Berlusconi: blame it on biology

In the daily To Vima the columnist Lori Keza pokes fun at the love life of Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi: "Uncle Silvio has certainly managed to do one thing: at 73 he's got the whole world talking about his supposed love life. ... Women, women, women. Does the old man perhaps want to send out the message that he's still sexually active? Medicine provides the answer. At his age he's a dud at best; and if he takes too many pills his heart'll explode. It makes no difference how much plastic surgery he has, how much hair he has implanted or how many gifts he distributes. His sex organ just won't play along, and will call a quick halt to whatever adventures Berlusconi may have in mind. That is amply shown by the statistics. ... It seems that part of the population admires him for his conquests. ... Although the papers cast him in the role of an aging satyr [a lecherous figure from Greek mythology], he is topping popularity charts. Not in the surveys, but where opinion really counts, at the polls."
