Apparently, Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-VT, has a bit of a swagger to his stride today, his staff report, because Bono of rock fame described Leahy as "the John Wayne of Washington" during a U2 concert Tuesday night in DC.
Leahy and Bono, born Paul D. Hewson in Dublin, Ireland, have worked together over the years on a host of issues -- health care, humanitarian, human rights.
Leahy missed the concert Tuesday. Soon after lead singer Bono made his pronouncement about his senator friend, however, Leahy got some emails from folks who heard Bono's praise.
"He appreciates the compliment but down the road this could become a dilemma," said David Carle, Leahy's spokesman."May the day never come that he has to choose between John Wayne and Batman."
Remember Leahy had a role in a Batman film.
