It's not really bogus - it's just not democratic. If the US was truly democratic, we would simply count up every individual vote and the highest sum wins.
But the US is not and never has been a democracy (that is a myth or a semantic problem), it's always been a republic. Which, in a way, is a good thing because it gives more power to localities over the federal government. It's complicated.

Edit: Obama has now won. Unless a lingering problem mounts in Ohio or Florida like we saw in the 2000 and 2004 elections.

Hilariously non-gracious whiny sore loser concession speech from Todd Aiken by the way.

I wonder what people would say if Romney won the popular vote but Obama won the Electoral.

Spoke in the wheels?

I would say it's yet another example of why we should abolish the electoral college system.

And I'd also say it's a fair trade for 2000.

True that!

Well, Congrats to President Re-elect Obama!
I just hope that with still a Republican majority in the House that we don't see the same last 4 years!

It looks like weed is about to be legal in Colorado, too (Prop 64).
Pretty good US election day overall.

CNN calls it: congratulations to President Obama, re-elected for another four years. Can't wait to hear Romney's bad-natured concession speech (apparently he only wrote a victory one)!

And now, I'm off to bed. 4:30 AM in Ireland.

Worth waiting up for though.

Thank you, good night, and er, God bless America!
