It's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses. Hit it!

They said it couldn't be done, but somehow the laws of physics were shattered when the egos of President Bush and Bono were able to be crammed into the same room. Not since Bill O'Reilly and Donald Trump bumped into each other at Scores has this much arrogance coexisted.

Bono, of course, was a guest at the National Prayer Breakfast, an annual event where Republicans gather to suck up to their base and Democrats attempt to look like they believe in God. Republican Senator Norm Coleman became the first Jewish Senator to cosponsor the Breakfast, while Democratic Senator Joseph Lieberman became the first Jewish Senator to order extra lox.

Bono made several jokes, including a reference to his own Messianic complex. He then strapped himself to a makeshift cross and kissed Karl Rove on the mouth. His funniest line of the morning came when he suggested that the United States devote an additional 1% of its budget to helping the world's poor, resulting in 8 minutes of uninterrupted laughter from the audience.

Bush called Bono a "doer" and an "amazing guy". Then they went and finally saw "Brokeback Mountain" together.*

*I apologize for the hackneyed, cliched, and gratuitous "Brokeback Mountain" joke.
