Obama’s Change.gov … or not.

January 17, 2009

Obama’s Change.gov site will close down its internet suggestion box today, after a week of taking suggestions and opinions on the new administration’s executive policy from the web public at large. In standard Web 2.0 fashion, users can vote up or down on existing entries — the theory being that the best schemes will rise to top.

With 70,520 points at time of publication, the the most popular idea by a margin of 10,300 is “Ending Marijuana Prohibition.”

“I suggest that we step back and take a non-biased ‘Science Based’ approach to decide what should be done about the ‘Utter Failure’ that we call the War on (some) Drugs,” one entry reads.

Of course, the Obama team has done a notable job ignoring its top entry. The staff skipped directly to commenting on the second most popular idea in their videos of Obama administration officials addressing the cream of the crop.

Have your say so we can ignore you.

Have your say so we can ignore you.

 

Pffft.
