Thought for the day

Q. How many members of the administration does it take to change a light bulb?
A. We're not going to tell you. Executive privilege.

Ya, that was pretty good. Bush Inc seems to be claiming Executive Privilege quite often now that the US Congress isnt their lapdog. The Bush Admin and the GOP in general are quite open about their desire for dictatorship; they worship executive power and despise democratic sentiment of a legislature of elected representatives.They don't believe in the "will of the people". Bush means it with pride when he let us know he is the "Decider". His notion of Executive Privilege is infinite, the Congress and the US people are not to check the dictators actions. They are open about this and we should all take notice.

How strange it is that these same people claim to be "spreading democracy" throughout the world when they deny it here.

I would like to assure you that the lightbulbs are properly changed. Admittedly there have been problems in the past, but we are undertaking a careful internal review and we hope to get to the bottom of it soon. In the meantime we cannot discuss any questions involving lightbulbs because it is the subject of an ongoing investigation. I'd like to thank you and the committee for giving me the opportunity to speak to you on behalf of the administration today.
