一言居士
– A person who has something to say about everything

“After I voted in favor of the no-confidence motion, I received about 4,000 e-mails and letters from people expressing their support and encouragement. Some of the messages say, ‘I wasn’t interested in politics, but I’ll pay attention now because there’s someone like you.’ Some of the praise is embarrassing.

“The 8th seems to have been the first anniversary of the Kan administration. Congratulations. But I’ve been observing events in Nagata-cho for 33 years since coming to work as an aide, and I regret to say that this is the most iniquitous and least effective government I’ve ever seen. What they say and what they do is an absolute shambles…

“Senior executives of the DPJ have made positive statements about the idea of a Grand Coalition between the DPJ and the LDP. But in 2007, when then-President Ozawa Ichiro sounded out Prime Minister Fukuda Yasuo about a Grand Coalition, he was harshly criticized by some people in the party. I think it’s time for those people to shut up.”

– Matsuki Kenko, DPJ lower house MP from Hokkaido
