Bush And Koizumi Cute As A Button (2005-12-08)
In a style in sync with Japanese way of doing business which is to
use a bit of cuteness in even the most boring situations--like
listening to a bunch of politicians talk about Bush's visit--a TV
program put up a pair of Bush and Koizumi figurines on the news
desk. The dolls actually made those two people look cute,
something they are not in real life.
KL and I tuned in and stayed on the program longer than we anticipated. While the analysts were yapping away, we were lauging at the dolls' comical portrayal of the figure heads. "Meet The Press" can be uplifting and fun, if only they can liven up the stage a bit with some silly dolls.
