Berlusconi abstinence

At a recent rally, Silvio Berlusconi, Italy’s PM, made a pledge to abstain from sex until the general election in April; “I will try to meet your expectations, and I promise from now on, two-and-a-half months of absolute sexual abstinence, until 9 April,” Mr. Berlusconi said.

I hope he does not ask his people to make the same sacrifice; because who knows what kind of result will spring from 50+ million Italian voters who will not have had sex for two and a half months. It could be worse that Berlusconi.
