    Again. It's been up and down at least three times in the last two hours or so. Looks to me like the federal government's sheer incompetence encompasses a lot more than the gang of blue-shirted thugs.

    I wonder if Nappy's adding names to her 'domestic extremist' list as we speak.

    You know, the kind of list her successor will 1) deny exists, 2) deplore it's existence, 3) keep and keep adding to.

    Can't handle the load from frustrated, groped Americans? That's a statement in itself!

    Up to 3136.

    In a day.

    It's gone from 140 to 3235 in roughly 4 hours.

    Wait, I thought it was created yesterday. If not, that's even more awesome.

    At about 8AM Mountain Standard (GMT -0700) there were less than 150 "signatures." Four hours later there are 3542. Even if it was created yesterday, that's a hefty spike.

    Oh, right, I...

    Coffee. Need more coffee. Now.

    That's also quite a :poop:load of disgruntled domestic terrorists.

    Fewer than 800 signatures to go before it hits 5,000!!!

    Just because it hits 5K is no reason to stop telling people about it.

    I'd like to see 100K+ signatures on that - if for no other reason than I'd love for the number of signatures to exceed the number of current TSA clowns at the checkpoints.

    5028 and counting....

    ....and it's passed the 5K mark. 5,036 at this time.

    Totally agree. Is there a way to find out where this petition ranks with others on the same site in terms of the amount of time it took to reach 5,000 signatures?

    Is there a way to alert media to this?

    It looks like the petition subsection started only yesterday, so there is not much history. There is a button to sort the "open petitions" by number of signatures ("popular"). Currently, Anti-TSA is in fourth place.

    Sent to Drudge hoping it'll grow (longer) legs.

    Looks like 2 might have been "rigged?"

    I dunno about "rigged." It's easy to get potheads stoked up about legalizing their weed. I know nothing at all about the Rubashkin case.

    The legalize-marijuana issue has also been a point of contention for a lot longer than TSA has, so it has more general public mindshare among travelers and non-travelers alike.
