Walking ballsack David Leyonhjelm is officially out of all forms of Australian politics after failing spectacularly in his bid for a seat in the NSW Legislative Council, despite claiming he’d won two weeks ago.

The Liberal Democrats leader fell well short of securing the seat he swore black and blue he’d won after the AEC completed their final count for the NSW state upper house this morning.

The last four seats in the Legislative Council were up for grabs when final preferences were distributed this morning, with Labor, the Nationals, and One Nation all securing an additional seat in the house, while the Animal Justice party secured a breakthrough berth as well.

Leyonhjelm, known to you all as the petulant pants-shitting baby of the Federal Senate, spectacularly quit his seat in Canberra in order to run for – what he assumed – was a much safer bet in state politics.

Following the March 23rd state election, Leyonhjelm was so utterly convinced he’d won a seat in the Upper House that he penned a self-congratulatory missive on his personal blog entitled “Manifesto for a Crossbencher,” in which he asserted it was “evident” that he’d been elected, and where he bravely declared he would be willing to work with the Berejiklian Government in a hostile Legislative Council.

He then took to his own Facebook page on March 28th to declare that he had been definitively elected for an eight-year term, asserting that the move from Federal to State politics had been a “gamble” that had now “paid off.”

He also went so far as to update his Twitter bio to reflect the position that he absolutely did not get.

From a professional standpoint, it’s arguably unbecoming and possibly somewhat unethical to revel in the flames of a failed political bid, particularly one that was wrongly celebrated so brazenly and so thunderously prematurely. But on the other hand, David Leyonhjelm sucks ass.

So let me be excruciatingly clear when I say that it gives me immense, giddy pleasure to assert: Get a fucking job you goddamned loser.
