Okay, maybe they have possibly framed an American or two recently (maybe), but in this day and age of Republican hyperventilation and foot-stomping dominating our politics posed as “scandals” (terrorist-fist bumps for all!) it is in a way refreshing to see how Italy’s leader just puts it all out there:

 

In a sign of his frustration at the investigations into his alleged crimes and misdemeanours, Silvio Berlusconi vowed in July to leave Italy, which he described as a “shitty country” that “sickened” him.

Which is quite an endorsement for a country when it comes from its Prime Minister.

Although to be fair, half of Wisconsin’s Supreme Court justices are saying the same thing about Madison.
