I gotta say, I love the petitions on the White House websites, simply because they show the best and worst of people.
On the one hand, the most popular petition (ie: the one with the most signatures) is "Label Westboro Baptist Church an officially recognized hate-group". It's got over 300k signatures, when all that's required for the President to look it over is 25k. That shows there are intelligent people out there that know stupidity and hate when they see it.
Of course, just about every other popular petition on the site goes against that idea, including the multiple "Allow Texas/Alabama/North Carolina/Tennessee/etc to peacefully secede from the US and form their own government" petitions.
Still, they're fun to look over, if only to see what issues are really important to some people.
