Democracy can result in requests for some very odd things – particularly when it’s college football fans taking advantage of the democratic process.
The latest example of this came on Monday, likely as the BCS title game was still being played out. A petition was submitted to the White House through its “We the People” channel asking that Alabama QB AJ McCarron “be deported so that Brent Musburger can steal his girlfriend.”
Alas, entering “McCarron” into a search of the current open petitions on “We the People” does not yield any results, suggesting that this motion has moved on to Petition Heaven along with the ones asking for Auburn to fire Gene Chizik and Jay Jacobs and a pardon for Ohio State football.
It’s also worth pointing out that since McCarron was born in the United States, deportation is not an option for “dealing with him.”
May we humbly ask the White House to create a section of “We the People” devoted to dead petitions of college fans requesting ridiculous things? Pretty please?
