Silvio Berlusconi - Making It Too Easy

I'm not going to pretend that Silvio Berlusconi is anything more than the worst kind of reactionary, macho slimeball. That said, only a person of that caliber of quality could make what should be a normal insistence he's never hired prostitutes be so sexist: ''I've never paid a woman. I never understood where the satisfaction is when you're missing the pleasure of conquest."

Ah, yes - conquest. How men who view women as nothing more than objects to be sexually "conquered" view sex. It's nice to see that, in all of his protestations of innocence in his latest scandal, Berlusconi hasn't lost his ability to be an insufferable, sexist piece of filth of the lowest level.
