White House Petition of the Day: ‘Ignition (Remix)’ as the National Anthem
The latest petition from the White House’s We The People forum calls on the Obama administration to make R. Kelly’s 2003 R&B hit “Ignition (Remix)” the new national anthem of the United States. Since its creation on March 3, the petition has managed to receive more than 5,300 signatures of its 100,000 goal in the first 72 hours.
There go my hopes for an Obama “Big Block of Cheese Day.”
I’m sorry. I love the song, but this is absurd. Petitions for real political change don’t get enough signatures to even get on the table, but this (and the Death Star petition…which I think is the reason they upped the signature count to 100,000) happens. I’m all for humor, but THIS IS WHY WE CAN’T HAVE NICE THINGS!
