Nurse as Deputy Finance Minister

From Na Ban Bangkae by Buncha/ Kamin, Manager, February 5, 2008
Left: Samak says: I can't stand how we have a nurse to be the Deputy Finance Minister.
Right: Why? How about a cooking teacher being the PM?
[This cartoon pokes fun at the nominee nature of the government with unsuitable figures holding positions only because they are standing in for banned TRT politicians.
In the left panel, Samak complains about Ranongrak Suwanchawee, who is a nurse, being appointed as Deputy Finance Minister. Suwanchawee was no doubt appointed because she is the wife of banned Thai Rak Thai executive Pairote Suwanchawee. Such appointments are a signal that politicians can resist being banned or restricted from politics and will flaunt this fact in the most blatant way possible.
In the right panel it is pointed out that Samak, who has his own cooking show, is now PM.
