White House: petitions – We the People (September 22, 2011)
White House – petitions: removing “Under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance (September 24, 2011)
White House – petitions: almost something for everyone (September 28, 2011)
White House – petitions: definitely worth signing (September 29, 2011)
Today, at the White House site:
Since these petitions are ignored apart from an occasional patronizing and inane political statement amounting to nothing more than a condescending pat on the head, we the signers would enjoy having the illusion of success. Since no other outcome to this process seems possible, we demand that the White House immediately assign a junior staffer to compose a tame and vapid response to this petition, and never attempt to take any meaningful action on this or any other issue. We would also like a cookie.

We are a nation of smartasses. There is hope for the republic.
And signing a petition doesn’t do shit. Also, too.
