I just couldn't resist posting this bit of election humor I saw on the internet. If it offends you just pretend it is about the other candidate. Here's the joke: 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.' Experience Counts

That was so funny. I guess if you are a do nothing candidate, you will be a do nothing president, all talk and no actions. That is why I am hoping McCain will win. But imagining Obama not knowing how to ice fish. I bet he just used ice for bait and wanted the fish to jump through the ice.

The joke was all in good fun. I saw an interview done with Obama in Field and Stream Magazine, so I'm pretty sure he knows how to fish. The moral of the story was right on, though.
