A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He lowered altitude and spotted a woman jogging on a path below. He shouted to her, "Excuse ma'am, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."
The woman consulted her portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude."
He rolled his eyes and said, "You must be a Democrat."
"I am," replied the woman. "How did you know?"
"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me may be technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."
The woman smiled and responded, "You must be a Republican."
"I am," replied the balloonist, "How did you know?"
"Well," said the woman, "you don't know where you are or where you're going. You've risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise that 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 somehow, now it's MY fault."
