Obama & McCain Ice Fishing!

The Presidential election was too close to call. Neither the
Republican candidate nor the Democratic candidate had enough votes to win. There
was much talk about ballot recounting, court challenges, etc., but a week-long
ice fishing competition seemed the sportsmanlike way to settle things. The
candidate that caught the most fish at the end of the week would win the
election.

After much of back and forth discussion, it was decided
that the contest take place on a remote frozen lake in northern Minnesota


There were to be no observers present, and both men were to be
sent out separately on this isolated lake and return at 5 P.M. with their catch
for counting and verification by a team of neutral parties. At the end of the
first day, John McCain returned to the starting line and he had ten
fish.

Soon, Obama returned and had no fish. Well, everyone assumed
he was just having another 'bad hair' day or something and hopefully, he would
catch up the next day.

At the end of the 2nd day John McCain came
in with 20 fish and Obama came in again with none.

That evening,
Harry Reid got together secretly with Obama and said, "Obama, I think John
McCain is a low-life, cheatin' son-of-a-gun. I want you to go out tomorrow and
don't even bother with fishing. Just spy on him and see just how he is
cheating."

The next night (after John McCain returns with 50 fish),
Harry Reid said to Obama, 'Well, tell me, how is he
cheating?'

Obama replied, 'Harry, you're not going to believe this,
but he's cutting holes in the ice.
