O-Bono? February 28, 2007

Posted by fitsnews in 2008 Presidential Primaries.



FITSNews – February 28, 2007 – The Chicago Tribune‘s D.C.-based political blog The Swamp is reporting that Illinois Senator “Barackarama” met yesterday with Bono, the lead singer of rock band U2 and noted global activist. From the article:

Ben LaBolt, a spokesman for Obama, said the two met for about a half hour in the senator’s personal office to discuss the ONE Campaign, a non-profit organization that the Irish rock star helped form to combat AIDS and global poverty.

“Bono was making rounds on the Hill to build support for the ONE campaign. He particularly wanted to meet with Senator Obama since he’s a member of the Foreign Relations Committee – and has been active on international poverty and global health issues,” LaBolt said.

Bono is just a straight up pimp. “Making rounds on the Hill,” yo. That’s kind of like what we do when we are up in D.C. advocating for Sweater Monkey liberation, except we usually end up talking in the personal office of the Senate custodial assistant.
