This coming from the state that had the 2003 recall elections which included, among others, the governator, the porn star Mary Carey, and Gary Coleman.

Russia has nothing on Japan.
They have no good candidates (they were all killd by communism), and those with potential just rip off ghostbusters.
Japan, however, has epic game shows, 3 alphabets, ramen, and clever people.

No contest.

I`m surprised they don`t have one good candidate... having an unqualified mayor during an olympics event could spell a lot of trouble. Wondering why that liberal party didn`t put up someone else; just about anyone they picked could beat those people, I would think.

First, I don`t see how this differs from the California Gubernatorial election that Arnold won.

Second, why do things always have to be the new something? 40 is the new 30. Blue is the new Red. It just doesn`t make any sense, especially when Japan is still going string in being a source for interesting things.

Only in America...Wait a minute...

I`m wondering how seriously the citizens will take this election. I mean California was able to get Schwarzenegger into office, its definitely a possibility for a porn star to win. Plus a topless campaign vid might win over a few on-the-fence voters.
