Japan goes to the dogs

It will be fun laughing at Aso for the next so many years.

You assume Aso will be in power for so many years. I’d bet on maybe 2 at the most, and probably far less. Most of his views aren’t popular in Japan, especially his militarism.

I for one am shocked and amazed by this entirely unanticipated development in Japanese politics.

I just hope he manages to push through some reforms after all the work he did undermining Fukuda. And if he doesn’t, I hope he fails so miserably that a two party system finally emerges in Japan. The LDP is so close to being shoved out on its ass, and just needs a little more failure to finish the job.

I can see myself objectively. I am not like you!
