Ooops, he’s done it again. Silvione Berlusconi just cannot avoid a comment related to the sexes every once in a while. This time he’s got the left and the right battling each other. I’m not talking about which half of the woman is best to observe but rather whether women of the right are more beautiful than those of the left. Speakling on Radio anch’io Silvione stated:
Le donne di destra sono certamente più belle.
Referring to the “voto inutile” issue, Berlusconi tried to capitalise on the “beauty” subject by trying to dissuade people for voting for La Destra’s beauty (“sberla” according to Berluska – Santanchè):
C’è chi votera per la Santanché perché è una bella sberla, senza rendersi conto di portare voti a uno che proprio una bella sberla non é: Walter Veltroni.
Thank God the beauty subject was not broached in Malta over the last elections. I think the Left might have had a slight advantage. Of course they too have their little Shops of Horrors. As for the leadership contest, selling beauty to women might have be difficult – Gonzi was uberphotoshopped in all the huge posters around the country, Sant does not give me the impression of wooing the greater part of the fairer sex and Harry’s rubbery image might not exactly be what women want.
If you ask me, if looks could get you votes then we’d have Myriam Dalli as PM before you could say “flimkien kollox possibli”.
