The Even Couple

The hour of gay marriage has not yet arrived in Italy, unlike France, various of the United States, and a handful of other countries around the world. That hasn't stopped Nichi Vendola from enjoying life in a long-term couple, nor from being the object of homophobic taunts from the Cavaliere and others. But in this charming tweet, where he labels himself and and his pal Pier Luigi a "de facto couple" (unless there is some nuance to the phrase I'm missing), he not only makes a well-aimed political point about the center-left alliance, but he shows that he at least, and Bersani too, are relaxed enough to have a little chuckle about the 'gay thing.'

He gets a perfect "10" on my scorecard.
