The Bono factor

Another example of the Liberal push for a peripheral route to persuade voters is the recruitment of Bono, the lead singer of U2.

Bono is to appear (cue fanfare) at the federal government’s AIDS spending announcement to make a beautiful day for Paul Martin and to provide elevation for him (and his mysterious ways) in the polls for the upcoming election which, as Mr. Martin tells us, will occur in a little while. The One party asserts that it is not stuck in a moment and will be in power until the end of the world (or until the last night on Earth) even though voters are numb from Adscam. Do the Liberals really think that Canadians haven’t been paying attention and are just staring at the sun? Paul Martin has said that he’ll get to the bottom of the sponsorship scandal, however, he still hasn’t found what he’s “looking” for.

Seriously Bono, please stick to music and stay out of Canadian politics.

And now, some Bono quotes:

“My heroes are the ones who survived doing it wrong, who made mistakes, but recovered from them” — Bono

“The less you know, the more you believe” — Bono
