Ichiro Ozawa may be the next Prime Minister of Japan. He said recently that he does not think Americans are very smart, and that he does not like British people. Two questions come to mind. How smart is Ozawa? Probably not very. And what would happen if a leading American politician, possible Presidential hopeful, said that he thought Japanese people were not very smart, and that he did not like, I don’t know, Chinese or Italians. The mind boggles.
