This might be overstating the case just a bit, but there's certainly something to it: "If ever there was a sign of the moral bankruptcy of Silvio Berlusconi's government, it is the sight of a McDonald's apron wrapped around the svelte frame of the Minister of Agriculture, Luca Zaia as he helped launch the new McItaly range of burgers. The President of the Council cavorting with young women, the allegations of shady connections, slippery financial arrangements, dubious political allegiances, and all-round dodgy dealings are as nothing when compared to this monstrous act of national betrayal." In other Silvio Berlusconi news: "A spokesman for the Prime Minister refused to comment on the mystery surrounding his hairline." Ah, Italia!
