Hey Official Washington - U2 Is Public Relations Rock and Roll!

Greenmountainpolitics1 does not casually comment on 21st century culture. I haven't the time or the stomach for that.

However, super group U2 demands comment.


Because they ROCK.

But, more importantly, U2 rocks in the name of halting world poverty and AIDS:

What's not to like?

Bono, U2's lead singer, has done more to help the world's less fortunate than 99.9% of the rest of us.

But, when Bono came to Congress earlier this month seeking help for the world's poor, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi told him that they could not help him:

Reid and Pelosi are Democrats. Aren't they supposed to be men and women of the people?

They can throw a 4-day "coronation celebration" at $1,000/per person to celebrate the Democratic take over of Congress, but can do nothing to help the poor and those afflicted with AIDS?

Which brings us to our post's picture of Bono with Republican U.S. Senator Jesse Helms.

Republican Senator Helms is certainly not rock and roll.

However, even he found a way to break bread with Bono:

And, his nationwide favorables took a huge jump when he did.

Helms quipped, "Both of our public images took a hit when we had lunch together. We must be doing something right."

Then they got down to doing the people's business.

What's up with Nancy and Harry?

They need to get with the program.
