Italian-Americans Carping Over Fact that African-Americans Got to White House First

MOSCOW (AP) - Italy's Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, in a not-too-subtle dig at his American brothers, described U.S. President-elect Barack Obama on Thursday as "young, handsome and even tanned."

Berlusconi appeared to be joking about America's first black president at a news conference following talks with Russia's president.

"I hope the first black President doesn't encounter the problems that plagued the first Italian-American President," Berlusconi cracked. "Remember him? Remember how he had to endure all those, "That's amore'!" shouts while he was trying to make policy?"

I chuckled a little at the idea of half of Jersey all on CNN crying because they just elected an Italian.
