Berlusconi And The Burlesque Obama

The National Post put this Reuters report up on their site. And it’s something. Not a surprising thing, but definitely something. The opening:

One of the young women who attended Silvio Berlusconi’s “bunga bunga” parties told a court on Friday that she dressed up as a burlesque version of U.S. President Barack Obama to entertain the former Italian prime minister.

In testimony during a trial against the 75-year-old Berlusconi on charges of paying for sex with an underage prostitute, Marysthell Polanco said she had also dressed as prosecutor Ilda Boccassini.

At least Berlusconi’s consistent — everything in his world is viewed through the lens of sex. For an example, see the time when he called German Chancellor Angela Merkel an “unfuckable lard-arse”. A real charmer, that guy.

I’m trying to decide what kind of bio-pic he deserves. I’ve narrowed it down to two options: one, the wildly inappropriate sex farce that his life kinda already is, or two, an intense, Freudian drama that would have art-house directors lining up around the block to take a crack at it.

At least we know what the soundtrack would be.

One thought on “Berlusconi And The Burlesque Obama”

  1. Could the two options be combined? Maybe Berlusconi would enter his own mind Malkovich-style and have a sex party with clones of himself.
