please let me flail for a moment here. everything is politics and beautiful and nothing hurts.  
So the definitive results for administrative elections that were happening in the country this month are in.

B/the PM's party managed to lose in 85% of the places. AND IN HIS HOMETOWN. AND IN THE TOWN HE ACTUALLY RESIDES IN. In his hometown his side had been governing for.. way too much time. And the last time they had two turns (which they didn't win anyway) was in 1991. And in Naples they lost so hard that I had to pinch myself because I was sure I was dreaming.

My face for the last three hours was like this:



I mean. I just. It wasn't even my city but it's such a sign that I can't help the perpetual grinning. And sorry but I've been politically frustrated since I could vote and every-damn-time in which there were elections my side never really managed to win so blatantly. (Heck, there's a reason why B.'s still there.)

I'm just. I know how awesome it feels to feel good because of politics. Brb savoring the sensation and not envying everyone else anymore. If this ends up being the starting point to send B. away for good I'll be a happy person for real. And this after this week he said that if you vote left wing you're brainless. (Seriously.) Well. Get this. *flails some more* *would open up expensive alcohol if she had any*

Okay, that's it. Sorry, I'll be checking the news and flailing like a mad thing while grinning at the same time.

I still won't believe it, I still won't believe it, I still won't believe it...

But just in case, LET'S PARTY



PS: OMFG, I can't even IMAGINE politics without Berlusconi, how SAD is that. He's been fucking there my WHOLE CONSCIOUS LIFE ALMOST :///

AT LEAST YOU HAVE THE ALMOST. WHEN HE GOT ELECTED IN 2001 I WAS LIKE TWELVE. HE'S BEEN THERE FOR MY -ENTIRE- CONSCIOUS LIFE, I CAN'T EVEN PUT THE ALMOST IN :(((

And I know. But isn't it just SWEET to think that one day we finally might get boring politicians who don't tell jokes and don't like underage girls? I'M SO READY FOR IT.

AND HAHAHAH THAT'S TOTALLY MY FACE WHEN IT ISN'T LIKE THE GIF I POSTED BEFORE XD

Good for you & for your country! That sounds like a big step in the right direction.

I know? I can only hope B. doesn't last for the entire term and that next elections he gets as soundly beaten as in these ones. But seriously I'm so happy. And it's relieving not to think 'WHY DO PEOPLE VOTE FOR HIS SIDE' right now. ;)

He lost in his own hometown? LOL!

\o/ So at long last, the dragon has been slain. No more Berlusconi? Congratulations! NOW LET THE PARTY BEGIN!!

In his hometown AND in the two places where he owns his two biggest villas and resides LOLOLOL I'M STILL RUBBING MY HANDS. XDD

And heee, he's still at the government but this has been a slap to his face of major proportions. And if his major allies decide that he's not worth it and pull the plug THEN HE'S GONE. I'm crossing my fingers so hard.

I've been practically flailing for the last 5plus hours.

Maybe it won't change shit around here, but it sure is a big sign that Italian people are fed up with B. and the right-wing bullshit.

And I'll take what I can, 'cause I've been shaking my head at how pathetic our left-wing has been for as long as I can remember and we actually won in a big city, for once, and we actually won over most of the country, and daaaaamn, it feels good.

Also, LOL, Arcore. Way too kick your "master" in the shins, I applaud you.

Totally wearing orange tomorrow (funny coincidence, it's both Pisapia and Misha's color. El. Oh. Freakin' el.). Sadly enough, I don't have my orange Chuck Taylors, but I'll make do anyway.

I KNOW? I'm sure that your flailing >>> my flailing but then again I don't live in Milan. Talk to me at the next elections where we kick Alemanno out and I'll glee as much as you - though it won't be as big.

it sure is a big sign that Italian people are fed up with B. and the right-wing bullshit.

I KNOW? How many cities did they win, five on 29? That's a sign indeed. Now let's just hope that those idiots in the left wing understand that we'll vote them with a lot more pleasure if they do things like this all the time instead of arguing, shall they.

AHAHAHAHAH ARCORE SCORE. I LOVE ARCORE RN. And Olbia too, lol. *raises fist*

... AHA I HADN'T MADE THE CONNECTION BUT SEE, IT ALL GETS BACK TO THE FACT THAT MISHA IS AWESOME. ;) actually you should tweet him about it. ;) ;) and tomorrow I'm totally taking the robot shirt out of the closet, since it's currently the only orange thing I have handy. ;)
hell on wheels: I see France...galain_7 on May 31st, 2011 07:15 am (UTC)
And Novara and Pavia *still shocked*

Ah, I'll be cheering right with you at the next Rome elections!

Didn't even think about tweeting Misha, lol. I did, in the end, after reading your suggestion.

Yesterday I went to Duomo Square to celebrate. It was awesome!

I'm so happy. I can't believe I finally understood how sweet it is when your side wins. ;)

the female ghost of tom joad: politicsjanie_tangerine on May 31st, 2011 09:22 pm (UTC)
I KNOW? I'm just praying people in the left wing actually take advantage of this. If they do he's so screwed :DDD
