Koizumi is watching you!

Found this fun story via Carson Fire.

“Don’t send email on your cell phones or read comic books in Parliament while in session,” Mr Koizumi was quoted by the national Asahi newspaper as saying in a lunch on Thursday with 30 first-term lawmakers from his Liberal Democratic Party.

“You can be seen very clearly from the prime minister’s seat,” Asahi quoted Mr Koizumi, 62, as telling the lower house members in his office. “You should really stop that – it’s disgraceful.”

It would be awesome if freshman U.S. senators were playing video games and reading comic books in session.

Well, it wouldn’t be awesome, but it would be funny.
