Irrespective of your political party affiliation, this is cute (perhaps, a bit on the truthful side)
Best one I've seen in a long time.
=: TODAY'S MEDIA :=
A man is walking through the zoo when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to devour her right in front the little girl's screaming parents.
The man runs to the cage, hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch. Whimpering from the pain, the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the man returns her to her terrified parents.
A reporter has seen the whole scene and says to the rescuer:"Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I saw a man do in my whole life."
"Why, it was nothing," said the man. "Really, the lion was behind bars and I knew God would protect me just as He did Daniel in the lions den long, long ago. I just saw this little kid in danger, and acted as I felt was right."
"I noticed a bible in your pocket, are you a Republican," asked the journalist.
"Yes, and I'm a Christian on my way to a bible study," the man replies.
"Well, I'll make sure this won't go unnoticed... I'm a journalist and tomorrow's paper will have this on the front page."
The journalist leaves. The following morning the man buys the paper to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on first page:
"Right Wing Republican Christian Fundamentalist Assaults African Immigrant and Steals His lunch."

A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.
It enriches those who receive it,without making poorer those who give.It takes but a moment, but the memoryof it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that hecan get along without it,and none is so poor but thathe can be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home,fosters goodwill in business,and is the countersign of friendship.
It brings rest to the weary,cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,or stolen, for it is something that is of novalue to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile.Give them one of yours, as none needs a smileso much as he who has no more to give.
