Obama Gives Ferrari Money To Italy Earthquake Appeal

by | 7th, April 2009

THE US of A is giving Italy $50,000 to solve the Eartquake issue. Or a Ferrari.

As IHTM says: “We’re ponying up $50,000 for our long-time allies? The munificence of it all just begs for comment”

1. That’s not even a down payment on a 2009 Ferrari 599 (manufacturer’s suggested retail price $320,580)

2. Maybe they could also toss in some DVDs and a couple iPods.

3. If Italy accepts their bailout money, will Obama have the power to remove Berlusconi? (Jonah Goldberg at National Review).

4. For a few grand more the local Italian mayor can pretend the whole thing never happened…
