I take this as proof that the Europeans do sex scandals much better than Americans.

Hard to say. We're talking about a country that has had more than 60 governments since World War II, and Berlusconi himself has been tried multiple times only to be acquitted either during the original trial or on appeal. And this is his third stint as prime minister.

So, will this be the scandal that breaks the Italian public's back? I don't think so given history, but you never know.

yup! As long as most of the italians say, 'better Berlusconi than someone who does not care about us', those scandals don't affect the public that much. Of course there are lots of people who think that this is really embarrassing, but most italians (especially those who live in the cities) think that he could do whatever he wants in his private life.

I just saw the film Il Divo about Guilio Andreotti's Mafia trial and multiple acquittals. He was made Senator for Life for his crimes so I'm guessing nothing much is going to happen with this.

I was a little lost at times because there were so many characters introduced so fast and I couldn't keep up with them, and I didn't know the era in Italian political history at all. Yet, I was riveted to the screen at the same time and finally decided that I didn't have to get who every single person was to get the overall story. Stylistically, I loved it. But being able to rewind would have been nice.

I think you might have a point if this is true:

Let�s Burst the Bubble by Mark Steyn on National Review Online

Quote:

I was asked the other day about the difference between American and British sex scandals. In its heyday, Brit sex was about the action — Lord Lambton’s three-in-a-bed bi-racial sex romp; Harvey Proctor’s industrial-scale spanking of rent boys; Max Mosley’s Nazi bondage sessions, with a fine eye for historical accuracy and the orders barked out in surprisingly accurate German; Stephen Milligan’s accidental auto-erotic asphyxiation while lying on a kitchen table wearing fishnet stockings . . . With the exception of the last ill-fated foray, there was an insouciance to these remarkably specialized peccadilloes.

Republican sex scandals have been trending gay lately.

unless you were a Senator from Louisiana and you wanted prostitutes to dress you up in diapers, like this guy:

So why are there so many closet gays in the Republican party?
