Before you know it, it's November 8th, 2016. Many people stay up all night just to see the results.

But the show ain't over 'til the fat lady sings, and on Thursday, December 15th, 2016, the Electoral College will meet and formally elect Donald Trump into office. Of course, there's a tiny little gotcha here, and it's politely called faithless electors. We the great unwashed do not vote directly for the President; we actually vote for people in the Electoral College who have sworn to vote for, say, the Democratic candidate. Should the Democrats win, your Electoral College representative shows up on the 15th and does what they've promised to do, vote for the Democratic Candidate. Or not, as the case may be. You see, they have a choice in the matter, and while many of them will face criminal charges should they vote in a faithless manner, others do not. In any event, criminal charges don't stop criminals from committing crime (gun control, anyone?). So your Elector might, instead of voting Democrat as they are sworn to do, vote for the Green Party candidate instead.
The entire Electoral College procedure was started because the founding fathers, in their infinite wisdom, knew that the race to the White House was a popularity contest, and that there was every chance in the world that the fatheads and dildos in our fair country might elected a real, genuine, fourteen carat, chrome plated, clown in a chariot driven side car as President, in which case they would all become faithless electors and put someone else in the White House. As of 2015, there have been 115 cases of faithless electors in the United States since the show started. Now then, given the tenor of this election (bat shit crazy), I think that there is a possibility we could see this happen again.
But if everything goes as planned, on Friday, January 20, 2017, Donald Trump will be sworn in as our new President, we'll have a boss lookin' First Lady, and the SJWs, etc. et al will increase their dosages of Prozac and begin the long, tedious process of vilifying a sitting President who doesn't deserve it.
Me, I congratulate Donald Trump for his victory. In spite of an openly biased commercial media, a divided Republican Party, and an opponent who qualifies as the poster child for moral turpitude and who was willing to do absolutely anything to win - Donald Trump won.
Hitlery, Slick Willie, and the Ayatollah Obongo are going to have to attend the inauguration ceremony and publicly congratulate someone that they'd like to see boiled in oil - literally. Then there's the ceremonial packing up of the ex-first family and the turning over of the keys to the doublewide. I'd really like to see how that meeting goes.
One other thing.
