The White House responds to the petition to build a Death Star.on January 11, 2013 at 10:49 PM
Whoever they got to write this reply to building a fully operational battle station sure knew their Star Wars memes. I especially like the bullet point that reads “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 only thing not put in was some reference to Admiral Ackbar’s most famous line, which might have been an acknowledgement of its over-use. Well played.
Oh, and it’s nice to know they’re not in favor of blowing up planets, even though I’d mostly just be concerned about one, at least for now.
