you know, only Republicans eat with other Republicans. No Democrats allowed.

You people in the Bush/Bono lunch thread ought to be ashamed of yourselves.

Like it or not, Bush is in the White House, and if Bono needs to network for his causes, the road leads to Bush.

1. Was about to say...
Now that we're in the right forum, I totally agree. Bono did lunch with the Dems too. What do people want?

3. I'll tell you what people want.
Someone who eats lunch with the Democrats, and not the Republicans, that's what people want!

7. Yeah, well how about we win some offices, then we can be everyone's
favorite.

Until then, don't be shocked if people begrdgingly deal with Republicans. At the moment they are the only game in town.

2. Yes, Bono is OUT!
He is no longer allowed to be progressive! We all know how everyone is clamoring to be one, so we have to be selective.

4. Also, there is /no way/ Bono is getting my vote.
If it's between a DINO and a Republican, I'm voting third-party.

14. Bono is a DLC DINO.
So yes, he is a Republican. The two-party duopoly gives us no real choice!

12. Bono will be dining with Louis Farrakhan next
They will discuss how many abortions in Palestine that they can perform with handguns, and Bono will brag about his cover album of Laura Branigan songs he is doing right now.

This will happen, of course, at a restaurant with at least 16 screaming kids. :D

13. If a person is really determined and devoted to their cause
he or she would meet with the devil himself if it would help.

I saw the thread you mentioned and people take this kind of thing WAAAY too seriously.

15. Bono has said publicly he will talk to whatever snake it takes to
get certain issues on the world agenda - notably Africa.

16. Bless the lad, he does hang in there for what he cares about
passionately. If he didn't care about the thousands of African people starving/dying of aids he could have lunch in St. Tropez with someone intelligent. Not Bono, he dines with W. I am sure it is a sacrifice. I would not be able to keep the food down.

Besides, I saw him perform live, in a gold lame jumpsuit (Bono, not W)! He is wonderful! ( Again, Bono not W)
