It is just not working out to get more information posted for folks on this, so here's the summary:
This election was all about emotion, not reason, and the results reflect that.
DPJ (the so-called "Democrats") wins the day. they may well have over 300 seats out of the Lower House's 480.
This is likely 'what we are getting' come tomorrow: The world as seen by a Hatoyama Premiership.
"We are so screwed" does not even begin to cover what is about to be.
h/t to M. Goldfarb over at The Weekly Standard for pointing out Y. Hatoyama's Op-Ed piece.
