Why the 'We the People' Logan Act online petition is unintentionally hysterical.

You know what my favorite thing is about the We the People “File charges against the 47 U.S. Senators in violation of The Logan Act in attempting to undermine a nuclear agreement” petition?

  • It’s not that the author of it doesn’t understand that the Senate is explicitly empowered by the Constitution to advise and consent (which includes ‘withholding consent,’ for the benefit of progressives and other buffoons) in the matter of treaties.
  • It’s not that the author of it doesn’t even understand the difference between ‘violating the Logan Act’ and ‘treason.’
  • And it’s not even that every person who has signed this petition has outed him or herself as a feebleminded, pig-ignorant would-be monarchist who is absolutely desperate to abandon the responsibilities of a citizen of the Republic and instead bow his or her servile neck to a mortal king.

No, my favorite thing about this petition is that it hit the 100,000 threshold. By the White House’s own rules, this means that there has to be a response.  I can’t wait to hear what it is. Spoiler warning: not even Barack Obama is enough of a fool to try to arrest the Senate.  I personally think that the White House will just ignore the petition entirely.  I mean, what are the monarchists gonna do if Obama does that?  Pout?
