So now we're "maggots".

Citizens from 20 states have filed petitions on the White House “We The People” website seeking to secede from the union and form new state governments, The Washington Post reports. (Under the program, launched last year, the White House will respond to any petition that receives 25,000 or more signatures within 30 days.) Some of the signers may have been inspired by a Republican Party official in Texas who last week called for his state to secede from the United States and the “maggots” who re-elected Obama.
