    A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered
    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 2346 feet above
    sea level. You are 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 make of your information and I'm
    lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

    The man smiled and responded, "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."
