Silvio Berlusconi

And he also slept with eight women in one night! In the continuing implosion of Italian Prime Minister-cum-scandal-machine Silvio Berlusconi, new wiretaps have been released revealing even more icky details about the seventy-four-year-old's sex life.

Berlusconi was wiretapped as part of an investigation into an alleged Italian prostitution ring (the Prime Minister himself is not actually being investigated), and was recorded in 2009 telling an associate, "Last night I had a queue outside the door of the bedroom... There were eleven... I only did eight because I could not do it anymore. Listen, all the beds are full here... this lot won't go home, even at gunpoint."

In case anyone made the mistake of forgetting that he actually did have some work to do as Prime Minister this whole time, he's also recorded cutting down his usual order of women, complaining about a "terrible week" that included meetings with Gordon Brown, Angela Merkel, Nicolas Sarkozy, and even Pope Benedict.

In spite of it all, sources close to the Prime Minister say he has no plans to step down. It would almost be funny if it weren't so unbelievably skeezy and depressing.

Nobody remembers Zaphod Beeblebrox?
From wiki:
He has a role that involves no power whatsoever, and merely requires the incumbent to attract attention so no one wonders who's really in charge. As a character, Zaphod is hedonistic and irresponsible, narcissitically self-centred almost to the point of solipsism, and often extremely insensitive to the feelings of those around him.

I love this guy. Compared to least he has his priorities right.

Read "The Dark Heart of Italy." It's a pretty good tear-down on a society that allows a clown like him into power.

I thought it was the prerogative of societies to allow buffoons to reach power. I mean they all do it.
