- One to deny that a light bulb needs to be changed;
- One to attack the patriotism of anyone who says the light bulb needs to be changed;
- One to blame Clinton for burning out the light bulb;
- One to arrange the invasion of a country rumored to have a secret stockpile of light bulbs;
- One to give a billion dollar no-bid contract to Halliburton for the new light bulb;
- One to arrange a photograph of Bush, dressed as a janitor, standing on a step ladder under the banner: Light Bulb Change Accomplished;
- One administration insider to resign and write a book documenting in detail how Bush was literally in the dark;
- One to viciously smear #7;
- One surrogate to campaign on TV and at rallies on how George Bush has had a strong light-bulb-changing policy all along;
- And finally one to confuse Americans about the difference between screwing a light bulb and screwing the country.
How many Bush administration officials does it take to change a light bulb?
None. There’s nothing wrong with that light bulb. There is no need to change anything. We made the right decision and nothing has happened to change our minds. People who criticize this light bulb now, just because it doesn’t work anymore, supported us when we first screwed it in, and when these flip-floppers insist on saying that it is burned out, they are merely giving aid and encouragement to the Forces of Darkness.
