NEWS: Silvio Berlusconi Resigns, Republicans Debate, Cats Sell, And The Bombast Of Kylie Minogue

Road Farewell, Berlusconi! What a long, ridiculous trip it's been!

An impromptu orchestra and choir gathered outside the presidential palace, where Mr. Berlusconi resigned, playing the “Hallelujah” chorus from Handel’s “Messiah.”

Hundreds of spectators gathered outside, shouting “buffoon” and “go home” to a polarizing leader once loved by many, making Mr. Berlusconi the very embodiment of the Italian saying that the tenor is applauded until he is booed off stage. Some in the crowd were popping bottles of champagne. And cars and mopeds in downtown Rome waved Italian flags and honked their horns in celebration, as they do when the national soccer team wins.

... Fulvia Roscini, 47, a nurse, had brought her 8-year-old son and 13-year-old daughter outside the prime minister’s office on Saturday evening. “We came here because I wanted my kids to see this,” she said, “to see that another country is possible and is already here.”

Road The powerful bromance of Silvio Berlusconi and Vladimir Putin.

'Sup, Silvio,
I’m sure you are feeling worse than a dying elk today. And I know that hanging at my birthday party helped cheer you up during that whole mess with the 17-year-old. So I decided to put a little something together for you. It’s a photo gallery of us. I wrote down memories with each photo, like they do on Facebook. I hope it brings you happiness.

  1. Madge said a true fan would not LEAK the song. She's certainly not going to fault a fan for listening to her songs! Hell-O?! Check your source material again, Towleroad.

    Beat me to it, @Journalism?

    Why is it when our opponents are eager to reproach gays by taking quotes out of context or twisting the truth, Towleroad gets all righteous about it, but Towleroad gets to do it so casually to others? Hypocrisy anyone?

    Another quote from Guy O's twitter feed, (the same feed the first quote was taken from):

    "she is only upset with whoever leaked the music.. we would love to know who that is.."

    Seriously. It seems like the Towleroad guys are so eager to post negative stories about Madonna that I'm starting to wonder if its pathological.

    Kinda like Occupy Wall Street being endorsed by the American Nazi Party?

  4. Max, there is a difference between acting of your own accord and getting an unfortunate endorsement from outsiders who agree with your action, and taking part in a forum organized from the get-go by racists.

  5. The Nazis endorsing OWS must really piss off those Tea Party members who liked to dress up as Nazis on the weekend.

    Yeah, whatever, sis, I've been on the earth nearly three decades (next year is my 30th birthday) and I've managed to miss out on two essential components of human nature: romantic love AND sex.
