Berlusconi my hero

"The escort, Patrizia D'Addario, claims the tapes relate to the night of 4 November last year, when the leaders of the world were holding their breath, waiting to see if Americans would elect their first black president.

Berlusconi, apparently, had other things on his mind.

According to D'Addario, Berlusconi was entertaining her in the bedroom of his magnificent Rome residence, Palazzo Grazioli. In one fragment of conversation, Berlusconi appears to direct D'Addario to wait for him in bed while he showers. In another conversation, recorded the next day, she protests to Giampaolo Tarantini, the businessman who allegedly set her up with the Italian prime minister, that she had not received the €5,000 (£4,300) she was expecting.

In a third snippet, it is claimed she confides to the same intermediary that Berlusconi asked her whether next time they met she would agree to a menage-a-trois with another of his girlfriends."

the good part:
"...now I'm gonna take a shower so, so you wait for me in the double bed if you finish first?"
"Which bed...Putin's?"
"Putin's."
"Ah how lovely, the one with curtains."

I think American politicians would be much better off if they could be as brazen as Berlusconi. Mark Sanford, for example, would have done much better if, instead of apologizing in a press conference, he had demanded an apology from his wife via tabloid.

Mark Sanford should have just said, "Sorry, I screwed up. But Maria is so fine and if you knew her, you would have cheated on your wife tool", in French.
