How Has Silvio Berlusconi Not Been Punched in the Face Until Now?


BERLUSCONI Whoever could have punched Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi in the face today, and why? Answer: almost anyone, for thousands of reasons. And how was the rest of today's rally, Mr. Berlusconi? "The hecklers called Berlusconi a 'clown' while he cried 'shame on you' back at them and the sound system was turned up to drown them out." Good stuff.

It'll be interesting to see if there's any fallout from this. The look of complete helplessness on the face of a man whose whole political power is based on being perceived as unstoppable will have an effect.

Ronbo (#2,383)

I don't see it as helplessness at all. If the news reports are right, he asked for the car to be stopped so he could show the public his wounds, I hope the little chicken shit terrorist coward who did this gets sent to GITMO.

Oh, did Italy take over Gitmo? Good to know!

You're so CUTE!

Now we know the answer to the question "what could possibly get The Awl to publish on the weekends?"

Seriously, y'all need a weekend editor or something.

Abe Sauer (#148)

I've told Choire that I'd liveblog NFL games for him and he just gives me this raised eyebrow…. what's that mean?!?!?!

Ronbo (#2,383)

How the fuck do we know the subhuman thoughts that pass in that psychopathic Leftard brain of yours, Comrade Abbie?

HiredGoons (#603)

Rontard, stoptard with the tardtard; it's notard politardcally correctard. You needtard to respectard othertard people (tards), especially tardtards – nametard tardcallingtard doesn'tard servetard anytard purpose.

Silly tard.

The only people I know who can liveblog sports in a remotely convincing way are at the Guardian, liveblogging football, also known as soccer or, as Ronbo calls it, "leftardball".

sigerson (#179)

we could IM chat during NFL games. I'm sure that would be something people would be interested in. Favorite game from yesterday? The Eagles win over the Giants. It had everything. Fumbles, interceptions, long bombs to the end zone, runbacks, referee errors (and reversals) and Michael Vick completing his rehabilitation.

Abe Sauer (#148)

You forgot the "Constipated Tom Caughlin" thing that the camera catches at least 4 times per game. And that wasn't a "game." That looked like a streetball game where every play is "go deep" and nobody plays defense.

there is not a day i don't go to bed with the dream of seeing George W in that same position. not an assassin's bullet, not a noose in the Hague (although i would be amenable to discussion) …. just driving fucking punch to his fucking face … and watch him pick up his bloody teeth and slink away. never too late … anyone ?

Ronbo (#2,383)

Personally, I'd like to see some woman kick the shit out of Obama. I mean, a little girly man wimp like Obama would be too disgusting for a man to mess with, but an alpha woman like Sarah Palin would be Even Steven for the subhuman..

I would just love to see his bloody face on Fox news complete with broken teeth crying for his whore mother…The slut of Hawaii.

Abe Sauer (#148)

Personally, I'm just glad you keep visiting the site. With every click and every comment you enrich the "leftard" owners of this site so please KEEP VISITING!

HiredGoons (#603)

Personally, I'm just glad SOMEbody has taken up the selfless task of elevating the national dialogue.

Lord knows I wasn't about to do it.

KarenUhOh (#19)

I would like to have a wet hanky fight with you, in high heels.

There aren't many real men who would do that. But you would, now, wouldn't you?

Ronbo (#2,383)

Comrade Abbie: And here I didn't think Leftard scum where into "profit." Perhaps I'm wrong about the owners of this shit blog – You're a bunch of FASCIST PIGS! Oink! Oink!

Ronbo,

From what I've been able to absorb about you, your biography seems to have been lifted wholesale from Rambo's final speech to Richard Crenna in First Blood (the first Rambo movie, for you folks playing along at home). Considering your name, maybe that's the joke.

The things you talk about in the aforementioned bio, people "spitting" on Vietnam vets, etc. Never Happened. It's one of those movie-made myths that became part of the popular Zeitgeist. But that doesn't change the fact that it NEVER HAPPENED.

For this reason, I call bullshit on you and I call bullshit on your supposed personal history.

I suspect you're a poseur, either a kid pretending to be some grizzled old vet, or some grizzled old failure pretending to be a vet. Either way, you are full of crap, you're a fake and a troll.

SemperBufo (#1,849)

Nah, he just wants a hug!

Mindpowered (#948)

No, he wants some high MDMA ecstasy and then a hug.

HiredGoons (#603)

I would nominate Berlusconi as Italy's Nixon – more important question: who gets the Halloween mask licenses?

Private Hangnail (#2,576)

Is there anything worse than a blood-smeared fake tan? Oh, right, a blood-smeared fake tan when you can taste the caps that have been punched down your throat.

mathnet (#27)

There is a surprise though! Choire has unlovingly BUSTED IN ON BALK'S BERLUSCONI BEAT. I mean, the man has written about a milione miliardo words on the subject. Dude finally gets punched in the face, and you post a video about it on the weekend?

Talk about a mascalzona cretina!

slinkimalinki (#182)

this is like the time that [something happened] while balk was on jury duty. [seriously, what was that thing that happened?]

Alex Balk (#4)

Murdoch bought the WSJ. Still shaking with rage.

garge (#736)

I was thinking that maybe they were in bed together and Balk grabbed the wrong iPhone to post this. I am in a soap opera kind of hangover haze.

jolie (#16)

It pleases me beyond belief that we all imagine that these two share a bed. I have, literally, an entire mental storyline written around their life together. I can even picture the afghan folded at the foot of their bed (Balk's gramma made it for him when he was a boy. He's very sentimental.)

(Also I am really quite nuts.)

I hope they need a third roomie. All I know is that I saw this story on the news at 3 a.m. and then hopped excitedly around my apartment, waiting for this place to open. (Surprise weekend post–go figura!)

"From what I’ve been able to absorb about you, your biography seems to have been lifted wholesale from Rambo’s final speech to Richard Crenna in First Blood (the first Rambo movie, for you folks playing along at home). Considering your name, maybe that’s the joke."

Actually I was named "Ronbo" by Senior Special Agent John F. McKenna. If you want to know why, I would suggest you contact him. He'll be glad to come over and chat with you.

"The things you talk about in the aforementioned bio, people “spitting” on Vietnam vets, etc. Never Happened. It’s one of those movie-made myths that became part of the popular Zeitgeist. But that doesn’t change the fact that it NEVER HAPPENED."

Wrong. The thing that never happened was Global Warming. In the Vietnam Era it is well documented that G.I.s were spit on and physically attacked by Leftard scum like yourself. I personally witnessed this on many occasions, especially in the May, 1970 demonstrations in Washington, D.C. where my unit was sent on riot duty. The Leftard rioters threw plastic bags full of piss and shit at us. In return we threw tear gas and vomit agent back at them. We won.

"For this reason, I call bullshit on you and I call bullshit on your supposed personal history."

I call you a typical Leftard liar and traitor who I would run out of the country if I could…

"I suspect you’re a poseur, either a kid pretending to be some grizzled old vet, or some grizzled old failure pretending to be a vet. Either way, you are full of crap, you’re a fake and a troll."

Projection…PROJECTION! It was you AWL FAKES who attacked my website, so don't bitch about getting return fire.

sigerson (#179)

Your act is endearing. keep it up.

Wait, who won?

KarenUhOh (#19)

Do you piss bullets? Because I have a cockroach living in my toilet.

Whatever happened to "democommies"?

SemperBufo (#1,849)

Come on! He's adorable! I just want to SQUEEZE him!

FAKE!

myfanwy (#1,124)

The laddie doth protest too much, methinks.

HiredGoons (#603)

This is retarded; and gay.
