"brought to you by the official White House website" makes it sound as if the White House initiated this. The White House public petition website is an open line where people can bring whatever issues, great and small, serious and frivolrous, earnest and humorous. If anyone thinks this petition is a White House idea, they really need to reinitialize.

Reading threat titles might be useful :-D

Also, to make it onto that site a petition must get at least 25,000 signatures.

It is pretty funny. As I understand the rules, the White House promices to respond to any petition with over 25,000 electrosigs. For this one, they must respond by 2016. Perhaps an unpaid intern will whip off a feasibility study.

Nah, this looks more like some of Kaa's handiwork. Look at the language.

There are a lot of people in the US, and the tails of the curve run out a long way. It's not hard to get 25,000 of them to click on a ridiculous idea on a website, particularly if it involves Star Wars and sounds sort of cool.
