After failing miserably as Prime Minister and embarrassingly losing that post which was handed to him by the Thai military, Abhisit Vejjajiva will step down as leader of the Democrat party after a leadership contest in October. This leaves the amart/military nexus scrambling to replace Abhisit in their puppet political party.
However, there have been rumors that the next leader of the Democrat Party should be The Grim Reaper.
Both the amart and the military see the political viability of the “Angel of Death.” Clearly he is popular with the Democrat Party base. He’s got all the qualifications they’re looking for: he’s almost as old as Prem Tinsulanonda, he doesn’t have dark skin like the prai, he’s packing a weapon, he’s got an incredible war record, and, believe me, no one wants to get rid of government sponsored health care for the poor more than this guy.
He’s also well recognized, appearing in many of Sakda Sae-aew’s Thai Rath Political Cartoons.
Plus, he was a close second to the Thai military in sniper victims last year and is close friends with Suthep Thaugsuban. Evidently they use palm oil to power the flames in hell.
