Chappatte, «International Herald Tribune»

Yukio Hatoyama, o primeiro-ministro eleito do Japão é um homem que atrai, internacionalmente, a curiosidade de todos e vários adjectivos. Motivo de tanta atenção, além de ter esmagado o seu opositor nas recentes eleições, não será alheio a sua futura e incerta relação com o eterno aliado — durante algum tempo colonizador — americano.Mas igualmente interessante (ou mais) é a mulher do Sr. Hatoyama, Miyuki Hatoyama. A senhora é uma entusiasta da alimentação macrobiótica, autora de livros de culinária, foi actriz e até já foi raptada por aliens e numa vida anterior conheceu Tom Cruise:

[…] Miyuki Hatoyama, wife of Japan’s Prime Minister-elect, Yukio Hatoyama, is a lifestyle guru, a macrobiotics enthusiast, an author of cookery books, a retired actress, a divorcee, and a fearless clothes horse for garments of her own creation, including a skirt made from Hawaiian coffee sacks. But there is more, much more. She has travelled to the planet Venus. And she was once abducted by aliens.

The 62-year-old also knew Tom Cruise in a former incarnation – when he was Japanese – and is now looking forward to making a Hollywood movie with him. “I believe he’d get it if I said to him, ‘Long time no see’, when we meet,” she said in a recent interview. But it is her claim in a book entitled “Very Strange Things I’ve Encountered” that she was abducted by aliens while she slept one night 20 years ago, that has suddenly drawn attention following last Sunday’s poll.

“While my body was asleep, I think my soul rode on a triangular-shaped UFO and went to Venus,” she explains in the tome she published last year. “It was a very beautiful place, and it was very green.”

When the new Japanese first lady related her adventures to her then husband, he told her flatteningly that it was probably just a dream. But she is confident that Yukio, the man now entrusted with the task of hauling Japan out of its deepest recession, would have reacted very differently. “My current husband has a different way of thinking. He would surely say, ‘Oh, that’s great’,” she wrote. Mrs Hatoyama’s self-confidence in projecting her personality, and shattering the traditional expectations of a political wife, probably derives from her early years as a dancer in Japan’s legendary all-female Takarazuka theatrical troupe.

A senhora fará sucesso em jantares oficiais, pelo menos isso.
