Pelosi and Reid shaft Bono

Hi Brit,

Speaking of politicians not making friends, now it seems that the new Congressional leadership have stuck it to another would be supporter.  Democrats leave Bono disappointed

It would seem that the famous rock star got the cold shoulder from Nanny Pelosi and Senate leader Harry Reid, when he tried to make sure the new power holders weren’t going to cut funding to his favorite causes.  One of those, US aid to fight AIDS and malaria in Africa, just happens to be an intuitive of President Bush’s, and perhaps that’s why the Democrats aren’t tickled with the project.  Typical liberal attitude; they’d let millions die because they’re not getting credit for the idea.  Very sad.

    I often find liberals to be very generous as long as they get credit and of course if their favorite cause can be funded with other peoples money. However, I really don’t see this to be a problem for Bono because I hear that he has a lot of personal wealth. So, come on Bono, be a stand up guy and give the American taxpayers a break just this once. Write those people in Africa a check. And yes, be generous, because that’s just the type of person you are.

    Hi LC and Merry Christmas,

    In this case, I suspect Bono can’t cover this by himself. We’re talking billions not millions. Of course, he does have lots of very rich friends that talk like they are charitable people …
