The cathodic masturbator


Once upon a time, the real powerful people had enemies in Richelieu, Trotsky, and Bakunin and admitted their fear in places like Versailles or in Red Square.

In today’s world, the seven enemies of the dwarf carrier of fears are the Guzzanti brothers, Dandini, Gnocchi, Celentano, Vergassola and Bertolino, and they go to Bruno Vespa to admit their fears.

How sad to think of him at home swapping channels on the TV: “Guzzanti I’ll make you pay for this!” or “Watch out Bertolino, watch out!” with Veronica who soothes: “Calm down, I’ll make you a nice hot cup of tea.”
See what he’s obliged to do so that he can take part in the next showing of Rockpolitick.

But his problem isn’t enemies but friends. To give him a hand, I’ll list seven of them: Casini, Dell’Utri, La Loggia, Letta, Previti, Cuffaro, Bondi.

Then I feel really hurt because I’ve been excluded from the list.
What sort of image problem is he causing me, who has been behind him for years, that I’ve spent so much f… ing effort, that I talk so badly of him? That I call him Dorian Gray. I’m consulting my lawyer to weigh up whether or not to sue him for damages to my image.

PS: Corriere della Sera has dedicated the first three pages to the frenzy about comedians, a world record of contra-information.
So now it’s all clear.
This is simply an excuse for the government and the media not to talk about real problems.
Of recession, mafia, swindling electoral laws, the sentencing of Previti, Fazio, Fiorani etc. etc. etc.

Well it's not so strange that "comedians and comics" provide political comment if you think about the role of satire historically, especially n the visual arts. Hogarth (UK): Daumier(FR): Adriana Bisi Fabbri(IT)...the whole POINT of satire is that it is POLITICAL: it is the oafs ruling us who don't know that there is no comedy without commentary.

In italy now the information is done by the commedians and comics. Strange?

I was wondering... where do you get information on the Italian situation if the main press outlets talk about commedians?
