Now if we could only get rid of Rachael Ray this easily

I have now seen the weirdest news story of the year: Thai prime minister Samak Sundaravej
just lost his job. The reason? He appeared on a Thai cooking show for pay.

Yes, a cooking show.

Granted, there are other things afoot. This was just the catalyst. But still: a cooking show? There are better reasons for demanding the ouster of a prime minister seen by many detractors as a puppet for unpopular former prime minister Thaksin Shinowatra. I guess Bush shouldn't go near the Food Network any time soon.
