So.... where the heck is Bono in Ireland's hour of need?

Ireland's economy has gone down the tubes and they have requested bailouts.  Instead of the approximately 1% of Bono's charity proceeds going to supposed third world countries (instead of into the pockets of the charity's employees), he should change gears and take care of his homeland.  If he doesn't, he's the ultimate hypocrite.

I asked the (Welsh) wife that.
After she stopped laughing, she said that Ireland probably couldn't afford his overhead.

Too true!! I remember reading something a while back where all of Bono's cash is in other countries too so his homeland couldn't tax him....
