Germany Clowns

Now, even the clowns themselves are involved. Three days after Peer Steinbrück, the Social Democratic candidate to challenge Chancellor Angela Merkel in elections this autumn, referred to Italian political leaders Silvio Berlusconi and Beppe Grillo as "clowns," the head of Germany's most famous circus has expressed his displeasure at being compared to the former Italian prime minister.
"A circus clown is no fool who can be placed on the same level as Berlusconi," Bernhard Paul, director of Circus Roncalli, told the German news agency DPA. "Being a clown is an honorable, very difficult, sensitive and artistic occupation," he said. "How can you compare that with bunga bunga?" he added, in reference to Berlusconi's infamous frolicking with women a fraction of his age.

Paul's comments on Thursday were but a side show in the spectacle that has developed since Steinbrück made his comments on Tuesday night. "To a certain degree, I am horrified that two clowns won the election," Steinbrück said. One of them, he said in reference to Grillo, "is a professional clown who has nothing against being called one." The other, he went on, "is a clown with an excess of testosterone."
