in which we ponder politics (sort of)

Here is a phrase that threw a small wrench in my mental gears this afternoon:

"...former European porn star and politician"

AND POLITICIAN. Absolutely fascinating.

We Americans can be so stuffy, demanding impeachments & resignations when our leaders merely get busy with interns and prostitutes. Can we imagine a Congress in which the likes of Ron Jeremy and Jenna Jameson call for action? So to speak, anyway.

I cannot stop pondering what kinds of work the Italian parliament accomplished during the FIVE YEARS Ilona Staller was a member. Was there a dress code? Did they have one of those big screens to project proceedings? So curious.

Interestingly, Ms. Staller and her ex-husband have already been featured in my blog. It was just as fun then as now.
