The government of (my) best


Slippery term

At the time of writing, the composition of the possible Draghi executive is not yet known.
There is insistent talk of government of the best. Which presupposes a certain risk. Better, in fact, means superior to someone. But it presupposes a comparison. Example: “In Italian I am better than Toninelli” invariably applies to Piero Dorfles and any of Toninelli’s nephews. With a capital letter, the adjective already adds a clearer variable. Better was Palmiro Togliatti, secretary of the PCI who led the Communists from the Bolshevik revolution to at least a decent faith in democracy.

Better is also Gennaro, former exponent of the Communist Refoundation, who passed through Italia Viva, which is like going from a Palestinian club to the management of a delicatessen, with which in the past I have long played at Ruzzle: he was better than me. The best was the communist current headed by Giorgio Napolitano who aspired, if not to the best of all possible worlds, at least to a parcel improvement of things or, as happened to half the Milanese party, to a too sudden improvement of their finances. It didn’t end very well. Best is Draghi, by Conte. Probably of each of its predecessors, but here we fall back into the Toninelli theorem above. There remains the hope of a government of the best which, however, representing, as I have just shown, a questionable concept, concerns personal tastes.

Everyone has their best. For this reason I have just drawn up a ranking of my best that I submit to the Premier so that he can evaluate it at least, where possible, for the plethora of undersecretaries and deputy ministers. Which, being in the odor of choice between parties, could easily be no better than anyone. I mean: the League has Durigon. What are we talking about.

President of the Council of Ministers

Mario Draghi

Minister for relations with the parliament

Giancarlo Magalli (has been minding your own business for years and is a friend of the PDC)

Defense Minister

Leonardo Bonucci (it is better for me to indicate a former AC Milan player, so my maronis have a better ending)

Transport Minister

Maria De Filippi (and go by bike, the best choice for the environment)

Interior Minister

Commissioner Rex (reported directly by Merkel: the best)

Ministers of Culture

Fedez and Chiara Ferragni (communicating on Tiktok would make the state budget better)

Minister of Justice

Flavio Insinna (best for the forcaioli – he does the guillotine every evening) but also for the guarantors (in case of disputes, he already comes with the notary from home)

Minister of Economy

Benedetta Rossi (to recycle leftovers, she is the best)

Ministers of Education and the Family

Piero and Alberto Angela (the best)

Foreign Minister

Luigi Di Maio (believe me: leaving him out of Italy is the best choice)

Minister for relations with Saudi Arabia

Guess what? And the best part is that they pay for it. (continues)

Judgment: The best.
