Constitutionality

Hat tip to Shisaku who provided the translation below.

The Tokyo High Court and Saporro High Court's decisions to declare the December 16, 2012 election unconstitutional but not invalid is a head scratcher, to be sure. American complacency about its democratic partner's situation is peculiar. 

As a senryu by Tanaka Jiro of Koshigaya City put it:
違憲でも
選挙有効?
アホかいな

Iken demo
senkyo yuko?
aho kai na


Even though it's unconstitutional
The election's valid?
Do you think I'm a moron?/Are you morons?
