Italian Elections 2006

Following up on the Fistful of Euros post about the Italian elections ... I read a comment there that led me over to Wind Rose Hotel, where the blogger had written a reply.
Under the title, Italian Elections 2006 the author begins with, Giovanni Sartori is a prominent Italian political scientist. Born in Florence in 1924, as most of his fellow citizens he has a temper, which sometimes seems to cloud his political judgment. Nonetheless, one could not help but think that he is justified in passing contemptuous judgments such as the following: 'The election on 9-10 April does not appeal to me in the least. Not at all and in no respect. Were I to write on the subject, I would say bad things about everyone involved. So I won’t.'
