See the world in red and blue

Senators Rick Santorum (R-PA) and Hillary Clinton (D-AKNY) are turning U2 concerts into political fundraisers.

Other politicians are also trying to cash in on U2's fame and success:

  • At a recent Democratic National Committee dinner, Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA) proclaimed he was into U2 "all the way back to Boy."

  • At a recent press conference, Senator Bill Frist (R-TN) vehemently defended both his innocence in the face of charges that he traded stock based on inside information and that October is a largely underappreciated album.

  • House Majority Whip Roy Blunt (R-TX) was recently photographed trying to offer his Blue Blockers to Pope Benedict.

  • President George W. Bush recently opined that Bono deserves a Nobel Peace Prize almost as much as Harriet Miers.
