Yes, he once again opened la bocca and inserted il piede. Between this guy (yeah, he also let the leaders of the NATO countries stand outside waiting while he chatted on his cell....his soccer team had some important business he needed to attend to) and a pope who thinks that condoms cause AIDS and we need to embrace Nazi priests, I am beginning to think that normal IQ tests should be required for the top jobs in this country.

The Italian prime minister, Silvio Berlusconi, today sparked controversy when he said the 17,000 people made homeless by Monday's earthquake should think of themselves as being on a "camping weekend". .
Berlusconi made the remark during an interview with a German television channel as he visited one of the emergency camps set up to cater for people who have lost their homes in the disaster.
The quake, which devastated the city of L'Aquila and surrounding towns and villages, has now claimed 260 lives.
Berlusconi told the reporter for the N-TV channel that the homeless quake victims "lacked nothing".
