The Bush lightbulb joke

How many members of the Bush Administration are needed to change a lightbulb?
  1. One to deny that a lightbulb needs to be changed.
  2. One to attack the patriotism of anyone who says the lightbulb needs to be changed.
  3. One to blame Clinton for burning out the lightbulb.
  4. One to tell the nations of the world that they are either for changing the lightbulb or for darkness.
  5. One to give a billion-dollar no-bid contract to Halliburton for the new lightbulb.
  6. One to set up a photograph of Bush dressed as a janitor, standing on a step ladder under the banner: "Lightbulb Change Accomplished!"
  7. One administration insider to resign and write a book documenting in detail how Bush was literally in the dark.
  8. One to viciously smear #7.
  9. One surrogate to campaign on TV and at rallies on how George Bush has had a strong lightbulb-changing policy all along.
  10. And finally, one to confuse Americans about the difference between screwing a lightbulb and screwing the country.

Thanks to Celia for this!
