If he is like Jesus, I am like the Virgin Mary

I am puzzled. Downright flummoxed. I am beginning to wonder if perhaps certain public figures are getting a strong dose of some hallucinogenic in their drinking water. We have Pat Robertson going nutso, Mr. Iranian President half-cocked, and now Berlusconi, who first decided to give up sex, has now decided he is like Jesus Christ. I imagine he and Kanye West have the same press agent.

The Napoleon comparison was bad enough, but now he is taking on the high holiest of holies.

But then he went on to complain that he feels like what he called "the Jesus Christ of Italian politics".

"I'm a patient victim. I put up with everything. I sacrifice myself for everyone," he said.

Awww, poor wittle witalian politician. Has he sacwificed himself too much?

Yes, I see that common language in Italian allows you to say "poor Christ" about someone without blaspheming, but I really don't think that is the case here, especially after the Napoleon comment and that fact that the world knows that Berlusconi is batshit crazy.

I guess the world will be ok, as long as he doesn't start comparing himself to Hitler or Mussolini.
At least the Italians have the power to get him out of office.
