Our Politicians Are Boring

…compared to some other folks around the world

One of Australia’s most senior conservative politicians broke down today as he tearfully admitted sniffing the chair of a female colleague shortly after she vacated it.
Troy Buswell, the leader of the opposition Liberal Party in Western Australia, was under intense pressure to resign over the incident, which happened in 2005.
He dismissed allegations on 13 different occasions that he had sniffed the seat, before finally admitting yesterday that it had in fact taken place.
“All I can confirm is that the events described in the paper [The West Australian] by the former female staffer are accurate,” he said.
…The emergence of the chair-sniffing incident had placed a strain on his marriage, he conceded.

I would say he’s got some deep-seated issues. Sofa he hasn’t had to resign…
And what does it tell you about the state of the party’s leadership when

Other members of the Liberal party said privately they were disgusted by the whole episode, but would not challenge Mr Buswell as leader of the Liberals because there was no better candidate.

    This reminds me of the Family Guy re-run I watched last night, in which Brian the Dog tackled a prized greyhound on the track and “violated” her in the middle of the race.
    Obviously this senior conservative Australian party member appreciates a fine piece of tail.
    (omg, did I just say that?)

    Mr. Buswell is not the “leader of the opposition Liberal Party in Western Australia”, he’s the chairman.

    The guy probably farts in the bathtub and bites the bubbles.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that, Jim…right?
