Once upon a time, long, long ago there was a Presidential election
that was too close to call. Neither the Republican presidential
candidate nor the Democratic presidential candidate had enough
votes to win the election. Therefore, it was decided that there
should be an ice fishing contest between the two candidates to determine the final

There was much talk about ballot recounting, court challenges, etc.,
but a week-long ice fishing competition seemed the (manly) way to
settle things.

The candidate who catches the most fish at the end of the week wins.
After a lot of back and forth discussion, it was
decided that the contest would take place on a remote and cold lake in

There were to be no observers present and both men were to be sent
out separately on this remote lake and return daily with
their catch for counting and verification.

At the end of the first day, George W. returns to the headquarters
and he has 10 fish. Soon, Kerry, who has answers to everything, but no
plan, returns and has zero fish.

Well, everyone assumes he is just having another bad hair day or
something and hopefully, he will catch up the next day. At the end of
the 2nd day George W. comes in with 20 fish and Kerry comes
in again with none.

That evening, Bill Clinton gets together secretly
with Kerry and says,
"I think George W. is a lowlife 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 if he is cheating in any way.

The next night (after George W. comes back with 50
fish), Clinton says to Kerry, "Well, what about it, is George W.
cheatin?'" "He sure is, Bill, he's cutting holes in the ice."
