Has anyone else noticed that Japan has gotten a new Prime Minister every September for several years now? It's like the Defense Against the Dark Arts of Japanese politics.

That fact confused and irritated me when considering that all those resigning Prime Ministers were from the incumbent party. At least they finally lost. Also, Hatoyama Yukio kills Dumbledore. — (talk) 03:12, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
