Clown Time In Italy

I am an inhabitant of the United States of America in the year 2013 so I hestiate making any saracastic remarks concerning political leaders in other nations. I live in a nation in which the Republican party insists that if one reduces taxes it results in more jobs for all and enables the government to balance its budget. So, why is it suprising that Italians believe a skirt chasing incompetent like Silvio Berlusconi who led Italy into an economic disaster is now the man who will bring prosperity to the land? Latest polls show that his coalition would receive 30% of the vote if an election were held right now. Of course, his numbers just barely exceed those of the Five Star Movement which is headed by an ex-clown.

Perhaps, we can make a deal. We Americans will take one clown in exchange for a hundred clowns in the House of Representatives who belong to the clowns known as the Tea Party. Heck, we will even throw in a  guy who chops wood in Texas.
