Too close to call…

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, Barack Obama returned to the starting line and he had ten fish.
Soon, John McCain returned and had no fish. Well, everyone assumed he was just having another ‘bad bald hair’ day or something and hopefully, he would catch up the next day.
At the end of the 2nd day Barack Obama came in with 20 fish and John McCain came in again with none.
That evening, Dick Cheney got together secretly with John McCain and said, ‘John, I think Barack Obama 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 Barack Obama returns with 50 fish), Dick said to John McCain, ‘Well, tell me, how is Barack cheating?’
John McCain replied, ‘Dick, you’re not going to believe this, but he’s cutting holes in the ice!’
