It’s Official

The Electoral College–that antiquated little bit of Americana–met and cast their votes today, ratifying the results of November’s election. As expected, Barack Obama received 365 electoral votes while John McCain received 173.

Watch as the joint session of the Senate and House of Representatives give the results a standing ovation:

Of course Dick Cheney–who had to record and count all the votes–probably wasn’t having a very good time, considering the outcome of the vote.

    A Civil Action is now pending before the US District Court to Democratize the Electoral College that will assure that the Electoral College Vote will MAP the popular vote in future presidential elections without need of a constitutional amendment or any state legislative acts by enforcing the MAP (Mal-Apportionment Penalty) Clause of Amend. XIV§2 of the United States Constitution adopted July 28, 1868. {Ref: http://www.electors.us/}

    “Defendant’s [Cheney] certain bias presentation for tabulation in the Hall of the House of Representatives, January 6, 2009, (Note: Now January 8, 2009) of majority polled presidential electors from unbounded southern states ungrounded in either state or federal law , constitutes a discriminatory abridgment of the voting rights of minority polled presidential electors based on race and/or party affiliation in violation of the mal-apportionment penalty clause pursuant to the United States Constitution (Amend. XIV§2) and statutory Code (2U.S.C.§6).” –
