Well, it's official... again

Nice to see we're getting more of the bullshit formalities out of the way:
Electors in all 50 states and the District of Columbia met Monday and officially cast their votes in one of the final steps in the 2008 presidential election.

By constitutional requirement, each state’s electors meet on the first Monday following the second Wednesday in December. Electors must cast ballots for both president and vice president and sign six “Certificates of Vote” and “Certificates of Ascertainment” that report the results to the nearest federal judge, each Secretary of State, the National Archives and Vice President Dick Cheney.
Sure sure. Constitution this, tradition that. The fun part? Are you ready for the fun part? Because here comes the fun part:
On January 6, Cheney will read the results and certify the election in front of a joint session of Congress before Obama is sworn in on January 20.
The sweetness of this day cannot be overstated and is overshadowed only by November 4th and the main event, the one we're all waiting for, 1/20/09: The End of an Error.

Think Cheney's ticker can take the strain of all that "respect for the constitution" stuff he'll have to endure on the 6th? I'd hate to see the old bastard croak before we can get the shackles on him.
