Apparently, It Takes Awhile To Count Votes From The Dead

Among the GOP's wins last Tuesday was the Senate seat that once belonged to Barack Obama back when he was an inexperienced junior Senator, lo so many years ago.  Wait... it was only two years ago?

Seriously, the election in Illinois was actually two elections -- one to fill the remaining month-plus of Obama's term (ineptly manned by Roland Burris for the past 21 months or so) and then to take his Senate seat permenently.  This meant the winner would be able to serve immediately in the upcoming lame-duck situation... or would have been, if Illinois could certify its resuts.

Best part is that this means the state government is either irredeemably corrupt, or incompetent.  Or more likely both.
