Now THIS is Funny!

Obama isn't black. He just has a good tan!
Berlusconi calls Obama 'tanned' again

Premier Silvio Berlusconi is still talking about President Barack Obama's "tan", and this time the gaffe-prone Italian leader has made a wisecrack about Michelle Obama's skin colour as well.

Berlusconi told a Milan rally of conservative supporters on Sunday he was bringing greetings from the United States from "What's his name? Some tanned guy. Ah, Barack Obama!"

Shortly after Obama's election in November 2008, Berlusconi raised eyebrows by saying the victor was "young, handsome, and even has a good tan".

This time, Berlusconi, a billionaire media mogul who began his career as a cruise ship entertainer, also took a jab at the First Lady.

"You won't believe it," he said, "but two of them went to the beach because the wife is also tanned."

Berlusconi is known for his gaffes.
To me, it's only a gaffe if it's unintentional. I think Berlusconi knew exactly what he was saying.

You gotta love this guy. At least he is one leader who doesn't have his head up Obama's ass and perhaps sees the current US president for the charlatan/Manchurian Elect that he is.

Of course, the article's writer doesn't find it very humorous as he felt compelled to mention the fact that Berlusconi himself admits to admiring younger women and suggests that Berlusconi patronizes prostitutes - even though there is no evidence or law enforcement investigation to support that claim....
The 72-year-old Berlusconi has made no secret for his admiration of attractive women. He has been on the defensive in a sex scandal that erupted last spring after his wife complained he was infatuated with young women and announced she was divorcing him.

Prosecutors in the southern city of Bari are investigating a local businessman, a suspect in a cocaine investigation, who has said he sent about 30 young women to dinners and parties at Berlusconi's Rome palazzo residence and Sardinian villa. The businessman told investigators he paid the women's expenses and in some cases extra money in case they had sex with the premier. But he stressed Berlusconi was unaware of these arrangements.

Berlusconi, who isn't under investigation in the scandal, has denied ever paying for sex.
...but the media will plant that seed anyway. That way, the public won't take much of what he says seriously.

And you gotta love this, too.
The premier, commenting on Obama's use of a teleprompter in public speeches, cracked: "He's not reckless like those of us who say what comes to mind."

"We all asked ourselves, 'Does he know what he's doing, or is he just someone who knows how to read well?'"
