(3Yen / 2012-12-14)
SMILES for sad-sack Japan!
The only candidate in Japan that would get my vote (if I could vote), is the “Smile Party” candidate, Mac Akasaka, who sadly announced in tears his retirement from running for office in the National Diet.
According to the headlines.yahoo.co.jp (2013 August 2)—goofy Google Translate:
Mac Akasaka retires campaigning! Peace operations declaration of tears!
Headlines Yahoo (Google Translate)
…famous for his “smile therapy”, Mac has run for election again and again over the years…He had stated that before, “retirement I must reach the 50,000 votes”… based on the his recent “success” [defeat] in the general election last month, he declared on a talk show yesterday that, “will not go out electioneering anymore!”
