    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 sailor consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air
    balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2346 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 yelled down, "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 been no help to me."

    The man smiled and responded, "Then you must be a Democrat."

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

    "Well," said the man, "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."
