    Apart perhaps from the Viagra, there is nothing at all new about Berlusconi. “Meet the new boss…”

    The LIttle Dudes in the foreground say: “Why can’t we have amusing politics?”
    Your country tried once and half of you had a hissy fit.

    I guess it depends on your definition of amusing.

    I can’t see as I blame him.

    Oliphant finally wrote a cartoon with humor in it. Give us a break.

    With Mormon overtones!

    Dude, no.
    The main body of the church hasn’t sanctioned polygamy in about 100 years.
    It’s a couple of the offshoots who do it, and none of them are recognized by the main body.

    He’s a cross between a mafioso and a game show host…

    Berlusconi is famous for partying with eight young women, hence the eight women in the cartoon. He wins elections because he basically owns the media in Italy. It’s a great example of how the free market fails when there isn’t adequate government regulation of monopolies.

    I believe that he was referring to Bill Clinton’s escapades.

    Does this mean that Rupert Murdoch is our next president?

    President Obama (who is, by the way, a U.S. citizen, not a Kenyan—which should have been capitalized in your posting) won a second term because there are just enough intelligent, educated, and reasoning voters in the country who opposed the ignorant and reactionary fool who ran against him. Nor can you claim “4 years of failure”; the Patient Protection and Affordable care Act, while dreadfully watered down, is still a good step toward what a civilized nation should provide for its residents. It’s admittedly a shame on the entire nation that we still have soldiers invading other sovereign nations where we have no right to be and that the gulag in Guantanamo remains open, but those shortfalls still don’t quite equate to “failure.”

    Here’s something that I have been pondering for a while now; maybe someone can come up with a useful answer. Why is it that it does seem that many news outlets have a liberal bias? My answer is that people who actually live the news day in and day out pay attention to details, including who is the problem and who seems to be more likely to be the solution. Is it the immersion in reality that makes them see the world a certain way? And if so, does it help to reinforce the idea that people whose intellectual stimulation starts and ends with People magazine make their decisions based more on what people tell them than what they know?

    Or, do other media outlets work like Fox News, where the head honcho tells them what news is fit to report, and in what manner it is to be reported?

    This is not meant to create animosity. I am really curious.

    I just watched a retrospective of the great political satirist Mark Russell last night. He always found our politics to be extremely amusing. (Without him would Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert be where they are today?)

    I’m not a lady, but I know a few, so I will venture a guess. One, you’re not as rich as he is. Two, you’re not as powerful as he is. Three, you don’t know as many rich and powerful people as he does. Four, if you promise to make a woman a TV star, she is less likely to believe you if you don’t own a network or two.

    Of course, this would mean that women would be flocking around Rupert Murdoch, as well, so that shoots my theory….
