People in Japan have their panties in wad over the Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama's flannel shirt he wore to a recent event. They're even saying Yukio's technicolor shirt corresponds with his 67% disapproval rating.
Really? That's harsh!
One critic wrote in a newspaper article:
"This shirt comes from the '80s or '90s. His ideas and philosophy are old. Japan is facing a crisis and we can't overcome it with a prime minister like this."
And this is all because of one shirt? You crazy, Japan!
One government affairs consultant echoed the article saying:
"The press and the media are starting to nitpick on, really, things that are irrelevant to the future of the Japanese people but I would expect that to continue. Whether he's not dressing properly, goes to the wrong restaurants, spends too much on dinner, what his wife is wearing. It goes from the politics of policy to the politics of personality. And that doesn't help Japan."
The people of Japan can think all they want of that shirt, but we just have one question. Where can we get one?
