There have been astonishing volumes of nonsense written about the Italian election. If you believed the MSM, ranging from NPR on over, you would believe the world was about to end, the barbarians were at the gates. It seems the Italian electorate has acted so terribly irresponsibly, by failing to vote for the austerity regime demanded by banks and currently tearing apart Greece. And the people they voted for – quelle horreur — they have no political experience. They could do anything!
How refreshing, therefore, to see a corrective: Invia i Pagliacci! Ci Devono Essere Pagliacci! [extended play]. Worth a look if you can stand to escape from the standard narrative now dominating.
