A Light Bulb to Answer the Radio Silence

Sorry, folks, I've collected material (some good stuff) to blog about, but I'm currently racing to finish writing a script for a deadline. In the meantime, I leave you with a joke...

I love light bulb jokes, and this particular one first appeared among former Clinton aides back when Kerry was running for President. The scariest thing is, it's hardly changed at all since then, and I would hope it wouldn't still be so timely:

How many members of the Bush administration does it take to change a light bulb?


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 No. 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.
