEL glasses.
