Here’s the briefing:
Since Nov. 7, when a Louisiana suburbanite first asked the White House to let the Pelican State secede from the Union, Americans have watched with a mixture of curiosity and horror as more and more signatures have appeared on what are now more than 70 petitions from like-minded secessionists.
The Daily Caller reported Tuesday that 675,000 signatures had found their way to petitions on the Obama administrationâ€™s â€śWe the Peopleâ€ť Web page, but that number continue to grow, odometer-like, with each passing hour.

And now a South Carolina programmer has collected all the data in one easy-to-read place.
And, here’s that place. The map is updated every few minutes. Kudos to this blog site.
Texas residents are the most blue (numerically high) in seeking secession.
Sadly but not unexpectedly, Vermont is dead last. The whitest on the map.
Everybody in Vermont just loves a big, huge, omnipresent and omnipotent
God government. Everyone except me and a few brave others who visit here.
Update: As a commenter, er, commented, Vermont has a higher percentage (of signatures per total population) than some other states. I’m guessing, though, that those who want to secede do so because they think the United States is too conservative. They want more nanny-statism and government regulation than is currently possible in a nation that still has a few neo-cons running around.
