Dare I push Silvio Berlusconi Day into its third day? I’ll have to give this a lot of thought/prayer.
I want more of his face on my web site (it can only be good for traffic and legitimacy, right?). And yet, I’m afraid that if I spend TOO much time thinking about Berlusconi, I will collapse in a fireball like Icarus, the boy who flew into the center of the sun with the wings his father made him. He melted.
Geraldine Ferraro:“If Berlusconi was a white man, he wouldn’t be in this position. He’s very lucky to be bright orange. That reminds me, I need to take my Metamucil and stoke some racial resentments.” (JOKE!)
Walter Veltroni is styling himself as the Italian Voltron Barack Obama in his quest to defeat my hero, Silvio Berlusconi.
Veltroni rides into the towns he visits aboard a green Fiat SpA bus covered with campaign slogans. He’s usually greeted in the main town square by hundreds of supporters chanting “Walter, Walter!” or his campaign slogan “Si Puo Fare!!” &mdash the Italian translation of “Yes We Can!!” It was chosen explicitly to mimic the slogan of Barack Obama, the Illinois senator who is running for the U.S. Democratic presidential nomination.
I can’t remember how I heard about this guy. . . maybe a Bill Moyers show? As far as I know, he has no equivalent in the US. (Michael Moore probably comes closest.)
Grillo organized a nationwide “V Day,” which means “Middle Finger Day,” if I’ve translated the Italian finger-language correctly. He was a thorn in Berlusconi’s side, which means he’s probably going to heaven.
He has earned his place in our Silvio Berlusconi day!
By the way, since I don’t speak Italian, I have no idea what homeboy is talking about in this clip. If he’s saying KILL ALL AMERICANS, I reject and denounce him!!!
