White House petition calls for Joe Biden reality TV show

It seems that Americans want more of Joe Biden — not in his role as Vice President, but in a role as reality TV show star.

A White House petition, created on Friday, is calling for a recurring C-SPAN program featuring the gaffe-prone leader.

“Vice President Joe Biden has a demonstrated ability to bring people together, whether at the negotiating table or at the neighborhood diner,” the petition reads. “We, therefore, urge the Obama Administration to authorize the production of a recurring C-SPAN television program featuring the daily activities and interactions of the Vice President with elected officials, foreign dignitaries and everyday American families.”

The petition claims the TV series would education Americans about the role of Vice President and show the “lighthearted side of politics in the midst of contentious and divisive national debates.”

The petition quickly crossed the threshold — 150 signatures — to become publicly searchable on the WhiteHouse.gov website and has received more than 1,000 signatures at the time of this article. In order to prompt an official White House response, the petition must reach 25,000 signatures by Feb. 3, 2012.

The proposed reality show wouldn’t be the VP’s only popular television appearance. He recently had a cameo on NBC‘s “Parks and Recreation where he had his personal space invaded by city councilwoman Leslie Knope, played by Amy Poehler.

With the comedic nature of his everyday life and his frequent awkward comments, there’s no doubt that a Biden-centric TV show would get good ratings. But it would also make a mockery of the Vice Presidency — more than Biden holding that position in the first place does, if that’s even possible.
