The World’s Most Bitchinest-Dressed Politician Steps Down

June 2nd, 2010 | 5 comments | Posted by Jen

Following a political funding scandal and his failure to move a U.S. Marine Corps base off the island of Okinawa, Japanese PM Yukio Hatoyama resigned Wednesday after only eight months in office.

Beyond politics, Hatoyama was known for dressing in an outre 90′s sorta way and being married to Miyuki Hatoyama, who claimed to have known Tom Cruise in a past life and have been to outer space.

In other words, the Hatoyamas were the kind of people we’d like to party with.

Naoto Kan, Japan’s current Finance Minister, and Katsuya Okada, are rumored to be on the short-list of Hatoyama’s successors. According to Wikipedia, Kan’s hobby is the board game Go and Okada is an “avid collector” of…frog knick-knacks.

In other words, Hatoyama’s successor is the kind of person our Hardass Asian Parents would like to party with.

BOO. NO FUN.

    I have to say… I feel relieved. In terms of eccentricity, he is too close to Kim Jong-Il.

    I currently live in Japan, (note: moved here 9 months ago after reading Disgrasian faithfully for a year! Not sure how the two go together, but…)

    It is indeed a sad day! Many people are unhappy – but it seems that here, people DEMAND the Prime Ministers quit if they do not accomplish things immediately!
