I found Koizumi!
I was just walking around in Osaka the other day and I saw Koizumi giving a campaign speech! Election time is coming around, so he was making his appearances.
Fear the power of the zoom!
Some of the stuff he said that I could understand was...
"Osaka is important!"
"Cup Noodle started in Osaka!"
Thanks for the noodle props Koizumi! And, the Cup Noodle Museum is in Ikeda, for those who want to know.

Cool. One time I was in a working class area at the edge of Chicago with my cousin. We were only there because he's into trains and wanted to see something. And we ran right into a gathering for the elder Bush on his failed reelection campaign. Commando-types were on the nearby rooftops with huge binoculars scanning the air and ground. There was some loser dude at the back of the ground screaming at him about something. Trees, oil, trade, who knows? The message gets lost when you act like that.
in that last pic, it really seems like he was looking straight at you! Koizumi's cute with his grey hair :) lol
