What's kind of worrying is that I've seen quite a few people missing the joke and thinking that Bono actually seriously believes this stuff. One of MacPhisto's speeches in Paris (where he focused quite heavily on the Swedish election) got quite a bit of bad press.

So, I guess the old joke (which is often completely true) that Americans don't understand satire applies elsewhere in the world too...

on the Roger Waters The Wall tour, I saw people enthusiastically waving that crossed arms/hammer sign and proudly putting the hammers armband... = |

so, it's not surprising... I'm afraid... =(
