Joe Biden, Reality TV Star? Huh?
Kim Kardashian. Honey Boo Boo. Joe Biden?
Vice President Biden could join the ranks of the reality TV elite if the supporters of a new petition have their way.
A petition published on the White House website is urging the Obama administration to authorize a recurring TV show on public-affairs cable network C-SPAN that would chronicle Biden's day-to-day antics as he interacts with the world at large.

The petition cites Biden's winning personality and unifying presence as a selling point for the potential ratings-grabber.
"Vice President Joe Biden has a demonstrated ability to bring people together, whether at the negotiating table or at the neighborhood diner," the petition reads. "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 with elected officials, foreign dignitaries and everyday American families."
The petition goes on to assert that the program would educate the public about the vice president's duties and responsibilities, but also provide "a glimpse of the lighthearted side of politics even in the midst of contentious and divisive national debates."

4. All the BS popping up has led to a new petition to END WH petitions
I think it's a great idea!
New White House petition: End petitions
4:30p.m. EST December 31, 2012
It had to happen: The White House is being petitioned to end petitions.
Citing calls to deport CNN host Piers Morgan for advocating gun control, a new post says that "White House petitions are being gamed to the point of absurdity."
Adding that the site "is becoming farcical," the new request says, "maybe it's time for the petition to end all petitions."
