The White House responded — brilliantly — late Friday to a petition supporting construction of the ultimate national defense project, a “Star Wars”-style Death Star, posted to its website late last year:
- 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?
