New day, new Prime Minister........

It was all Abe all the time at our place last night. NHK had a special news broadcast to celebrate the election of Shinzo Abe ( pronounced AH be, not Abe). The 52-year-old president of the ruling LDP is the youngest postwar prime minister and the first to be born after World War II.

He has already named his cabinent. What is left to be discovered are such weighty questions as these:

1) Since Koizumi was "Bush's poodle", what canine moniker will the new Prime Minster pick up?

2) Does the new PM like Elvis?

3) When will be the best day to piss off both the Chinese and Koreans by taking a jaunt through Yasukuni?
