Why doesn't this footer hug the bottom of the page?

Head out to http://specialpromotionsinc.com/partner/home.php. On IE, it looks fine, but in Safari, the black footer is up towards the middle of the page.

I've played around with several things but have come up short. What am I missing? How can I get the footer to hug the bottom of the page in Safari as well as in IE?

Here's my stylesheet:

@media screen and (max-width: 1024px) { /* Specific to this particular image */
  img.bg {
    left: 50%;
    margin-left: -512px;   /* 50% */
  }
}

body {
	font-family: Helvetica, Microsoft Sans Serif;
	font-size: 12px;
	color: #ffffff;
	vertical-align: top;
	padding: 0px;
	height: 100%;
	min-height:100%;
	width: 100%;
	margin: 0;
	background-color:#ffffff;
}

#container {
min-height:100%;
position:relative;
}

#header {
margin: 0;
height:156px;
width:100%;
background-image: url(images/gradient.png);
background-repeat:repeat-x;
}

#top_graphics {
margin:auto;
width:1000px;
height:156px;
}

#wagon_wheel {
margin:auto;
width:1000px;
height:529px;
}

#content {
padding-bottom:35px;
min-height:100%;
}

#footer {
position:absolute;
bottom:0;
width:100%;
height:35px;   /* Height of the footer */
background-color:#000000;
clear:both;
}

#footer_text {
position:relative;
margin:auto;
text-align:center;
font-family: Helvetica, Microsoft Sans Serif;
font-size: 12px;
color: #ffffff;
padding-top:10px;
}

A.footer_text
{
font-family: Helvetica, Microsoft Sans Serif;
font-size: 12px;
color: #ffffff;
text-decoration:none;
}

A.footer_text:Hover 
{
font-family: Helvetica, Microsoft Sans Serif;
font-size: 12px;
color: #ffffff;
text-decoration:underline;
}

A.footer_text:Visited
{
font-family: Helvetica, Microsoft Sans Serif;
font-size: 12px;
color: #ffffff;
text-decoration:none;
}
