Bono Does It Right on O'Reilly

If pop and politics are going to mix, Bono does it well. Tonight on the O'Reilly show he spoke eloquently and very intelligently about the African AIDS crisis.

He said he no longer roots for anyone in American elections. He had good words for both the President and John Kerry. He came off balanced but passionate.

I was really impressed with his ability to articulate the connection between the African AIDS crisis and the War on Terror. His sophistication on this issue is embarassing to celebs like Natalie Maines whose Bush-bashing is just reflexive pandering to the elites she hopes to impress and betrays her obvious ignorance of the issues.

UPDATE: See a partial transcript of the interview here.

UPDATE II : Here's a link to DATA, Bono's AIDS fighting organization.
