Italians Stupidity: Berlusconi vs. Sanity

Silvio Berlusconi, three time Prime Minister of Italy, is running for the office again on February 24-25. His center-right party People of Freedom Party is a very close second in recent polls.

Berlusconi has been implicated in a range of political Scandals including but not limited to:

  • Connections to money lauderers
  • Conviction for Tax Evasion
  • Sleeping with an underage prostitute
  • Bribing witnesses
  • False testimony

Furthermore, Berlusconi uses his media empire to bad mouth the competition and has multiple times used his position. He has also used his parliamentary majority to change laws in order to prevent himself from going to prison.

He has done his best to bring back Italian Fascism.

Are Italians stupid? I guess so.
