Dim Bulb

Received from a Libertarian friend of mine whom I think of as being on the right side of the political spectrum.

How many members of the Bush Administration are needed to change a light bulb?

Answer: TEN...

1. One to deny that a light bulb needs to be changed,
2. One to attack the patriotism of anyone who says the light bulb
needs to be changed,
3. One to blame Clinton for burning out the light bulb,
4. One to tell the nations of the world that they are either for
changing the light bulb or for eternal darkness,
5. One to give a billion dollar no-bid contract to Halliburton for
the new light bulb,
6. One to arrange a photograph of Bush, dressed as a janitor,
standing on a step ladder under the banner "Bulb Accomplished",
7. One administration insider to resign and in detail reveal how
Bush was literally "in the dark" the whole time,
8. One to viciously smear #7,
9. One surrogate to campaign on TV and at rallies on how George
Bush has had a strong light bulb-changing policy all along,
10. And finally, one to confuse Americans about the difference
between screwing a light bulb and screwing the country.

And after all is said and done, no one will notice that they never
actually managed to change the light bulb.
