From today's email:
George Bush is taking a stroll around Capitol Hill with a senior member of Congress when he meets a little girl carrying a small basket with a blanket over it.
Curious, he says to the girl, "What's in the basket?" She replies, "New baby kittens" and opens the basket to show him.
"How nice" said Bush. "What kind are they?" The little girl says, "Republicans".
Bush smiles and pats the little girl on the head and they continue on.
About three weeks later, he and another Congressional colleague are again strolling around Capitol Hill when he sees the little girl again with the same basket. Bush says to his colleague, "Watch this, it's very cute" and they approach the little girl.
Bush asks the girl how the kittens are and she says fine. He then says, "What kind of kittens are they?" and she replies, "Democrats." Somewhat abashed, Bush says, "Three weeks ago you said they were Republicans!"
"I know," she says. "But now their eyes are open".
