Jesse Helms, but not Nancy Pelosi

Mosquitonets Well, here's politics at its best . . .

Rocker and activist Bono plays the political game fairly well and stays away from any partisan statements as best as he can.  But one could guess he wanted more than a photo op when he met with incoming US House leader Nancy Pelosi and incoming Senate majority leader Harry Reid.

But it appears that the rock and roll icon got nothing more than that from the liberal Democrats.  "I'm alarmed we could not get a commitment from the Democratic leadership to prevent the loss of $1 billion in the continuing resolution," Bono said Thursday in a statement.

"I don't know who to blame. Democrats are blaming Republicans. Republicans are blaming Democrats. But the million people who were expecting (mosquito) bed nets don't know who to blame. They just know that a promise made by the United States to keep their families safe is in danger of being broken next year."

Good try, Laura. Keep pushing. (H/T atU2)
