HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!

Both The Daily Caller and BuzzFeed noted on Wednesday that one petition submitted on Tuesday asked the White House to “allow everyone to punch Grover Norquist in the dick.”

“Peacefully grant the people of the United States of America to have Grover Norquist be brought forth in chains and put in a public pillory,” the petitioner wrote. “Once Grover Norquist has been secured, anyone who wishes will be allowed to punch him once, and only once, square in the dick.”

But by Thursday, that page had been replaced with an explanation that said the “petition you are trying to access has been removed from the site under our Moderation Policy because it is in violation of our Terms of Participation.”

The website’s Moderation Policy specifically bans “[t]hreats of unlawful violence or harm to any individual or group” and “[o]bscene, vulgar, or lewd material.”

Yes, I know this is childish and puerile.

No, I'm not seriously advocating for violence against anyone, even Mr. Norquist.

Still, as Larry the Cable Guy would say, "I don't care who ya are, that's funny right there!"

I especially like the "once, and ONLY once" restriction. 'Cus otherwise, you know, some people might go overboard.

Carry on.

Update: Thanks to Senor Unoball for noting that Wonkette is all over this, including this Comment of the Week:

"Too late, I think it's already been shrunk down to the size where it can drown in the bathtub."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
