The Rock 'n' Roll Prime Minister Koizumi Goes To Graceland

President George W.Bush and Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi in Graceland.

Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi and Orikinla Osinachi have one thing in common. We love Elvis Presley. And both us love to croon and rock-n-roll to "Love Me Tender" and other Elvis songs.

The slapstick news that President Bush took Prime Minister Koizumi to Memphis to fulfill his rock-n-roll fantasy of doing his best impressions of Elvis made my day. And I am sure that Koizumi knows that Bill Clinton would have been a better tour guide to Graceland than George Bush.

President Bush can't rock-n-roll.
Because, cowboys can prance.
But cowboys can't dance.

Rock on Koizumi.
Elvis would have been proud to see you rock-n-roll.

Now, now, of -course- cowboys can dance. They boot-scoot; they do-si-do; and, oh my gosh, have you somehow managed to miss Texas' most beautiful contribution to music, the twin fiddles? (Look up "twin fiddle" and you'll find some nice dance music, you will.)

Just making fun of Dubya.
Of course, cowboys can shuffle.

Allright Mona.

God bless.

I live near Memphis and I recall such a buzz on thelocal news about diplomats arriving at Graceland. I enjoyed watching Prime Minister Koizumi dancing to Elvis tunes. He was quite the character. I love his light heartedness from the usual stifness of Prime Ministers. Two thumbs up for this rock and rollin Prime Minister. :o)
