Very important people
Silvio Berlusconi will be making a state visit to George Bush mid-October to discuss world affairs. I don't know who's most likely to benefit from this, given that one is totally discredited at home and abroad, while the other has reduced his country to a sort of laughing stock and only keeps his head above the domestic waters by making sure that nobody ever, I repeat ever, interviews him in the way that is normal practice in the States. The only good thing that might come from the visit is that Berlusconi is bound to endorse McCain. As though Sarah Palin weren't horror enough.
