Not a joke.

Someone wants "Smooth" to represent more than just the summer of 1999, because they've created a petition asking that it replace "Hail to the Chief" as the official Presidential Anthem of the United States.

The petition says, quote, "Playing 'Smooth' shall precede the appearance of the President at official functions and gatherings.  The song shall be performed by an appropriate live band . . . ideally, Carlos Santana and Rob Thomas."

The petition it hasn't really caught on yet, but it is on the White House's petition site.

If it gets 100,000 signatures by April 2nd, the government will issue a response.

God Bless America.
