Koizumi Landslide

You just have to admire Prime Minister Koizumi...he's got a set of grapes the likes of which Japan hasn't seen since Godzilla. His LDP party won a crushing landslide victory in parliamentary elections today, clearing the way for his plan to privatize the postal service (something we should have done a long time ago!) and putting Japan back on economic track. I love politicians that are willing to take risks, especially when it's in the interest of laissez-faire capitalism.
