    Default two articles about Japan

    i dunno how much you guys care about actual japanese politics - admittedly, they're quite dull - but these caught my eye and i thought some may find them interesting.

    Japanese politics, you say, Misty? Compared to that North Korean missile launch earlier this evening, Japan's cute power projection is much more lighthearted. I would definitely laugh with delight if that country chose as its next cute ambassador(s) Pikachu, Piplup, or even both. I will welcome the continuation of Japan's alliance with America in order to give the light of freedom a chance to shine in East Asia.
    Pearlshipper, Courting Commander, or political junkie? I am many things at once, and I've united these interests under a single basic idea. Just as I supported former President George Walker Bush's basic optimism about freedom, I now support Ash and Dawn's basic optimism about themselves, each other, and their Pokémon, so that more people can believe that a genuinely better way does exist for humankind.
