   "It's unlikely that secession was one of those important issues the White House contemplated. Neither was requiring the president... to have a beer with the founder of Fark.com, a website that aggregates weird and humorous news"

It's just as well. Obama would serve his crappy home brew instead of Heineken.

It would be hilarious if President Obama honored the petition to have a beer with Drew, and was completely and totally silent on the secession petitions.

Well, that just sucks.
Barry might just learn something from Drew, too.

What's with the sudden deluge of petitions? Is this a new thing?

Oh, and:

Residents representing every state but Vermont have signed online petitions since President Barack Obama's re-election last week

WTF Vermont? Bunch of slackers. .

Just because it isn't an important issue doesn't mean the president won't do it. Who wouldn't want to have a beer with Drew?

The Republicans in Congress un-ironically suggested that all the problems of gridlock could be solved if only the President had lunch with their membership more often.
They and their surrogates beat this drum for months. And the press, at best, gave them a pass on all that and more often, abetted it.

So it's pretty weak farkin sauce to dismiss a request from the citizenship for the President to have a beer with *their* surrogate as not "serious".

Even if we *aren't* entirely serious about it, the press has no standing to dismiss it.

It's actually the best way to respond to dipsticks. Instead of attacking them, which implies that they are worth taking seriously, you mock them or satirise their message, inviting others to ridicule them.

If only there was a website devoted to this so we could do it full time.

It's funny that you have to explain to people that signing an online petition will not actually allow a state to secede. I've seen ridiculous facebook posts regarding this nonsense.

I find it kind of ironic that in order to sign the petition you have to sign up to the website. As distrustful as many of these people are of the socialist/communist/whateverist regime they perceive, they would willingly go onto a goverment website and knowingly log their personal information.

But then again, these aren't the sharpest tools in the shed.

Officials promised to respond to all petitions with more than 25,000 signatures.

Predicted response:

How about no?! Does no work for you because it sure as hell works for us?!

FTA: "If you're hoping your state is going to actually secede you're probably wasting your time, but if you want public officials to know you're unhappy about something then I don't think signing petitions is a waste of time at all..."

So go waste your governor's/state representative's time instead.

I love how every time anyone suggests reining in ludicrous spending, or capping the staggeringly insane profits corporations make, whackjob Americans immediately label them "socialist" as if it's a bad thing. I've got news for you. The free market concept is the biggest threat, not only to the United States, but to the entire world.

Sounds as though "We The People" has become of sort of internet 911. How about I start a petition to have,say, 10 cases of beer delivered to my door every week?

Another non-story about this petition bs? Cripes, it must be a slow news week. I thought the Patreus scandal was tedious...

Let the Fair Weather Patriots rant. Next time they call you un-American or un-patriotic, you'll already have a good reason to ignore them.

It's a damn shame that what was actually a decent idea, creating a way for the people to directly bring an issue before their executive branch through popular petition, has been twisted into a joke by trolls who want to yuck it up on message boards about the stupid petitions they created.

Apparently, you can underestimate the stupidity of Americans.
