Article: Female Ninja

Prime Minister of Japan Junichiro Koizumi is fielding numerous women in the upcoming election in an attempt to "kill off" the rebels in his own party who have blocked his legislative reforms.

They are being dubbed "assassins" or "female ninja" by the Japanese media.

This is a moderately big deal for several reasons, and I was going to add some commentary about affirmative action and masogony in modern Japan, but I don't have the time right now.

Sadly, all the commentary I can muster right now is this:

Female + Ninja = Cool

Hat tip to Fark. I also feel like I should get some sort of award for posting about female ninja without anything from Kill Bill in it.
