Better by comparison

From Manager, July 2, 2020
Dr. Somkid: Only when the news came out that Jarn Maam will be head of our economic team… did our popularity get very high… Thank you for coming to save us.
Caption: Must respect you.

[This refers to rumors that inexperienced political functionary would head up the economic team of the ruling Palang Pracharat Party. This was after recent intense political bickering that saw the leadership of many parties shaken up as various political cliques attempt to take control of the huge spending schemes of the government.
Government spokeswoman, Narumon Pinyosinwat (nickanemd Jarn Maam), tipped to lead the economic policy team, had to defend her qualifications after withering attacks on social media.
Such purely political appointments for important positions have been typical in politics where the focus is inward toward bolstering and maintaining coalitions and thus power.
In the cartoon, Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak, head of the government’s economic policy team, thanks Narumon for making them look better by comparison.]
