Over at The Marmot's Hole
, The Korean has put together a nice overview of Tuesday's vote for the National Assembly seats, a national poll in which the ruling party did surprisingly well, thanks to Park Geunhye.
The Korean credits Ms Park successfully incorporating
rice-and-kimchi issues that are normally the purview of the parties on the left. And despite President Lee Myungbak's abysmal ratings (you're not a lame-duck ROK president unless you're popularity is less than one in three), it turns out not to have been much a referendum on the Marilyn Manson impersonator.
One wonders how this bodes for the presidential election coming in December. Does this make a Park Geunhye candidacy more likely, and will her success in April be enough to carry her (back) to the Blue House, occupied for nearly two decades by her father
