I really wonder..............

How many politicians it takes to change a light bulb?

Personally, I'd say none. They would study the bulb until the building and fixture to which it was attached rotted and fell apart. Then they would bulldoze it, build a new building with new fixtures and pay several government employees to put in new bulbs at the rate of about one per hour to allow for plenty of breaks.

Bragging rights to the person who can comes up with a better answer.

Actually, it takes 51 senators, i.e., a majority. They must pass a bill that contains an earmark to direct funds to a lightbulb-changing corporation, one that has contributed to the sponsor's reelection campaign. The funds, however, are barely sufficient to pay off the hookers, so the project becomes known as "The Lightbulb to Nowhere."

None. They would keep the lightbulb exactly the same, unless the lightbulb issue became controversal and there were enough lightbulb lobbiests to make it worth their while.

How many politicians would it take?

Depends on what the polls tell them.

((These answers crack me up!!)

The politicians would all promise to change the lightbulb and tell you if you voted for them, they would give you a much better lightbulb.
But they would neglect to tell you that the electricity has been cut off because the bill wasn't paid so the lightbulb won't work.

Which more or less summarizes the crap McBama is telling us about how they will cut taxes even as the deficit hits $500 billion a year.
