George W. Bush and a secret service agent are taking a stroll when they come upon a little girl carrying a basket with a blanket over it. Curious, Bush asks the girl, ”What’s in the basket?”
She replies, ”New baby kittens,” and she opens the basket to show him.
”How nice,” says Bush. ”What kind are they?”
The little girl says, ”Republicans.”
Bush smiles, pats the little girl on the head and continues on.
Three weeks later, Bush is taking another stroll, this time with Karl Rove. They see the little girl again with the same basket. Bush says, ”Watch this, Karl; it’s really cute.” They approach the little girl.
Bush greets the little girl and asks how the kittens are doing, and she says, ”Fine.” Then, smirking, he nudges Rove with his elbow and asks the little girl, ”And can you tell us what kind of kittens they are?” She replies, ”Democrats”
Abashed, Bush says, ”But three weeks ago you said they were Republicans!”
”I know,” she says. ”But now their eyes are open.”

One day, a cat dies of natural causes and goes to heaven, where he meets the Lord Himself.
The Lord says to the cat, ”You lived a good life, and if there is any way I can make your stay in heaven more comfortable, please let me know.”
The cat thinks for a moment and says, ”Lord, all my life I have lived with a poor family and had to sleep on a hard wooden floor.”
The Lord stops the cat and says, ”Say no more,” and a wonderful, fluffy pillow appears.
A few days later, six mice are killed in a tragic farming accident, and all of them go to heaven.
Again, the Lord is there to greet them with the same offer.
The mice answer, ”All our lives we have been chased.
We have had to run from cats, dogs, and even women with brooms.
Running, running, running; we’re tired of running.
Do you think we could have roller skates so that we don’t have to run anymore?”
The Lord says, ”Say no more” and fits each mouse with beautiful new roller skates.
Week later, the Lord stops by to see the cat and finds him snoozing on the pillow.
The Lord gently wakes the cat and asks him, ”How are things since you got here?”
The cat stretches and yawns, then replies, ”It is wonderful here.
Better than I could have ever expected. And those ’Meals On Wheels’ you’ve been sending by are the best!”
