    Did anyone else catch this interview with Bono, and O'Reily?
    It was on the topic of Bush's committment to aids in Africa, a cause very dear to Bono. Bono was not only singing the praises of Bush but also Jesse Helms and I think Henry Hyde? He was wearing a rosary blessed by the Pope.
    This election is making for some very interesting bedfellows! I say welcome aboard Bono!

    Even though i hardly agree with Bono, I wouldnt group him with the hollyweird protestors. He's very intelligent on the issues that are dear to him. He clearly states his views too. I respect him but i usually dont agree with him.

    That can't be the same Bono. The real Bono held a concert a few months back to salute Kennedy:

    We just need one more title that says something like "weird drunk uncle suffering from dimentia, that no one in the family acknowledges anymore, and wishes would just go away"

    It's not so bad, especially when France speaks out. I actually found I can enjoy watching them howl in outrage over Bush, because I finally cared nothing about them at all.

    Britain/Aussie/N.Z./Canada... well they can still hurt me a bit because I still think of them as friendly allies. But I relish seeing France get worked up now.
