Honest… I ran out of gas. I… I had a flat tire. I didn’t have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn’t come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts!

IT WASN’T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD!”

It must be this cruel world, or the press always ready to do what the old politics ask to do, or maybe a very negative astral conjunction, but surely it wasn’t Beppe Grillo’ s fault, it was not this great, great web-guru that caused to Five Stars Movement a new electoral debacle, because He said so and that means it is true! And if someone inside his no-party says something different… well, that person can leave Five Stars, exactly what Senator Adele Gambaro, who dared to criticize him, should do (today the guru dedicated her a very inspired and gandhian post on his HolyBlog in which he reminded her that she is totally worthless), after all in the end a web-plebiscite will tell who will be the Movement ‘s leader (obviously Beppe Grillo, this visionary politician).

(…and if Italians persist in refusing to follow him. to understand his gandhian philosophy, his elegant metaphors and his extraordinary sense of democracy…well, too bad for them!)

“Dico sul serio…ero rimasto senza benzina. Avevo una gomma a terra. Non avevo i soldi per prendere il taxi. La tintoria non mi aveva portato il tight. C’era il funerale di mia madre. É crollata la casa. C’è stato un terremoto. Una tremenda inondazione. Le cavallette!

NON È  STATA COLPA MIA, LO GIURO SU DIO!”

Deve essere tutta colpa di questo mondo crudele, della stampa serva dei vecchi partiti corrotti e corruttori o magari di una pessima congiunzione astrale, ma sicuramente non è colpa di quel gran web-guru di Beppe Grillo se i pentastellati si sono presi un’altra sonora batosta al secondo turno delle elezioni locali (che poi era il primo turno in Sicilia) perché lo dice lui e quindi è vero! Se poi   qualcuno nel non-partito dice il contrario… beh può pure andarsene, come dovrebbe fare la Senatrice Gambaro che ha osato criticarlo (e a cui il guru, in un ispirato post sul SacroBlog, ha gandhianamente ricordato che non vale niente) tanto alla fine un  web-plebiscito dirà che la leadership del Movimento spetta di diritto a quel gran politico visionario che è Beppe Grillo.

(…e se gli italiani tutti non riescono a capire la sua politica gandhiana, le sue raffinate metafore ed il soprattutto il suo straordinario senso della democrazia… beh, peggio per loro!)
