Electoral College May Decide Close Presidential Race

The close presidential race of 2012 could very well be decided by the Electoral College, a school that consistently has been voted among Playboy Magazine’s “Top Ten Party Schools of America.”

Students of the Electoral College debate foreign policy issues.

In the wisdom of the Founding Fathers, the same people who brought you separation of church and state except if it’s a religion you believe in, the popular vote of American citizens does not actually determine the winner of a presidential election. The president is elected by the vote of the Electoral College.

As has been the tradition for more than 200 years, students of the Electoral College select the next president of the United States at a toga party.

But what happens if the vote of the Electoral College ends up in a tie? The 12th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution explicitly covers this eventuality and states: “the race would then be decided by a duel with pistols at dawn, in the presence of two witnesses and a notary public.”

Unfortunately, the 12th Amendment does not specifically state that the candidates themselves must fight the duel, and Mitt Romney already has designated someone named Nabhanyu, of New Delhi, India, to fight in his place.
