Without Objection

The House and Senate confirmed President-elect Barack Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden’s 365-173 Electoral College win with no objections, confirming what some Republican staffers—their offices occasionally buffeted by complaints from Obama conspiracy theorists—said yesterday. It was the first protest-free ceremony of its kind since 1997, as Democrats rose to protest the Ohio vote count in 2005 and the Florida count in 2001.

Some Obama “Birthers” squealed in pain. That was predictable.

Before they conduct that count, they must investigate whether Barack Obama is Constitutionally eligible to be president which means they must vett (sic) him to see if he is a natural born citizen.  This is the last backstop we the people have before we enter into a Constitutional crisis.

The Obama “birth” scam has been great traffic and fundraising bait for some far-right web sites. World Net Daily, the site that publishes Swift Boat author Jerome Corsi — who also wrote a controversial, factually-challenged book sliming Obama — is already looking past this final confirmation of the president-elect’s victory, and offering readers the chance to pay $10 to Fed Ex the Supreme Court about more anti-Obama junk lawsuits challenging his win.
