THE ADMINISTRATION DOES NOT SUPPORT BLOWING UP PLANETS:  The White House has responded to the citizen petition asking the administration to begin the construction of a Death Star by 2016. In part: "Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?"

related: was the destruction of the first Death Star an inside job?what's up with the trash compactor?; Ewok Holocaust.


  1. That maybe one of the best things I'll read this year, starting with the title of the response.

    I hate to support the frivolous nature of these petitions, and they are being used for some offensively dumb purposes, but that, that was just awesome!

  3. Without getting overly political, I'll say that I appreciate that the White House has responded in good humor and calmly to (I believe) every petition that's passed the 25K mark in the allotted time. When this first launched, I assumed it would turn into nothing but "legalize weed!" and "RON PAUL RULES!" petitions, and while there's been some of that, there's been some interesting stuff as well.
