The “sanook” in Thai political rallies and when they can get really dirty.

Dear readers,

After “Aunt Flow is visiting for another coup?” campaign by PADs led by “Kotub” (Kotex (common name for napkins ) + Sonthi’s nickname “Tub”), Thaksin’s phone interview with Reuter, stating his intention of whereabout (the world is his oyster, the new self-proclained global citizenship, being sort of Nelson Mandela) and he did not really stated what he would do next would be interestingly sanook.

Ewwwww. I am wondering how can they dislike other people so much until they can direct energy to do this kind of thing. The first persons to have to deal with those things hand-on are the ones who prepared them.

Don’t be drag down the spiral. Think *new* and *clean* politics. Like clean air, clean canals and clean energies, it is what we need to think about. Clean politics can be sanook, too.
