Republicans can learn from Italy: dolce vita, baby! ... by gimletye
As sex scandals involving Republican elected officials pile up, I am feeling battle fatigue. I know, the other side does it too. But isn't it clear by now: if you can't beat them, join them? You just can't take sex out of politics or anything else. Take the example of Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlesconi, host of the G8 Summit, who appointed a former topless model to be his Minister of Equal Opportunities. I'm telling you, Mara Carfagna could get climate change passed in a heart beat. You don't need Ann Coulter, boys. Take it easy, like the Italians. Dolce vita, baby.
