Not the response you were looking for.

An official petition to the White House to construct a Death Star got the requisite number of votes to necessitate a response.  The White House opened thusly:

The Administration shares your desire for job creation and a strong national defense, but a Death Star isn’t on the horizon. Here are a few reasons:

  • The construction of the Death Star has been estimated to cost more than $850,000,000,000,000,000. We’re working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it.
  • The Administration does not support blowing up planets.
  • Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?

The whole thing is hilarious.  Well-played, White House.  :)
