    This part was funny:

    "Grillo, a mop-haired, pot-bellied blogger, has ridden a wave of disillusionment to become Italy's most popular political critic. In a rant that lambasted politicians of all leanings, he said Berlusconi's dominance of the media would be unthinkable in other countries."

    The Republicrats have total media domination now to the point where a third-party entry may never get into a "debate" (aka commercial) again. Even activist candidates that try to enter via the Republicrat Party are quickly sorted out, marginalized, then eliminated.

    Well, in fairness, as much as I think corporate media conglomeration in America is incredibly dangerous and corrosive, the situation there is worse. I mean, he literally owns all of the media. That would be like Rupert Murdoch being President and also owning CBS, NBC, CNN etc.

    But it isn't unthinkable, here. I could see it happening very easily and the sheep wouldn't even Baaaaaa a little.
