painful to hangout with Republicans, Bono says

"The great thing about hanging out with Republicans is that it is very unhip for both of us," Bono said. "There is a parity of pain there."

Hi, Iím kind of new to this forum. There are many interesting opinions in here.
I found this article today looking for Bono news. Does he really not like Republicans?

I don't think Bono was saying he is in pain when hanging out with Republicans, but that due to his traditional company and the traditional company of most Republicans, it is an unfamiliar pairing for both sides, and yes, a bit awkward.

U2bama,

Thank you for your explanation. It is helpful but, what do you mean by
ďtraditional company of most RepublicansĒ?

I think he means the company that Republicans traditionally keep.

Joyfulgirl,

Thank you for your response, clarification. You are not butting in.

Iím not very political. After viewing other threads in here, it seems many U2 fans are. So does Bono really think Republicans are unhip?

Does anybody think Republicans other than Sideshow Bob are "cool"?

"Bono who?" "Just Bono." "What do you mean, he must have a last name, right?" "No, he doesn't." "Oh. I see. "

::butting in also::

This is just my interpretation, I don't think the 'unhip' comment is necessarily a criticism of Republicans. Just a reference to the fact that you wouldn't normally expect a conservative Republican and a considerably less conservative rock star to be involved in a discussion on debt relief and other related issues together.

Correct; Republican politicians are generall more likely to "keep the company of" other politicos, bsiness people, etc. as opposed to rock stars. However, Bono is much more than a rock star.
