Once more I have to say “thank you” to all of you. TIME, the top weekly publication in the world has published its classification of the top 25 blogs: “Time.com's First Annual Blog Index”. Beppegrillo.it is among these. Crikey. That’s not possible. I told my wife and she sent me out to buy the bread telling me not to let it go to my head. My son Ciro asked me how much I paid to TIME for the publicity and if I had any money left over for him to buy comics.
Can I ask you for a bit of help?
It’s possible to vote for the 25 blogs online. It’s like a popular jury.
This blog has to climb up the classification. The Americans aren’t familiar with it yet. Bring down the server with your votes for Beppegrillo.it (all with a score of 10, however, don’t muck around!)

Presentation of the blog beppegrillo.it by TIME.com:
“Beppe Grillo, a popular Italian comedian, actor, and political satirist, writes one of the few non-English language blogs that's become wildly popular worldwide. That's because Grillo speaks the international language of outrage. On a typical day, Grillo's blog may call for Germany to declare war on Italy, or failing that, for Italy to boycott the upcoming Olympic Games in China, or for a prominent politician to stop acting like a "Psycho-dwarf." Most of the outrage has a political point — the Beppe blog features a regularly updated list of members of the Italian Parliament who have been convicted, and frequently calls for tainted politicians to resign from office. Last September, Grillo used his blog to rally marchers in nearly 300 Italian towns for his "Fuck Off Day," to encourage citizens to forcibly remove from office members of the Italian Parliament who have criminal convictions. The rally was such a hit that a second round is planned for April 25th. America could use a political satirist fueled by this sort of outrage, but for now, there's Beppe.” TIME
