You reap what you sow

Outgoing Italin prime minister Berlusconi is having quite the tantrum over his loss. The loss is well-deserved, not just because he's crooked, but in a much more richly ironic and poetically just way. The ridiculous scheme of the Berlusconi government to define Italian citizenship by bloodline rather than residency - thereby allowing people of Italian ancestry who live outside of the country to vote - ended up costing the government the election, with the out-of-country Italians casting the deciding votes.

It seems just, because the plan was unapologetically fascist in nature - defining Italians by race, rather than citizenship, something racist-fascists are constantly obsessed with. It's nice to see it backfire so brilliantly.
