The best of the non-secession petitions to the White House

Update: The petition has been removed for violating We the People's terms of participation

The rush of new secession-inspired We the People petitions following President Obama’s reelection has included some old saws, some absolute arcana and a fair amount of vitriol on both sides.

I think this one takes the prize, though, for sheer cleverness:

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:

Have President Obama Do The Hokey Pokey

We feel that in this time of despair, that President Obama should do the Hokey Pokey on national television during a special Presidential Address to the nation. As a show of bipartisanship, President Obama should lead with his right foot. After all, that's what it's all about.

Created: Nov 14, 2012

Note the admonition that the president lead with his right foot to promote bipartisanship. Thanks David S. Maybe that is what it’s all about.
