The First Habatsu Home Page?

The Seiwa Seisaku Kenkyuukai--Seiwaken for short--opened its home page on Tuesday. Seiwaken is the largest faction in the LDP and has produced the last four Prime Ministers, including the incumbent.

As far as I’m aware, this is the first habatsu home page. Now if only we could get all the other factions and caucus groups to start theirs…

Maybe it's just me, but it looks like a website for air fresheners and deoderizers IYKWIAS.

Why do you think they put up this site and why now? How many of them even know how to email or use the Internet?


PS "deodorizer" and we think it looks more like some sort of green detergent promotion

Je ne sais pas pourqoi, ma cherie. There’s so little content there, you wonder why they ever bothered. It’s like one of those science fiction movies where you arrive on a planet to find that all the people have disappeared, leaving the place clean and tidy, vacuous and sterile… hmm, maybe it’s a new genre in conceptual art—the homepage as self-referential irony. What’s really odd is that most LDP Diet members have their own more or less well-maintained websites, and some of them actually have blogs.

Seriously, it must be a kitchen detergent. For a laundry detergent, they would use the color blue.
