Heh, heh, “Bangkok.”
BANGKOK - An underdog in Sunday’s election for governor of Bangkok punched and kicked a television journalist Thursday, saying he was provoked by tough questions during a live interview.
Chuvit Kamolvisit, dubbed Bangkok’s massage parlour king by the Thai press, later apologised for losing his temper and assaulting host Visarn Dilokwanich after the interview.
“I admit I did it. I couldn’t stand it when he humiliated me on air,” said Chuvit, a stocky former bodybuilder who owned a strip of girly bars before entering politics a few years ago.
“What I did was a petty crime and I am happy to pay the fine for elbowing him and kicking him,” Chuvit said at his campaign headquarters next to a park he built and gave to the public. (H/T - )
I have to admit, I applaud Chuvit for this. For one, it makes for an exciting election; something rare in this world. For another, it puts some of these arrogant, condescending television hosts in their place.
Come on, who wouldn’t want to see Sarah Palin punch Charlie Gibson in the groin, or Barack Obama slap Sean Hannity like a beyotch?
