A woman in a hot air balloon ...


A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below.

She shouted to him, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, “You’re in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 500 feet above sea level. You... are at 34 degrees, 29.03 minutes North latitude and 114 degrees, 19.34 minutes West longitude…"

She rolled her eyes and said, “You must be a libertarian...”

“I am,” replied the man. “How did you know?”

“Well,” answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is
technically correct. But I have no idea what to do with your
information, and I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve been of no help to me at all and now, thanks to your lack of help, I’ll be even more late.”

The man smiled and responded, “You must be a Democrat.”

“I am,” replied the balloonist excitedly. “How did you know?”

“Well,” said the man, “you don’t know where you are or where you are going. You’ve risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You’re in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but now somehow, it’s my fault.”

Out of Time
Here's Obama on an escalator, doing none of the work, but making it look like he's doing all the work so he can take credit for it.
Just look at him in the end, trotting away so proud of what he's done!

yeah ... I've read it somewhere before ... but it's still funny. I'm sure there's one where there's a republican in the balloon and a democrat in the boat.

It would not be funny if there were no truth to it.
