Today's winner is Japan's Foreign Minister, Taro Aso. He gets the award for the following.
TOKYO (Reuters) - Blond, blue-eyed Westerners probably can't be as successful at Middle East diplomacy as Japanese with their "yellow faces," Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Aso was quoted by media as saying in a weekend speech.Dumb comments from a dumb politician. That is all it takes to make Japan's Foreign Minister, Taro Aso, today's Knucklehead of the Day.
"Japan is doing what Americans can't do," the Nikkei business daily quoted the gaffe-prone Aso as saying in a speech on Sunday.
"Japanese are trusted. If (you have) blue eyes and blond hair, it's probably no good," he said.
"Luckily, we Japanese have yellow faces."
