White House Declares Loyalty to Rebel Alliance…Due Mostly to Fiscal Responsibility

The White House – or at least its Chief of the Science and Space Branch at the White House Office of Management and Budget – has responded to that petition for the Obama Administration to build a Death Star that everyone has been talking about.

Yeah. This is the first I’m hearing about this too.

However, the response from the White House gave me just the giggle I needed to start the weekend off right. I like that the petition response acknowledges the countless jobs the construction of the Death Star would create, but my favorite part is probably the initial list of reasons why the Obama Administration will not be building a Death Star:

  • 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?

Don’t fret my Death Star desiring friends; I’m sure Karl Rove and Newt Gingrich are building one in their basements as we speak.
