I got this in the inbox:

I asked my friend's little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. She 
said she wanted to be President some day. 

Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there, so I asked her, 'If 
you were President what would be the first thing you would do?' 

She replied, 'I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people.' 

'Wow...what a worthy goal.' I told her, 'You don't have to wait until you're 
President to do that. You can come over to my house and mow, pull weeds, and 
sweep my yard, and I'll pay you $50. 
-Then I'll take you over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, 
and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house.' 

She thought that over for a few seconds while her Mom glared at me, then she 
looked me straight in the eye and asked, 'Why doesn't the homeless guy come over 
and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?' 

I said, ‘So you’re running as a Republican.’

Her folks still aren’t talking to me.

I would add something like, Goldwater Republican, or perhaps Reagan Republican. Definitely not a compassionate conservative, who would pay a Mexican $25 to pull weeds and invest the rest in a hedge fund through AIG.

Out of the mouths of babes
