Bush and Bono ---pix->>.



Photo provided by the White House shows President Bush talking to Bono, in the Oval Office of the White House, Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2005. Bono, in town for a concert with his group U2, was invited to lunch with the president. White House press secretary Scott McClellan said the meeting at the executive residence would be a follow-up on talks he had with President Bush in July at the G-8 summit in Scotland.

4. Check Bono's body language.
It says, "I wish I weren't listening to this American cretin."

7. Bono doesn't looked too thrilled to be standing there
he's trying to get funding and sadly Bush is the current resident of the whitehouse.

14. merely touching the cretin debases him
no one should allow Little Boots to use them to polish his image.

23. Tell that to the AIDS victims Bono's trying to help
Edited on Wed Oct-19-05 09:36 PM by LittleClarkie
"Tough titty, AIDS victims. I just can't bring myself to talk to the President of the United States" (bleck, leaves a bad taste in your mouth, doesn't it... but I digress)

You deal with who you have to deal with to get the job done.

13. Bono probably gets tired of pointing out Africa to Bush on the world map
Edited on Wed Oct-19-05 04:43 PM by WildEyedLiberal
Bono (pointing to Africa): "No, Mr Bush... Africa is over *here*."

Bush: "Oh, where all those dark people come from. I get ya."

Bono: ".... yeah. So anyway, I believe it is in the interest of the world community to eliminate the staggering debts facing third-world countries in Africa, a gesture which will allow them to grow their economies and become a more equal player on the world stage-"

Bush: "Yeah yeah yeah, equality and freedom and all that good stuff. Like it, that's real nice. Real nice. Nice thing you're doing there, uh, Bono - say, can I call you Shades? Them's some nice shades you got on. I bet you did lotsa drugs out there bein' a rock star, heh? Reminds me of my good old days..."

16. Why are the Repugs attempting to connect Bono to them?
What's in it for them? Surely they don't think they are going to get the votes of U2 fans because of it?
