View Full Version : McCain-Obama fishing contest

08-20-2008, 08:31 AM
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.

Therefore, it was decided that there should be an ice fishing contest
between the two candidates to determine the winner.

After much 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 Mc. 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 day or something and hopefully, he would catch up the
next day.

At the end of the 2nd day John Mc. 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 Mc. 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 Mc. returns with 50 fish), Reid said to Obama, 'Well,
tell me, how is John Mc. cheating?'

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

Experience Counts
