Humble Jumble

Will someone please tell public speakers especially politicians to stop being “humble”.  I don’t believe it and I expect neither do the other listeners/viewers.  The new MP for North Sydney was “humble”, “humbled”, and many other variations of this ridiculous word.  If they are humble I really don’t think they should go for office as they would not be suited to the attack, forcefulness, fighting spirit, go-for-broke, putting forward a case for their voters, spirit needed in public life.  “Humble” they are not, and “humbled” I doubt.
