I bet he will enjoy ordinary life better than being an PM.

He seems pretty happy for someone who's just lost his job. I guess the message here is: when you're on the ropes, call in the umeboshi girls.

The girl on the left seems to be thinking, "Why are we having a photo op with this failure? My modeling career is ruined due to this embarrassing gig!"

I only have two words for the one who came up with the Mr. Burns analogy...

EXXXXcellent post!

So their handing him his 'plums', eh? Didn't think he had any left after the past eight months of conceding to the bureaucrats and the US military.
