Few Things Needed To Happen More Than The "Ignition (Remix)" Becoming Our New National Anthem

Don't know how I feel about this.  On the one hand, IT'S THE REMIX TO IGNITION HOT AND FRESH OUT THE KITCHEN, but on the other hand it's convicted child rapist R.Kelly stamping his legacy on American history for the foreseeable centuries.

Pretty torn here.  While iTunes can tell you that this petition can easily get enough signatures within the next 2 minutes, it's the moral obligation.  Despite what Chappelle said, Kellz doesn't fall under the same "He made Thriller" rules that Michael Jackson tip-toed the line of - he peed on a teenage girl...and made chapters 5-200 of "Trapped in the Closet."  Both condemnable offenses.  Another positive in R.Kelly's case is the fact that he chose to stand by the nickname, "The Pied Piper of R&B."  Not an ounce of historical reference in his bones. The audacity of a man to maintain a nickname that essentially means "child creeper" while being a alleged child creeper is almost admirable.

Got my vote.
