    Suggestions Wanted for “Obama on Mythbusters” Segment

    Suggestions Wanted for “Obama on Mythbusters” Segment

    Obama will be appearing on the Discovery Channel television program Mythbusters, according to an AP report (h/t Pundette):

    President Barack Obama will appear on an episode of “Mythbusters,” a television show that uses science to determine the truth behind urban legends.

    The White House says the episode will air Dec. 8 on the Discovery Channel.

    Discovery says the episode considers this question:  Did Greek scientist Archimedes set fire to an invading Roman fleet using only mirrors and the reflected rays of the sun?

    Officials say the president’s appearance, which has already been taped, is part of a White House push to promote math and science education.

    Now, if you were the director of the segment, which myths would you have had Obama bust?

    Let me get it started:

    • You can keep your health insurance and your doctor if you want to.
    • The Stimulus Plan has saved or created millions of jobs.
    • George Bush is to blame for our current record deficits.

    Help, please.

    Obama: was he in the Whoommp There It Is video?

    Dang it, Brent, you got to it first. My initial, astonished thought was, "Holy smokes, they're going to help the President jump the shark and ruin their brand.
