Okay, that answer was, I admit, clever. Well done. If only they'd take the various serious conservative proposals so seriously. Or apply the same level of candor and common sense to Benghazi.

For a bit of fun, here's the official White House response to a petition calling for the construction of a Death Star, a la the Empire's deadly ultimate weapon in the Star Wars franchise. Personally, I find the best part of this letter to be the order of the two reasons given: 1) It would cost too much, and 2) Oh yeah, we don't want to blow up other plants, and also, flawed design. Enjoy:
