The Christ of Politics?
Polimom laughed right out loud at the Italian Prime Minister for this one:
"I am the Jesus Christ of politics," Italian media quoted him as saying at a dinner with supporters on Saturday night. "I am a patient victim, I put up with everyone, I sacrifice myself for everyone."
It makes Ray Nagin's gaffe look pretty tame, eh?
What a dope.
Now, I'm sure good Christians all over the world could take Berlosconi the wrong way (and totally overlook the obviously warped ego). I sure hope we won't be reading about how the Italian embassies are being attacked...
