Election-losing jokes

Watching the men's singles final reminds me of a truly dreadful joke that I can't get out of my head. Politicians often have a knack of coming out with particularly bad jokes. This one's a real election loser. Try it on your friends and stand well back:

Approach your friend with the air of someone about to impart some great piece of knowledge.
"Did you know all male tennis players are witches?" you ask.
(Pause, while your friend looks at you quizzically.)
"Yep," you say, with immense authority. " I mean, Goran - Even 'ee's a witch. " (Ivanisevic)

Bad. Really bad.

More election-losing jokes, please!

A life long supporter of the labour party was lying on his death bed when he suddenly decided to join the Tory party.

"But why?" asked his puzzled friend, "You're labour through and through… Why change now?"

The man learned forward and explained, "Well, I'd rather it was one of them that died and not one of us."

The trouble with these political jokes is that they usually end up getting elected.

A life long supporter ......

The way I heard it - still political - was that the Prime Minister of Wales told it about Ian Paisley in the presence of "Jimmy" (Gordon) Brown and the orange one (Hain).

I'll hold off on the ones concerning "Jimmy" just now so they can be electorally conclusive nearer the event!
