RNC Blog: Wizbang: Bono At The RNC

Wizbang: Bono At The RNC: "Bono paid a visit to the Republican National Convention (posing here with an attendee):"

NEW YORK (Reuters) - U2 lead singer Bono is taking time off from preparing for the release of his band's new album to remind Republicans about AIDS in Africa.
Just as he did in July at the Democratic National Convention in Boston, the Irish activist showed up at the Republicans' confab at Madison Square Garden to use his celebrity cachet to spread the word.

"I'm a non-partisan guy," Bono said during an interview at the venue on Wednesday with Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly.

The rock star's organization Debt AIDS Trade Africa, or DATA, seeks to cut Africa's debt load and enlist the help of the United States in enabling the medicine its drug companies produce to be sent to Africa. Bono and former U.S. Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill undertook a high-profile 10-day trip through Africa in 2002 to help raise awareness of such issues.
