With their angry fists, now I think they are both psycho. Thanks, Japan, for not offering me the vote. Still, I would not recommend these two by their looks. Though I like how they keep their daddy-son relationship ambiguous: pair look with matching black suits, button down collars and no ties. Clearly inter-generational, but is it biological, political, or sexual?
Pokemon says “no” to bottle of booze, green tea, congratulatory and funeral flowers, school children’s backpacks, incense, expensive fruit baskets, and gifts of rice. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry seeing this government poster. Is it patronizing, funny or just ridiculous?
Given widespread corruption, not so different in Japan as in the United States– including dead people voting, illegal corporate contributions and staggering levels of distrust– do citizens need a children’s cartoon to tell them about the dangers and illegality of accepting small gifts from politicians?
Are small gifts the reason why Japanese politics are so dismal?
Japan, like many nations, has far too many ugly politicians. Fortunately, this Daddy Son pair from the Democratic Party of Japan are providing some sex appeal, photogenic optimism, and at least a few dirty thoughts. Yes, they can!
