The candidate looks like he should be in a retirement home...looks like Abe has to support him so that the guy can even stand up...come to think of it most of the members of parliament are not much better. And the look of excitement on the guy,s face is just priceless.

As if it really maters who's in power in Japan...! Young, old, middle-aged, they all just maintain the status quo!
