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

The answer is SEVEN:

(1) One to deny that a light bulb needs to be replaced.

(2) One to attack and question the patriotism of anyone who asks
questions about the light bulb.

(3) One to blame the previous administration for the need of a new
light bulb.

(4) One to arrange the invasion of a country rumored to have a secret
stockpile of light bulbs.

(5) One to get together with Vice President Cheney and award a one
million dollar no-bid contract to Halliburton Industries for supplying
a light bulb.

(6) One to arrange a photo-op session showing the President changing
the light bulb while dressed in a flight suit and wrapped in an American

(7) And finally, one to explain the difference between screwing a light
bulb and screwing the country.

One million black votes didn't count in the 2000 presidential election
It's not too hard to get your vote lost -- if some politicians want it to be lost

San Francisco Chronicle

Sunday, June 20, 2004

by Greg Palast

In the 2000 presidential election, 1.9 million Americans cast ballots that no one counted. "Spoiled votes" is the technical term. The pile of ballots left to rot has a distinctly dark hue: About 1 million of them -- half of the rejected ballots -- were cast by African Americans although black voters make up only 12 percent of the electorate.

This year, it could get worse....

Colin Powell Sings Village People Song  AP -

JAKARTA, Indonesia - U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell donned a hard hat and tucked a hammer in his belt Friday to perform a version of the Village People's hit "YMCA" at the conclusion of Asia's largest security meeting — which tradition says ends with a night of skit and song...

This administration sure knows how to have a good time. Powell singing YMCA. Hmmm, doesn't that stand for Young Men's Christian Association?

Marty wakes up at home with a huge hangover. He forces himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins and a glass of water on the side table. He sits down and sees his clothing in front of him, all clean and pressed. Marty looks around the room and sees that it is in perfect order, spotless, clean. So is the rest of the house.

He takes the aspirins and notices a note on the table, "Honey, breakfast is on the stove, I left early to go shopping. Love you."

So he goes to the kitchen and sure enough there is a hot breakfast and the morning newspaper. His son is also at the table, eating. Marty asks, "Son, what happened last night?"

His son says, "Well, you came home after 3 A.M., drunk and delirious. Broke some furniture, puked in the hallway and gave yourself a black eye when you stumbled into the door."

Confused, Marty asks, "So, why is everything in order and so clean, and breakfast is on the table waiting for me?"

His son replies, "Oh that! Mom dragged you to the bedroom, and when she tried to take your pants off, you said, "Lady, leave me alone, I'm married!"

One self-induced hangover - $100
Broken furniture - $200
Breakfast - $10
Saying the right thing - priceless

 Republican Shenanigans

Counting Ballots

George W. Bush, John Ashcroft and Katherine Harris go fishing on the lake by George W.'s ranch. While speeding across the lake, they hit a tree trunk that cracks a hole in the bottom of the boat. The boat starts to sink, so they look for life preservers and find only one.

George W. Bush says: "I'm the President selected by the Supreme Court. The people need me to protect the nation from the new world order and the growth of the new economy and computers and such."

John Ashcroft says: "I'm the Attorney General, and as the nation's chief law enforcement officer I must live so that there will be no fear or panic in the streets if you two should die. And besides, I have to outlaw abortion, affirmative action, campaign finance reform, environmental protection and same sex marriages to save the moral fiber of this country."

Finally, Katherine Harris says: "I'm the Florida Secretary of State and the state Republican Chairwoman, and I must survive so that I can deliver the votes needed by all the Republican officials throughout the state, and disenfranchise those minorities who vote for Democrats, so that Republicans may continue to be elected even though more people vote for Democrats."

And the three of them all agree that each has very good and moral arguments for the life preserver, so that they decide the only fair way to decide is by a vote. They cut up three squares of paper and vote by secret ballot. Then they open the ballots to tally them.

The first ballot says "George W. Bush -- one vote," the second ballot says "John Ashcroft -- one vote", and the third ballot says "Katherine Harris -- 37 votes."
