Japan elects new government in landslide

I didn't know they were voting, but Japan had a major overturn in government in recent voting. I love this quote from the NYTimes article:

“This vote is about making a system where parties that fail get kicked out,” said Yoshiyuki Kobayashi, 40, one of the white-collar corporate workers known here as salarymen. “We need to teach politicians to be nervous.”
