Are you all tooled up with your swingometers and election district widgets for the big one? The Tokyo Municipal Elections on Sunday!!!?! Nahhh, Our Man neither. While the brainier bloggers are hanging with the pols searching for tidbits on the trail of the tofu-tosser vans, Our Man is sitting this one out. How come? He's bored. Reeeeeally bored. MTC (the TC stands for Top Cat) at Shisaku calls this one - the DPJ should take Tokyo, but when they do it will hardly be the ringing endorsement they will proclaim. Ho hum. Will another of Our Man's prophesies come true?
Recite the mantra: Parties don't win elections, they lose them. Ommmm.
Meanwhile, back in Abiko, the fleet needs a new lick of paint and lease of life to protect the womenfolk from the massed ranks of the Nork Synchronised Swimming Corps. Await further instructions.
