Italian premier rips leftist judges to — can you imagine? — a baffled Obama

I admit my sense of Italian history sort of expired when the Visigoths sacked Rome. So I’m not sure how long Silvio Berlusconi has been the Italian premier, but I’m pretty sure it predates electricity.
The 74-year-old Berlusconi remains considerably more popular than a carbuncle festival in Tuscany despite currently being a defendant in four cases, three related to his business interests and one on charges of paying for sex with an underage teen.
Then again, Italians are noted for their love of La Dolce Vita.
However, I suspect Berlusconi’s brain must be in an advanced state of decay.
Berlusconi, who makes Bernie Madoff seem ethical, complained about leftist judges today to President Obama of all people.
Say what? The guy is complaining to the King of Lefties? What are they putting in this guy’s vino?
Berlusconi cornered a clearly perplexed Obama today at the G-8 summit after the delegates all had enjoyed a V-8.
The premier told Obama that leftist judges in Italy represent “almost a dictatorship.”
His comments were carried on Italian TV news broadcasts from the summit in Deauville, France. As you can imagine, Italian magistrates and his political opponents now really want to make linguini out of Berlusconi.
What is it about lefties that incenses people until they lose their senses (i.e. Tea Partiers)?
Doesn’t Berlusconi realize that Julius Caesar, Tiberius, Charlemagne, Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci, Ramses II, Alexander the Great and Napoleon all were lefthanders?
Ditto Herbert Hoover, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Ben Franklin, John McCain, Oliver North and Joan of Arc.
Not to mention Babe Ruth, Ted Williams and Sandy Koufax.
