    Found over on sebatical‘s LiveJournal;

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

    A: None. There is nothing wrong with the light bulb. Its conditions are improving every day. Any reports of its lack of incandescence are a delusional spin from the liberal media. That light bulb has served honorably, and anything you say undermines the lighting effect. Why do you hate freedom?

    This little joke was also posted as a comment to Eric Alterman‘s weblog who has a nice little piece about how the CIA would NEVER get in the way of bloggers…

    Top CIA Guy: What about them new-fangled journalists? What do you call them, buggers?

    Number Two Guy: Bloggers, sir, bloggers. And frankly, I?m amazed at your audacity at even imagining that we would ever compromise the beauty, the integrity, and the power of this medium that is certain to sink the mainstream media dinosaurs and replace them with the likes of Glenn Reynolds and those guys at Powerline. I resign, effectively immediately, and not only that, I?m going to tell Jeff Jarvis on you. Don?t be surprised if you find yourself written about on Buzzmachine.

    I’ve decided I still hate the word “blog” – it sounds like something you do alone in a dark room and don’t chat about with friends…

    There’s also a shocking revelation by Eric Rice that he too doesn’t believe that blogging will cause the downfall of media giants. Well, the revelation is that he agrees with Jack that blogs will no more destroy Fox News than personal video tape recorders destroyed network news or the movie industry.

    Blogs are interesting enough and mine cause me to write more frequently, whether people read it or not. Changing the world? No.

      The war between blogging and journalism has just begun.
