Here's a post that shows up Our Man's complete lack of knowledge (agaiiiin?) about what he ostensibly writes about - Japanese politics. Well, see here, the Mainichi Daily News (pedants will note that "mainichi" means daily, so really the virtual newspaper's name is tautologically "The Daily Daily News", which is just silly silly, but Our Man says: damn you pedants, you've ruined this sentence) has a little of the continuing saga of the Japanese Prime Minister's minion's missing millions:
Our Man invites you to read the story. Looking bad for the PM? You're darn tootin'. Because if he's found guilty he could face a fine of ¥500,000!!!!! (That's about $5,000). Yikes, where's the heir of the Bridgestone fortune gonna find that kind of money? Oh wait, he could dip into the secret cabinet fund here.
BTW, did anyone catch the puff piece in the Japan Times about Alistair Campbell, Tony Blair's spin bowler, praising the DPJ's PR? Perhaps he should remind Hatoyama of Blair's winning slogan: Tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime.
Maybe Hatoyama should turn himself in now, eh readers, saving us all the tedious manhunt?
