Who elected Bono?

Bono, who has been exploiting people’s sense of decency to get his face on the world’s TV screens for a decade by promoting a bouquet of Apple-pie causes finally understands those of us who have been graced with his omnipresence.

«Bono said Sunday in an Italian newspaper commentary that he feels exploited by the Italian premier's campaign.»
Step back a moment and look more clearly at is Bono's vocation of virtue: they’re being advanced regardless of his actions, and with significant amounts of other people’s money. So why not exploit a man who’s become a one-man cause that has as little significance as the little rubber wristbands themselves? It's an image no deeper than his one-name pseudonym.
