Senate Nonbinding Resolution Forces Resignation ...
Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi has handed his resignation to the country's president after losing a crucial foreign policy vote in the Senate.
Prodi resigned after his (non-binding!) motion to show support for the Italian government's foreign policy failed by two votes. Now the entire government might dissolve, because Parliamentary Democracies are all crazy.
Meanwhile here in America, we're stuck with all the 600-year-old rich white dudes in the Senate until we die, despite their being equally unable to successfully vote on whether they agree or disagree with the lunacy of our government's clusterfuck of a foreign policy.
