Subject: Presidential election

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 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, Barack 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), Reid said to
Obama, 'Well, tell me, how is John McCain cheating?'

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

Experience Counts
