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

One We the People petitioner's hokey plea for national unity

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:


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.

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.
