prodi lost a lot of respect for the get-out-of-jail-free card he just gave to a bunch of whitecollar criminals.
as did scanion for supporting it.

here's a country with a green party environment minister and sweet fanny adams to show for it.

where they found 10% bush supporters, maybe lega nord-land?


i don't think prodi was voted in to be popular, more to get italy back from the control of a megalomaniac buffoon, who if he were put behind bars, might raise prodi's ratings quite a bit!
