Petitions on Crack
In the wake of the hubbub this week over petitions to the White House calling for numerous states to secede from the union following Obama's re-election--and surprising news that any gaining more than 25,000 sigs must get an official response--we are studying some of the other serious/fun proposals. Buzzfeed has its own Top 10 collection, and several are very close to passing 25,000. One favorite, calling for everyone to be allowed to punch Grover Norquist once "in the dick" was only three shy of the magic number last we checked....Others includes forcing the President to attend a Fark.com party--and deporting everyone who signed one of the many "secede" petitions.
