friday joke...

Q: How many Bush Administration officials does it take to change a light bulb?

A: None. There is nothing wrong with the light bulb; its condition is improving every day. Any reports of its lack of incandescence are just spin from the liberal media. Illuminating rooms is hard work. That light bulb has served honorably, and anything you say undermines the lighting effort. Why do you hate freedom?

Aren`t there any republicans in Harvard?

There are. The Republican Club on campus is actually pretty large, around 200 or more dues paid members and over 1,000 on their email list, and one of the more active clubs as well.

they do exist, in various forms, although they are a minority. An active one, though, as psuedo repub Jamal points out...

I think it would really kill the Democrats to stop mocking Bush for a second. Does anyone honestly believe that a Democratic administration in the exact same situation would be framing their agenda in any different terms? It's politics, and of course his press conferences will feel suspect because they are totally partisan events - he controls them. Their misleading, but expected, media offerings are not the problem. The actual agenda is. Can someone tell me the Democratic plan in Iraq? Not really, but I can tell you that Harry Reid loves to bitch. That said, vote Democratic.

Two things:

- First, the point of this joke was not about a plan, it was about honesty. The first, and best thing that could be done is admit to some of the struggles and mistakes and talk about how, now rectified, we can move forward. Denying that mistakes have been made, being unwilling to openly discuss them in order to improve policy is bad policy, even though it's good politics.

- Second, the point of this joke was that it's a joke. I thought it was kind of funny too...

Hmm I rephrase my question: are there any Republicans in Harvard with a sense of humour? :)
