Dear American friends, I humbly apologize for the shameful statement made by Berlusconi.
You know, he’ s not just prime minister: he’s the punishment for our sins.
I don’t know, maybe we are paying for the Christians persecutions by Romans, or for the medieval wars. Maybe he is the Italian people’s purgatory.
For us, he’ s like hemorrhoids: we can do nothing but grit our teeth, and hope that the pain, soon or later, will pass.
