    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.

    Oops, alas! I should have known it was too hilarious to be true. Mythbusters already debunked the crocodile dance. There must have been some inspired joker in a back room who decided to use it as an example of the kind of myth the Prez could be confronting. Better wait till I get to the end of the column instead of laughing first, not last, next time.

    When Obama got the Democratic nomination, did:

    – we begin to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless?

    – the rise of the oceans begin to slow and our planet begin to heal?

    – we end a war and secure our nation and restore our image as the last, best hope on earth?

    He is disproving the myth that there is only one way to jump a shark.

    Where is everybody? Eighteen comments and no one is listing Obama myths.

    SO! Confirmed, plausible or busted:

    -Obama is a natural born American citizen.

    -Obama is a Christian.

    -Obama is the most intelligent president ever.

    -Obama gay love affair.

    -Obama is Mortimer Snerd, teleprompter is Edgar Bergen.

    Confirmed, plausible or busted:

    -Obama is a uniter.

    -Obama is a post-racial American president.

    -Obama is the first post-partisan American president.

    -Obama once told the truth. (Once admitted that he never, ever tells the truth but it was later proven to be a lie.)
