Bono Chastises Wall Street At Clinton Philanthropy Summit

Even though I’ve been doing my best to ignore the current financial crisis that has prompted President George Bush
to suggest a funding a bailout plan consisting of $700 billion worth of
U.S. taxpayer dollars, a celebrity speaking out on the matter has burst
my little cozy bubble. Because if a celebrity ain’t saying it, I ain’t
hearing it!

Brangelina godfather Bono spoke at the fourth annual Bill Clinton global initiative and expressed his frustration with political priorities of the U.S. government, “It is extraordinary to me that you can find $700 billion to save Wall Street and the entire G8 can’t find $25 billion to save 25,000 children who die every day of preventable treatable disease and hunger,” the U2 singer said.

It looks like this was an event that had celebrities mixing and mingling with politicos, with Al Gore, Gossip Girl fan Drew Barrymore, John McCain, Sarah Palin and Wyclef Jean in attendance.
