The Electoral College makes it official

 Joe's Biden's victory in the Electoral College became official yesterday evening a few minutes after 7 o'clock. Hawaii's votes were the last to be recorded. That pushed the total to 306 votes for the Biden/Harris ticket to 232 for Trump/Pence.

There will be a joint session of Congress on Jan 6th where the results will be counted. There is a strong possibility that the results in some battleground states will be challenged by butt hurt Republicans but because the results in 49 of 50 states were certified by the Safe Harbor Day, it will not be possible to overturn the final results.

There is a considerable number of Republican members in both chambers who have made public statements accepting the Biden win. In addition, there are at least four Senators who are on the record as plainly saying that they would not go along with any stupid and seditious scheme to flip the election in trump's favor, so getting a majority in either house to flip the results in even one state is not possible.

The odds that any ill-fated legal stratagem to get a second term for Mango Mussolini could ever have succeeded were very, very slim; the odds that one could succeed on Jan 6th are exactly zero.

Joe Biden will be inaugurated on the 6th of January. That's 35 days from today. 

Undoing the damage done to our Nation by four years of trump's venality, incompetence and hateful behavior will be a long and arduous process. And it begins, officially, on January 6th.
