The White House is obligated to provide a response to petitions on its website that reach 25,000 signatures. Sometimes that leads to having to answer to some pretty silly stuff. I’m glad the Obama administration is having fun with it.

  • 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 response is worth a read — even the parts that start to sound a little like a campaign speech.
