This Is The First Lady We Want

Yeah, yeah; Michelle Obama may be intelligent, capable and beautiful, but has she ever admitted to being abducted by aliens? Exactly. That's why Japanese First Lady Miyuki Hatoyama is our new favorite woman behind the man in charge.

Hatoyama, wife of the soon-to-be-prime minister Yukio Hatoyama, made her claim in a book published last year called, fittingly, Very Strange Things I've Encountered:

While my body was asleep, I think my soul rode on a triangular-shaped UFO and went to Venus... It was a very beautiful place and it was really green.

And can we expect Miyuki's experience to influence Yukio's support (or lack thereor) for a Japanese space program? Potentially, because as she continued after explaining that her former husband told her that her experience was just a dream, her current husband is much more understanding:

My current husband has a different way of thinking. He would surely say 'Oh, that's great'.

That's it. The bar's been raised way past Barack reading Conan comics. Michelle, we're now waiting to hear about your alien kidnap experiences.
