Bono Fits Perfectly Into New York Times Elitist Op-Ed Section

You know, the only real curveball that Bono could have thrown to us in his first Op-Ed piece in The New York Times today would have been a thoughtful and sobering look at the demise of the middle class, or perhaps a statement on the changes the world economy will have on the music industry. Of course, Bono is Bono so of course his 1000+ word article is about what its like being rich and Bono is 2009. Enjoy.

Now I???m back in my own house in Dublin, uncorking some nice wine, ready for the vinegar it can turn to when families and friends overindulge, as I am about to. Right by the hole-in-the-wall cellar, I look up to see a vision in yellow: a painting Frank sent to me after I sang ???I???ve Got You Under My Skin??? with him on the 1993 ???Duets??? album. One from his own hand. A mad yellow canvas of violent concentric circles gyrating across a desert plain. Francis Albert Sinatra, painter, modernista.

Oh yes, what's up? I love just chilling in my wine cellar, contemplating life like most Americans, while looking at that picture Frank Sinatra sent to me. That really speaks to the troubling issues of our times. Thanks Bono.

No. 1 · I don't think Bert and Ernie are gay... just looking for the right women.

The NYT has been upper middle class for so long now. Not to mention almost all of its articles are 3 pages too long. And they never looked at the Palestinian side of the Israel/Palestine issue.
At least they didn't print another article about Michelle's clothing. She's not that great of a dresser. Chill. In your wine cellar?

Bono is the poseur par excellence, with his tinted sunglasses worn at every public appearance, nothing this silly silly man — but a great singer, yes — can be taken seriously now. He really cares about the poor in Africa? BS. He really cares about global warming? BS. He really cares about forgiving Third World Country debts? BS. He is one BS artist writ large, with his celebrity sunglasses and his VIP airs. What's wrong with celebrities today? Bono should stick to music, at which he excells. And get off the public stage. He makes a mockery of compassion, as his compassion is just ME ME ME. Go Bono, we hardly knew ye…..

Between Bono and Anderson Cooper, nothing can be taken seriously anymore. One is a rock poseur humanitarian not, and the other is a serious CNN reporter not. "Get that bitch off thte stage now!" Keeping Them Honest Trust-Fundie AC said the other day on the Daily Show. How low can a CNN reporter go? John Chancellor, Walter Cronkite, Tom Brokaw, would never stoop to such a low. Anderson Cooper, you are a fraud! Shame on you for sinking so low!

The Daily Show aired CNN's Puppedential Debate hosted

Anyway, Mah Boo and PUPPIES!!!! Doesn't this make your genitals quiver? Why didn't they sell tickets to this monumental event? I would have had a reason to sniff at Mah Boo's foxhole without getting dragged away by his security….AGAIN.

And I could die with a smile on my b-hole if the Silver Fox pointed at me and said, "Get this bitch off the stage!"
Actually, that's probably what he wanted to say while hosting New Year's Eve with Kathy Griffin. I love Mah Boo more than I love my bong.
