John Darnielle for Poet Laureate
In literature, there is no man more worthy of recognition through the award of U.S. Poet Laureate than John Darnielle.
A petition on whitehouse.gov recommends that President Obama recognize John Darnielle as US Poet Laureate. We’re not telling you to sign, per se, but if you enjoyed The Mountain Goats at Evening of Awesome on Tuesday, you may be interested in helping bring the petition to its goal of 25,000 signatures. Let’s call it “highly recommending.”
(We’re also not guaranteeing that it’ll get a response as epic as the Death Star petition, but hey, it’s worth a shot!)
