The petition needs 100,000 signatures by April 2 for the White House to officially review it, and as of this writing it stands at 626 signatures. If you love this country, you will exercise your civic duty and sign it. Head below for the specifics of the petition, which present an unassailable case in favor of the change.
America has changed since Francis Scott Key penned our current anthem in 1814. Since then, we have realized that after the show, it’s the afterparty, and that after the party, it’s the hotel lobby, and — perhaps most importantly — that ’round about four, you’ve got to clear the lobby, at which point it’s strongly recommended that you take it to the room and freak somebody. President Obama: we ask you to recognize the evolution of this beautiful country and give us an anthem that better suits the glorious nation we have become.”
Hard to argue with that. Now, go sign the damn thing!
