Re: Political Joke...
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
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 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 hair' 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, cheating 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), Harry 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.'
Just goes to show you, Experience Does Count
