Election Day -2

So, a corny joke.

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 ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.”

She rolled her eyes and said, “You must be an Obama Democrat.”

“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 not been much help to me.”

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

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

“Well,” said the man,

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

  1. bing….loved this! it is too accurate on too many levels. also happy to catch something fresh off the bingpress.

    I love how the new republican house is bragging about ‘taking america back’ into the 20th century. Does arrogance and ignorance really cross each other out? I have to laugh now because if i didn’t i would have to jump off a bridge.

    Also, did you see john boner cry on national tv! imagine what republicans would have said if nanci pelosi would’ve done that? The guy looked like a whimpering drunk guy at a bar clamoring up about how much he loves everything. What an orange freak.

    Though, at least tea party freaks angle, miller, fiorina, mcmahon, o’donnell, are not getting ready to sit in senate seats. Too sad about Feingold and ‘ayn’ rand paul though.

    Was glad to see a lot of blue doggers hit the dirt, though. Still, having to laugh it all off because the new wave republican scabs have made it clear that their agenda is to make sure obama doesn’t do anything. What a plan! Whatever, again, laughing….
