Silvio's Greatest Hits

Italy’s former premier Silvio Berlusconi, who blames his tax fraud conviction on persecution by magistrates, says his children “feel like the Jews under Hitler”.
“My children tell me they feel like the families of Jews in Germany must have felt under Hitler’s regime. The whole world is against us,” he is quoted as saying in an upcoming collection of interviews with journalist Bruno Vespa, an extract of which was released Wednesday.
The 77-year-old media magnate is renowned for his off-colour comments and diplomatic gaffes, in the past likening a German member of the European Parliament to a Nazi guard and describing US President Barack Obama as “suntanned”.
Perhaps it was only too predictable that Silvio would violate Godwins Law in his neo fascist over reaction to cast himself as a victim now that he is about to be booted from the Italian government because of his multiple corruption convictions. I'm sure the Ceasecu's were having the same typical hyperbolic demagogic kind of tantrum as they were being taken out in back of the barn.....
