Berlusconi goes bats#!^ insane

Seriously. I can't decide if he's going to flee the country in the dead of night with bulging briefcases or storm parliament with a bunch of guys he met at the beer hall. His coalition does include the Fascists led by Mussolini's daughter after all.

The nightmare scenario for Berlusconi is the center left coalition being able to overturn the many laws he specifically created to protect himself from various felony charges. One might suspect that the entire Prodi coalition could also get behind some pointed media monopoly laws as well - not that there's anything wrong with an unprincipled demagogue owning 90% of the televised media in the entire country...

Politically, Itlay is now the Miami of Europe.
