A Real Deep Thinker in the Last Post

Has he ever listened to U2? Here's an article about Bono and debt relief. Yeah, they're a Christian band, but somehow, I don't see spiritualist Irish Catholics falling in line with the oppressive morality of the radical Cristist Right. Nor do I see them (or the pope for that matter) falling for the capilitist competition morality of the fiscal right. Although I think the issue of national debt in the developing world is much more nuanced than Bono appears to present, the guy is a progressive, and that's all there is too it.

Oprah likes him for Chrissakes.

If one were to suggest that willful ignorance and the ability to carry on with significant cognative dissonance is a defining feature of the modern Republican Party, then yeah, this guy is what we're up against.
