    It actually came from some type of artist(s) that would splice together commentary from celebs, news, etc, to make them say something they wouldn't normally say and/or political commentary. I forget what their name was. U2 found it (actually probably Willie) and they thought it fit that it was an election year in the U.S that fall when they were touring with the Outside Broadcast. That was the reason Bush was chosen. Somebody else already did it. I don't think they were huge fans of Bush but I don't think it was quite as insidious as you make it out.

    I was at opening night in Lakeland and remember with house lights on Bono walk out and sing it. It was so loud from the screaming I couldn’t make out what it was. For a long time until I heard the bootleg I thought he was singing MLK. The place was that loud.
    Interesting... I'd never heard that (obviously, from asking a question about it, I guess ).

    Also... that sounds like an incredible thing to have experienced.

    Yeah, I get the impression that it's sort of Bongolese, but there's definitely some strong similarity/repeated structure across shows.

    Kinda wish they still did extra stuff like that...
