Meteor Blades reported recently that the Texas crybabies now number over 115,000 signatures on the White House petition to secede from the union.

That is more than 3 times the next leading contender of sore losers in neighboring Louisiana with 30 something thousand.

The population of Texas exceeds 25 million.
Louisiana has 4.5 million people according to the 2010 census

Texas votes for Romney were about the same as the population of Louisiana, 4.5 million. Louisiana gave Romney 1.15 million votes.

So, the knuckle draggers that have signed the petition to secede represent what percentage of the GOP in these states? I'm glad you asked, I have a calculator.

Texas:  115,000 knuckle draggers (some out of state, I know) out of 4,500,000 = 2.555%

Louisiana: 30000 knuckle draggers out of 1,150,000 = (amazingly) 2.60869%

Is this proof that knuckle draggers are a consistent component of the GOP from state to state? Probably. Does this mean that 2% of Democratic voters are similarly afflicted? No, shut up. Don't think about it.

Got me thinking of what should be the White House response, and I think it might be fun to get "y'alls" help on this. (what is the plural of "y'all"?)

The plural of y'all is

"all y'all"
So, let's look at some of the options for an official White House response to the knuckle draggers.
