IMPERIAL CENTER, CORUSCANT – The overwhelming military superiority of the Galactic Empire has been confirmed once again by therecent announcement by the President of the United States that his nation would not attempt to build a Death Star, despite the bellicose demands of the people of his tiny, aggressive planet. “It is doubtless that such a technological terror in the hands of so primitive a world would be used to upset the peace and sanctity of the citizens of the Galactic Empire,“ said Governor Wilhuff Tarkin of the Outer Rim Territories. “Such destructive power can only be wielded to protect and defend by so enlightened a leader as Emperor Palpatine.”

Representatives on behalf of the nation-state leader from the unimaginatively named planet refused to acknowledge the obvious cowardice of their choice, preferring instead to attribute the decision to fiscal responsibility. “The costs of construction they cited were ridiculously overestimated, though I suppose we must keep in mind that this miniscule planet does not have our massive means of production,” added Admiral Conan Motti of the Imperial Starfleet.

Emissaries of the Emperor also caution any seditious elements within the Galactic Senate not to believe Earth’s exaggerated claims of there being a weakness in the Death Star design. “Any attacks made upon such a station — should one ever be built — would be a useless gesture,” added Motti.

Not the Obama’s specifically but a fictional first family. 1600 Penn is being written by former White House speechwriter, Jon Lovett.

Cast of Glee perform ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ at the White House

OUCH. If this is a precursor to the tour (which it probably is not) people are going to be pissed. I understand the lack of live music, auto-tune, make up, costumes etc hurts but I would have expected there to be some degree of natural talent and production value. Even Lea Michele, whose live theater work helps her out immensely here, isn’t singing full out at times. I just stopped believing.

Turns out Michelle Obama and daughters love those singing Fox kids, and thusly have invited them to perform at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll April 5th.

Because what Easter Egg hunt is complete without a show stopping number from TV’s hottest new show?

In related news the cast of Modern Family will be coming to my Passover seder.
