The Election Generates Jobs and Income

From ThaiRath, May 29, 2011
The cartoon headline reads: The Election Generates Jobs and Income
Top left: Generating income for the election canvasser [This refers to politicians who deliver money to local election canvasses. These people then who plan with village headmen and other grassroots leaders to sell the buy the votes on constituents.]
Top middle: Generating income for the team to get rid of election canvassers [In some hotly contested areas, hitmen end up targeting these canvassers.]
Top right: Generating income for the election sign producing business [referring to the epidemic of defaced election posters]
Bottom left: Generating income for the painting color merchants [referring to the political groups that designate themselves with different colors]
Bottom middle: Generating income for the gambling boss [from those who vote] on election results
Bottom right: The deity also gains from the offerings from wish makers [meaning politicians who make offerings to religious shrines to ensure their victory]
