They were doing well, inciting furor in the populace over the Japanese detention of a fishing boat captain/hero/Chinese intelligence operative that invaded Diaoyu islands and rammed a Japanese patrol vessel. This was great in rallying up anti Japanese sentiments and making people forgetting about what a crappy job the government is doing about all the disaster recovery efforts and rebuild efforts and the state of the housing bubble and foreign pressures to rise the yuan. I would love to see how they are going to deal with this one. There are already CCP members vandalizing his wiki page. It's kinda funny that CCP bans wiki/youtube from its internet, but has some of its brainwashed kissers trying to sing praises of China on wiki and youtube pages, and has them arguing for China for anyone dare to question what CCP does.
