You’re not seeing things… Alabama’s senior U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby really did find himself in the company of rock star legend Bono, of the famed band U2 this week.

On Wednesday Shelby tweeted a photo of himself and the U2 frontman in his office.
According to the Associated Press, Bono was visiting Capitol Hill Tuesday — after playing two sold-out shows over the weekend in the nation’s capital — “to thank Republican and Democratic lawmakers in Congress for funding international development programs. He’s the co-founder of The One Campaign, which advocates for ending extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa.”
Shelby didn’t disclose what the two discussed during the sit down, tweeting only, “Enjoyed discussing various issues and hearing about all the good work he is doing around the world.”
Yes, you can file this one under “things that could only happen in the bizarre world of politics.”
