    A little, sure I can agree with that. This bat is off her rocker. Hope we do not see a trend of this and some small cult that gets based off of her.

    I'n starting to like this woman.

    Anyway, she looks good in jeans!

    "She is also in charge of making her husband look presentable"

    Doesn't she know any good barbers?

    This has got to be the best article JT has ever posted! The next first lady of the number 2 economy on the planet is freekin’ nuts! I am literally wiping the tears from my eyes, “Most Bizarre Things I’ve Encountered”. Me too angel. Me too!

    I like Mr Hatoyama, but I am disappointed to learn that his wife is dillusional and needs psychiatric treatment.

    Trips to Venus? Maybe that's where she found the "alien"?

    At least she has a sense of humour which will probably come in handy during the days ahead. Good for her!

    At least there will be a little color in the seat of power sphere this time around.

    Spiritualism is fine in moderation and with reason. But seems the world is just as full of people ready to believe anything as it was thousands of years ago. Perhaps it is the nature of humanity to need such stories and dreams to find reality in existence.

    Maybe I should start that new church afterall...

    She also claims that her soul has traveled to Venus on a UFO.

    Yeah? I'll have whatever she's smoking.

    I also eat the sun

    Is that what the drug is called?

    “My husband has recently started doing that too,”

    Yup, Japan's screwed.

    You must not live here. The whole country is already kooky.

    This is the same as Nancy Reagan and her astrologists.... it will all blow over.

    The wife of a PM is not a first lady. Mrs. Brown is not Britain's first lady; that's a silly thing to say.

    Eh? According to Oxford English Dictionary a "first lady" is "the wife of the President of the US or other head of state". The BBC has no problem describing Mrs Brown as Britain's first lady.

    So the husband is an alien and the wife is "different". It seems that we are going to be in for one hell of a ride.

    Perhaps the new Prime Minister might consider having his wife become the Foreign Minister. Can you imagine the confusion that trips to Venus would cause overseas?

    Well this explains the jeans she wore when casting her vote but clearly this woman should be censored. Traveled to Venus....? its Green? eats the sun....? hum....hum...hum...? Mr. Hatoyama also eats the sun...? They must be part of one of Japans weird religious cults although it seems a harmless one so far.

    Based on my experiences in this country, and with no desire to appear derogatory or sarcastic, I'd describe Mrs. Hatoyama's hallucinations and fantasies as completely normal behavior for a Japanese woman.

    If ever Mrs Hatoyama meets Mrs Obama I wonder what they'll talk about?

    Mrs. O.: How did Obama City get its name, Miyuki?

    Mrs. H.: He lived there in a previous lifetime. By the way, you have a very nice aura.

    I saw Tom Cruise 3 previous lifes ago. He was Fijian at that time. Probably just working his way around the Pacific Rim. Currently I'm Australian which is a change from being an Inuit last time. Those winters are harsh.

    The lead actor is Tom Cruise, of course. Why? Because I know he was Japanese in a previous life.

    Given that he was why would he recognise her? She was obviously a fruit cake in her previous life!

    I'm disappointed that there is not a bigfoot or chupacabra element to her story. Afterall, aren't all triangle shaped alien spacecraft driven by random X-files characters?

    Can't help but wonder how much of this stuff the hubby has subscribed to.

    If I was Hatoyama, I'd be making damn sure she didn't go anywhere near a camera or reporter for the next several years. It's going to be a matter of days before this is the laughing stock of the western world.

    It's going to be interesting to see how she handles the publicity and if she has her husband's ear. But it might be useful. Maybe she can get her alien friends to zap Kim Jong Il? Of course they refer to her husband as "the alien." Maybe they are right and this is the first interspecies marriage on record?

    We're going to have fun with this, aren't we?

    There was a rumor that Yukio Hatoyama is a Freemason and she claiming that traveled to Venus in a triangular shaped UFO, I think that tells something. Also Hatoyama's nicknames isn't "alien"?

    There is the ontological problem that a soul, being non-physical, does not need - actually, could not use - a physical vehicle (space ship) to travel. Or perhaps her soul was travelling in a space ship soul.

    It wasn't Venus she traveled to, it was Planet X. That's where she picked up that Miss Namikawa hairdo. And it was actually Russ Tamblyn she met in a previous incarnation, not TC. She must be having some Matango for breakfast every morning along with her sunshine. And if I'm not mistaken, the Mu's were completely destroyed by Atragon in 1963. I didn't know they were still in business.

    Or perhaps there really is more to it that many people just close their minds off from thinking that they already know the answers, and know everything that is out there.

    The prime minister is not the head of state. That's the Queen in the UK and the Emperor in Japan.
