Vote for the LDP because...
So, noticed this morning that despite Aso's (Our Dear Leader) protestations to not stand for amakudari - the practice of giving cushy top jobs in private industry to bureaucrats who were supposed to be watching for wrong-doing in the same companies - he was in fact lying or just writing cheques that his body politic just couldn't cash. Or something. The story is here if you care to see in black and white more evidence that money talks. Incidentally, amakudari sounds a bit like the kind of sake brewed in Okinawa which Our Man is making heavy weather of getting through (much like this post, eh readers?).
Anyway, Our Man was wondering just what the hell the LDP (Aso's gang) is going to stand for in the general election (which must be just weeks away now). For the DPJ, it's a no-brainer:
We're the party of change (ish).
For the LDP????
