The Obama administration will either rue the day it created an online petition system or look at it as one of its signature accomplishments. A little of both, perhaps.
The latest hilariousness to come out of said program is a petition to "authorize the production of a recurring television program featuring Vice President Joe Biden."
Now people want VP reality TV.
"Vice President Joe Biden has a demonstrated ability to bring people together, whether at the negotiating table or at the neighborhood diner," states the petition.
"We, therefore, urge the Obama Administration to authorize the production of a recurring C-SPAN television program featuring the daily activities and interactions of the Vice President of the United States with elected officials, foreign dignitaries and everyday American families."
"Such a program would not only educate the American public about the duties and responsibilities of their Vice President, it would provide a glimpse of the lighthearted side of politics even in the midst of contentious and divisive national debates."
We could all use a little bit more of that, but why should Joe Biden of all people get his own reality show? The more appropriate question might be why he shouldn't.
With his non-stop gaffes, expletives, wise cracks, Cheshire cat smiles and political gamesmanship, a day in the life of the Everyman VP would be must-see TV.
With approximately 1,600 signatures, the petition is still far from the 23,400 required to get a response from the White House, but give it time.
And go sign the thing.
