It’s Official

The real votes get counted today.

Congress will count the Electoral College votes for president and vice president Thursday in an exercise that has great meaning but holds absolutely no suspense.

Both chambers will meet in joint session at about 1 p.m. to officially count the votes. (Although the House will gavel in at 10 a.m., the chamber will then recess for a security sweep before the counting.)

Spoiler alert: Democrat Barack Obama wins with 365 votes against Republican John McCain’s 173 votes.

But what about that phony birth certificate…?
