Mike Gravel’s Running Mate

Gentlemen and Ladies, I give you Toyama Koichi.. Who I am certain will not let his being neither a Democrat nor an American stop him from the march to the White House. Which he will then proceed to destroy. Hopefully with laser beams.

“I DO NOT HAVE A SINGLE CONSTRUCTIVE PROPOSAL!”

The Asahi Shimbun has more on Koichi’s candidate for the Tokyo prefecture governership, for which he garnered 15,000 presumably confused votes.

Koichi Toyama, 36, who is also running against Ishihara, is calling on voters to stage a revolt against the government–but only after they have had their fill of beer.

Japan responded to his candidacy the only way they knew how.

Unfortunately, the winner, while still a menace, isn’t nearly as fun.
