Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi Calls German Chancellor Angela Merkel “Unf***able”

Wow, the tale of Italian prime minster Silvio Berlusconi keeps getting more and more sordid. This week, Italian prosecutors have charged eight people with sending prostitutes to Berlusconi’s infamous Bunga Bunga parties. The leader of the prostitution ring is one Giampaolo Tarantini, who is also being investigated for blackmailing Berlusconi in exchange for keeping his mouth closed about what went down. Currently, investigators are pouring over transcripts of conversations captured via wiretap, and are finding all sorts of scandalous details. Like that a famous Italian actress was allegedly offered a high profile national television gig if she’d sleep with Berlusconi. And in another phone conversation, between Berlusconi and a newspaper editor, Berlusconi is rumored to say that German chancellor Angela Merkel is “an unf**kable fat a**.” Yes, really.

And therein lies a big problem.

Berlusconi is an extreme case, but to me it’s clear that his personal life led to a situation where he can only see women as sexual objects. And that does effect job performance. To most people, the leader of another major European nation’s sexuality would not matter—they wouldn’t even bring it up. But then again, Berlusconi is a guy widely noted for having packed his own political office with supremely hot women. I mean, talking about another politician’s “f**kability?” It’s just unbelievable to me.
