The endangered incandescent bulb.

Washington - I recently received an email from the Tea Party pointing out a life-threatening issue that's facing America. Recently elected Tea Party members have put the incandescent light bulb on the endangered species list, fearing it will soon be extinct. Senator Jim DeMint was the first to speak.

"There are millions of incandescent light bulbs being discarded in the name of those new-fangled so-called 'environmentally-friendly' light bulbs. If the trend continues, billions of incandescent light bulbs will lose their lives."

Ron Johnson chimed in.

"Commie Socialist 'Energy saving' florescent bulbs are killing good, hard working, American incandescent bulbs. Incandescent light bulbs use more energy. They are a very important part of our ecosystem. If they become extinct, energy companies across America will collapse. Our very way of life may depend on saving this small creature."

Rand Paul added the following.

"I will not shake the hand of the man who opposes saving these incandescent bulbs. An attack on these bulbs is an attack on my religion. This measure will be about the future of America: Who has the best vision?"

The Tea Party is calling for everyone to join in the fight to save the incandescent bulb. Having representatives like these should make us proud to be Americans. They recognize the important issues and get right to work on them. Americans have finally shown some common sense by voting in such rational representatives who keep their eyes on the issues that affect us all.
