I am blatantly stealing this from FB where the original author was not identified. Plagiarism police be advised...

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 a Republican.

"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 an Obama-Democrat."

"I am," replied the balloonist. "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 somehow, now it's my fault."

How true.

I wonder who the balloonist was.

I liked it the first time I heard it. It long predates Obama, however, and maybe wasn't even a Dem/GOP joke originally.

I liked it the first time I heard it also. The great part is that it fits this situation perfectly.

The real joke is the defeat the left suffered last night.
