From Arun, February, 2012
The cartoon reads:
Pol Gen Pongsapat Pongcharoen
The Sign: Bangkok
The logo is the logo of the Bangkok Metropolitan authority
[A man swimming in the lead is Pol. Gen. Pongsapat Pongcharoen from Pheu Thai Party. He has the weight of fugitive former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.
The man swimming after is Mr. Sukhumbhand Paribatra from the Democrat Party. He has the weight of former Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva.
This implies that both candidates are hampered by the national party politics that permeate their races.]
