Today's Cartoon: Italy's Prime Minister Romano Prodi Resigns

Well, it looks like the United States is responsible for yet another "regime change"; except now they've gotten so good at it that the US no longer needs to actually invade other countries. Instead, it seems that all they have to do is simply get that nation to re-affirm its commitment to the "War on Terror" and their government is as good as gone.

Some people may view Italy's record of 61 governments since World War Two as an indicator of the country's long history of political instability, but not me. Instead, I prefer to view these incidences of scandal, corruption and non-confidence votes, as mere opportunities for the Italian people to celebrate their love of the democratic process, by giving each of them the chance to serve as Prime Minister, for about six weeks ;)
