Rude-word campaign rocks Italy's political classes
ROME (Reuters) - An Italian comedian's campaign using a rude word to tell off politicians has won the support of more than 300,000 Italians who signed petitions to sweep away a generation of lawmakers they say are corrupt and ineffective.
An estimated 40,000 people attended Grillo's rally in Bologna on Saturday and many more went to hundreds of similar "Vaffanculo-day" protests around the country. The word is the Italian equivalent of the "f"-word in English.
The campaign is another embarrassment for Italy's political class which for years has been characterised by back-biting, cronyism and sleaze.

A book on politicians' excessive perks and lavish expenses has become this year's surprise best-seller and fuelled a growing disaffection among Italians that the media have dubbed "anti-politics".
