A bit of amusement. I was reminded of Europeans treating the Monica Lewinsky thing with a measure of humor about how conservative we were in our values when it was well known that some leaders in Europe had affairs.

Now we can laugh back: Hey Italy, at least our president slept with an intern, not a call girl!

(No, I don't really care beyond that. I don't think that scandal is worse than Clinton's affair and so it deserves about as much moral outrage: namely none at all.)

It does seem odd that Italians are up in arms about it though -- they had a porn star elected to Parliament!

Not being European nor particularly interested in the affairs of Europeans leaders, I wasn't sure how universal it was. When I'm not absolutely certain, I speak on the terms that I am certain of.

You're interested enough to get this one wrong. ;)
