Italian Elections

Silvio_Berlusconi(Rome) This weekend, the Italians will be voting on a new Prime Minister. Consequently, the current officeholder, Silvio Berlusconi, has been colorfully campaigning for re-election.

[Berlusconi] has vowed to give up sex for the election, compared himself to Jesus and Napoleon, and admitted phoning late-night erotic chat lines. Nothing, it seems, is out of bounds for Silvio Berlusconi.

But yesterday the Italian Prime Minister, trailing in opinion polls before Sunday's vote, perhaps went a step too far when he suggested that left-wing voters were "dickheads."
Note that left-wing dickheads are not unique to Italian politics. They are known to reside throughout Europe and all other continents with a particularly prominent distribution on the seaboards of the Americas.
