Congress officially declares Obama next president
Source: AP

WASHINGTON (AP) Congress has officially declared Barack Obama the next President of the United States after tallying electoral college votes in a centuries old tradition.

The House and Senate met in joint session to hear their colleagues read off the electoral votes from the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The outcome, never in doubt, was 365 votes for Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden, and 173 votes for John McCain and his running mate, Sarah Palin.

Both Democrats and Republicans gave a standing ovation as Vice President Dick Cheney, in his role as president of the Senate, announced the vote count for Obama.

3. But the Birth Certificate is a Fake!!!!!111!
Why aren't they waiting for the great patriots challenging Obama's eligibility, oh now what a horrific constitutional crisis we're going to be in. I know the Supreme Court has turned down two patriots because they are so damned liberal and activist and whatever else but there must be more great American's ready to challenge the obviously forged birth certificate.

Also, isn't he the antichrist or something like that?

:evilgrin: :sarcasm:

Seriously I am overjoyed that the moron from Midland will be gone and gone for good in under two weeks. It's been a terrible, long and deadly eight years but it's damned near over.
