Beware the Green Eyed Monster

Sinead O'Connor, who has long since abandoned her singing career in exchange for a life of rage and vindictiveness is once again in the news. She is upset with Bono of U2's public showing of sadness for the death of John Paul II.

O'Connor is amazed by Bono's apparent hypocrisy, and admits she is getting "a little sick of Bono's self-importance".

She says: "I wasn't going to say anything until I saw him kissing he rosary beads that the Pope gave him.

"He put those rosary beads on that microphone (stand) the day the Pope died and went on about how great Catholicism is. I think he should apologise for that." [source]

Ah, Sinead, nothing compares to you.

She is obviously a very troubled person if watching someone kissing Rosary beeds and praising his faith is for her a sign of "hypocrisy" and "self-importance". Perhaps she is upset that she isn't getting as much media attention as he is. Perhaps she should try a different tack - Working to end world debt, good - Criticizing popular Pope, bad. She should also remember that when she points a finger at someone she has four fingers pointing back at her and the next time she wants to know what "hypocrisy" and "self-importance" look like, I have found that one need not go much farther than a mirror.
