What Else Does This Man Suck At

What Else Does This Man Suck At?

John Brogden was the leader of the Liberal Party in NSW until very recently. He wanted to be the Premier but his party has been in opposition for about 10 years now. John was seen to be a great hope at ousting the Labor Party from office.

He obviously sucks at telling jokes at functions as he called Bob Carr’s, the former Premier, wife a “mail order bride”. Bob Carr’s wife is from Malaysia and happens to be a successful businesswoman in her own right. The joke didn’t go down too well.

At the same function he propositioned a female journalist and pinched another on the bottom, none of whom was his wife. He sucked at that too.

Following this not-so-successful function he resigned, with the blessing of our Liberal Prime Minister John Howard. The fact that John Howard didn’t like him wouldn’t have helped.

The latest news is that he sucks at suicide. Overnight he apparently tried to kill himself and was taken to hospital and may even be released today. Couldn’t have been even close to successful. The police called them minor injuries.

Is there anything that this man is good at? Forgive my cynicism but I think that he tried to kill himself in his electoral office so that his wife would receive a larger payout as he would have died on the job.

I think this whole posting 'sucks'! I do however, think that anyone who wishes to take on public office, needs to bear in mind the enormous pressures they and their famillies will be under, not least of which is to be above reproach in their public and private lives. They will be under constant scrutiny from the Press and public alike.

What a loser...Can't even roach himself off properly. Shame. Now he must be REALLY suicidal.

NYM - didn't take him long to realise that there was nothing to live for. I wonder if he had John Howard's permission to attempt suicide.

he's a dick for trying it in the first place, but how bad were the papers for beating a drum that already had holes in it.

how bad does it suck to know that you can't even succeed at killing yourself??

Now they should just kill him with a firing squad.

I am apalled! Do none of you have any compassion? While I do not condone killing human beings in any way, suicide among them, it seems to me that Mr Brondden has a consience. What planet are you from?

Do we really need people why can't even properly kill themselves further muddying up the gene pool? Eliminate him I say!

It is disappointing that he didn't make the Darwin Awards http://www.darwinawards.com/.

I have no sympathy for people who attempt or who are successful. It is the most selfish act imaginable. I've lost 2 friends in 2 years due to suicides. I have no empathy for those who fail to think of their family and friends and how it will affect them.
