We petition the Obama administration to: Investigate Chris Dodd and the MPAA for bribery after he publicly admited to bribing politicans to pass legislation.It's up to 10,378 as I write this. Christopher Dodd has learned something in the last few weeks about how the internet works in a democracy. I suspect he's about to learn a whole lot more.

Mind you, the chances of the Obama DoJ actually doing anything are pretty small; but every bit of pressure possible on these people is a good thing.
Speaking of corrupt politicians,
Crony capitalism is alive and well and occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The latest billionaire donor to cash in on his connections to President Obama is Warren Buffett, who now joins billionaire George “Solyndra” Kaiser and George “Petrobras” Soros in cashing in on Obama’s pay-to-play energy policy. Warren Buffett is about to make a pile of money off the Bakken Oil Shale in North Dakota the old-fashioned way with a monopoly worthy of John D. Rockefeller.
Here is how it works, President Obama put the brakes on the Keystone Pipeline, which would have delivered oil from Canada. That delay means Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad will be shipping a lot of oil (10 times as much as it does today) not from Canada but from North Dakota — American oil for American cars and plastics — and Berkshire Hathaway owns 22% of said railroad and will scarf up the remainder of the company.
The spin in Washington is that President Obama is walking a thin line between his labor union bosses and environmentalists. Hogwash. Whatever he decides, unions and tree-huggers will accept. What’s their alternative? Mitt Romney?
This decision was made through the State Department, not the EPA or the Department of Energy and for good reason. President Obama just pissed off Canada.But if you run it through the EPA, you raise environmental questions that may keep you from green-lighting the project later.
No reporter in Washington seemed to find that odd.
It should be noted that most of them seem to have no problem with Obama & Co. arming the drug cartels, either.
