Nice title. Says a lot. I’m waiting for stickers on the the backs of cars.
Along the same lines, that photo of Thaksin and Yinglak held high is going to get a lot attention. The more traditional image was conspicuous in its absence.
having read #thaistory helps understand why traditional images are not so popular anymore
Thought I saw Abhisit in the crowd – with a red rose.
Boy would I love to see Abhisit’s reaction to this clip. Ever since I saw that dignified poster put up I knew she’d be dangerous.
That is so brilliant.
Moral: If you train your populace to give mindless, unquestioning,unjustified adoration, they can switch that mindless, unquestioning,unjustified adoration to someone else at the drop of a hat.
It reminds me why enlightenment is actually a useful adjunct to governance, as well as an intellectual triumph.
I’m guessing that the rally for Yingluck is taking place at a school or vocational college, but which province is it in? Am I wrong in guessing that it is somewhere in the Northeast? I am pretty sure it’s not near Bangkok, because the weather looks too nice!
It doesn’t change the fact that the lady is merely a puppet who doesn’t have her own political standing point. She can’t go on a single public speech without a script. She refused to participate in PM candidate debate to show her visions and/or take questions. When reporters ask her questions, we hardly get anything out of her answers. No offense but it seems to me that all she’s good at is smiling and posting for photos. 🙂
Kate #7. So we have a puppet who is only good at smiling and posing (I presume) for photos, contesting an election against a stooge who is only good at talking. Every Thai I have ever met knows who controls the puppet and the stooge. I look forward to the results of the election to see who is most loved in Thailand, the puppet master or the stooge wrangler.

Wow, I thought you were mentioning Abhisit for a second there.
Abhisit is my puppet becuz I voted for him. 🙂 He’s also a puppet of 235 members of parliament who voted for him on Dec 15, 2008. I was watching the voting process live and I didn’t see any soldiers pointing guns at those 235 voters and forced them to vote. Did soldiers hold their kids hostage outside to make them vote for Abhisit ? I don’t know, you show me an evidence. As long as you don’t have one, it’s your own speculation. As for Yingluck, the lady has been traveling around the country asking voters “do you miss my brother ?” (clap) “do you want him back home ?” (clap) “if you miss him, vote for me” (clap) Now that’s an evidence to me and that’s probably the only PT policy that she can talk about without script. 🙂
Oh dear, I didn’t realize Ahbisit supporters voted for Ahbisit because he is their puppet. No wonder their current campaign platform is in a mess – one has to respect their leader, not treat him like a cutey little puppet to be hidden away at the first sight of trouble.
Thanks Kate, for explaining this little point. Now I understand why all a number of my ‘tai-tai’ (rich housewives) friends and their daughters just went nuts and screams when ‘good looking’ Ahbisit comes near, and understand how Ahbisit ended up in the Militiary barracks. Puppet! Who could have thought!
But please, for the sake of Thailand’s future. Vote for a Prime Minister, huh!
Kate: Abhisit already told us this stuff on how he became PM.
