Abe – A Man Out Standing in His Field

Abe Poster

The LDP leadership election was yesterday. Yasuo Fukuda (福田康夫), a monochrome septuagenarian, will be the new man in the ejector seat as of tomorrow. It was fun watching the CBC news online and hearing all the Canadian reporters try to say “Yasuo”, an apparently difficult word.

I went for a walk in the very welcome drizzle this afternoon. The farmer and LDP supporter at the intersection behind my building is not used to having to take down the posters on his fence so quickly. (that’s Shinzo Abe, the outgoing PM and party leader, looking as forlorn as he did for much of his one-year-less-a-day tenure; the Koizumi poster was up for years). A less charitable voter seems to have helped him out in one corner.
