Balloon Politics

A woman in a hot-air balloon realizes she is lost, descends a bit. and shouts to a man below, "Excuse me. I promised a friend I would meet him, but I don't know where I am."

"You're at 31 degrees, 14.57 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude," he replies.

Hot Air Balloon

"You must be a Democrat."

"I am. How did you know?" he replies.

"Because everything you told me is technically correct, but the information is useless, and I’m still lost.  Frankly, you’ve been no help."

"You must be a Republican."

"Yes.  How did you know?"

"You’ve risen to where you are due to a lot of hot air, you made a promise you couldn’t 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."
