He may mock Huffington because he may know that she is not using the power of her blog to social mobilize a political force like Beppe Grillo has done in Italy with his blog. Living in Italy you should know that!!But then again if you only read the mass media in Italy, you are also not aware of Beppe Grillo and if you do, you are told how to view him by media outlets controlled by the government and media outlets controlled by the mafia tainted Berlusconi.
I'm not interested in Italian politics.
But you and your family live there. Are you saying you are not involved and active in the democratic process there? Being active and involved merely only means voting...
