I see you shiver with antici…pation.”

Today is the day: Americans are choosing the man who will be their President for the next four years. Here in the outskirts of the Empire, asking ourselves if they are aware of the influence their choice will have on international policies and watching with some apprehension to the various and sometimes very peculiar voting procedures, we hold our breath because this neck and neck race evoke the spectre of the 2000 Presidential election, the recount and (oh,my god!) the final result… It’s not my intention to interfere in someone else choice, but recently Mr Romney said that with President Obama America will end up like Italy (Spain, and Greece…)… As I told you, it’s not my intention to interfere, but this man’s policies and ideas remind me (except for Bunga Bunga) to those of the great, great Italian Statesman who’s still trying to decide whether to leave politics or not, you know, the great friend of George W. Bush and Vladimir Putin, the man who made Italy end up like Italy: Mr B. It’s not my intention to interfere (and it’s not my fault if that gives you the shiver)… but I’m keeping my finger crossed.

Vi vedo rabbrividire per l’at…tesa.”

Oggi è il giorno: gli Americani scelgono l’uomo che sarà il loro Presidente per i prossimi quattro anni. Qui, nella periferia dell’Impero, chiedendoci se si rendono conto dell’influenza che la loro scelta avrà sulla politica mondiale e guardando con una certa apprensione alle numerose e talvolta davvero singolari procedure di voto, tratteniamo il fiato perché questa corsa testa a testa evoca lo spettro delle Presidenziali del 2000, il riconteggio dei voti e (oddio!!) il risultato finale… Non ho alcuna intenzione di intromettermi nelle scelte altrui, ma recentemente Romney (lo sfidante) ha detto che con Obama (il presidente uscente) l’America farà la fine dell’Italia (della Spagna, e della Grecia)… Come ho detto, non è mia intenzione intromettermi, ma a me le politiche e le idee di quest’uomo ricordano quelle del grande, grande statista Italiano che sta ancora cercando di decidere se sia giunto il momento di ritirarsi oppure no (ok, Bunga Bunga a parte), il grande amico di George W. Bush e Vladimir Putin, l’uomo che ha fatto fare all’Italia la fine dell’Italia: Mr B. Non è mia intenzione intromettermi (e non è colpa mia se questa idea fa venire i brividi)… io comunque sto tenendo le dita incrociate.
