Surprise, surprise. Another member of Shinzo Abe’s Cabinet acted like an ass–and his name is ASO, to boot.
The International Herald Tribune reports:
Japan’s outspoken foreign minister [Taro Aso] apologized Friday for joking that “even people with Alzheimer’s disease” would know the difference in price between Japanese and Chinese rice.
At least Asso was only referring to the disparity in p-rice and not quality, or he would have probably sparked rice riots all over Asia and possibly a full-blown rice war. Yukio Hatoyama, a leader of the opposition Democratic Party, summed it best when he said, “Abe’s Cabinet is filled with too many shameful ministers.”
