Boom boom Napolitano

I was aghast, my mouth wide open like a sea lion. My jaws are still aching. There where not even people like Gasparri and like Bersani dared to go, Napolitano entered with a (low) blow. The President of the Republic, the one holding the highest office in the State, in response to a question about the MoVimento 5 Stelle {5 Star MoVement} replied "Grillo, I’m not seeing any boom!". A “young” style of speaking, enriched by historical memorabilia, he said: “I remember the boom of the 1960s, but I am not seeing other booms.” It’s true! The M5S is only third and it came to life only two and a half years ago and it hasn’t gone “boom”. Perhaps it’s gone “bim bum bam”? Or Sim sala bin? Napolitano is worried about the future and he went further “There are reasons for everyone to reflect on, for the political forces and for the citizens about the relationship with politics and on the problems of governability.” Translation: “The parties (the ones that went boom) - no one cares about them anymore.” Napolitano then downplayed the vote “We have had a test that is rather limited, also because the number of voters called upon to vote was not a very great number (nine and a half million Italians, - editor).”
Next year, there’ll be the national elections and straight after that Napolitano’s successor will be appointed, so he will be able to enjoy his well-deserved repose. If the MoVimento 5 Stelle goes boom (as in the fabulous 1960s), the next president will not be an emanation coming from the parties, like Ms Bonino, and not even from the banks, like Rigor Montis. For the Quirinale Palace the games have been ongoing for some time. They have already sold off the skin of the Italians. “The President of the Republic is the head of the State and represents national unity.” (article 87 of the Constitution) He represents even the MoVimento 5 Stelle and even, after these elections, its roughly 250 local and regional councillors chosen by the citizens. The boom of the M5S is not seen, but it can be felt. Boom boom Napolitano!

Beppe, are you sure of what you're doing? Do your candidates have any experience in politics? And if they have, have YOU any interest in making citizen's lives any better? Or are you just trying to reserve you a little space in the political life of our nation, space that absolutely doesn't compete to you? I ask you sincerely: give it up and return doing the comic. I think you cannot understand (like many others of course) the sacred role that politics had in the past, should have these days, and would have in the future
Faithfully,

a guy that has always voted for freedom.
