Compassionate Conservativism

from - smijer

This landed in my e-mail in-box today as a lawyer joke. I'll pass it along, slightly modified:

One afternoon, Dick Cheney was riding in his limousine when he saw two men along the roadside eating grass. Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and he got out to investigate.

He asked one man, "Why are you eating grass? "We don't have any money for food," the poor man replied. "We have to eat grass."

"Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I'll feed you," Cheney said.

"But sir. I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there, under that tree"

"Bring them along," Cheney replied. Turning to the other poor man he stated, "You come, too."

The second man, in a pitiful voice then said, "But sir, I also have a wife and SIX children with me!"

"Bring them all," Cheney answered.

They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine was.
Once underway, one of the poor fellows turned to Cheney and said,

"Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking us all with you."

Cheney replied, "Glad to do it. You'll really love my place. The grass is almost a foot high.”
