    under 50cc motorbike rider will do the same if he finds DPJ speaker somewhere around.

    My guy waves to all of them. They say thank you to him in English.

    The slogan on the helmet 'In the race of life' interestingly ironic.

    I would call that a scooter more than I would a motorbike... or maybe a moped.

    I wish they would do away with these loud speaker vehicals. They just seem useless when they are driving around and only saying the name of the candidate, the name of the party and some general message about how they are there to make Japan great.

    One of these vans tried to navigate the narrow roads around my house. When they came the narrow alley that leads to my front door, my husband and I told them that they were not allowed to proceed down the narrow streets in our area and they would have to back out. They did so but boy was it noisy for the 15 minutes it took them to go down a 20 meter zigzag alley thats only about 2 meters at its widest.

    These are the jerks yelling in to a loudspeaker in front of your local station every day. Be sure to thank them.

    Why all this hype in the media, including JT, for the LDP? Isn't this press bias?

    because JT knows most of the readers have no voting right but they can "click good/bad" icon that's what is important for them.

    I think he is holding up a few too many fingers.

    I gave Abe a wave the other morning, using far fewer fingers than this.

    Next time I see him, I'll give him a couple of cheeks as well.

    Why wait for an opportunity? Create your own. Head on down to the LDP headquaters. They are not hard to find (pretty close to the Diet Bulding). You can walk right to the front gate, turn around, and give him salute. I'm sure the Jcops guarding the place will get a good chuckle out of it.
