It's really, honestly, truly official now.

    Barack Obama will be the 44th President of the United States.

    The last step in our convoluted presidential election process concluded today: at 1:08 pm Eastern time, members of both houses of Congress convened in a Joint Session to read and ratify the votes cast by the Electoral College back in December.

    At this point, in theory, any Electoral College ballot can be challenged if a member of the House and a member of the Senate request a challenge (the challenge must be brought by both houses.) No challenges were brought forth. Also, there were no faithless electors. At 1:35 pm, the Vice President reported that by margins of 365-173 each, Barack Obama and Joseph Biden were elected President and Vice President of the United States.

    I'm glad its official. I know you had plenty of reasons to be nervous....similar to someone who cheats on his taxes who constantly looking over his/her shoulder..hoping the IRS isn't in tow.

    For the 2nd time in a week, I've spoken to Chicagoans 'in the know' that are intimately aware of the twisted, underhanded and treacherous dealings of Mr. Obama's ascention into his current status....as time will fully reveal...ugliness, unlawfulness, trickery, cunning, corruption and payoffs.

    It will be a sad day in libville, and one that not even I wish to see.

    Oh, star. *sigh*

    No matter what shenanigans you may dream up, at this point it's irrelevant. Just accept it, will you please? At the very least, make the best of a bad situation and move on.
