Not to take the cheap shot, but...

President Barack Obama said Monday he is appearing on "Mythbusters," a television series that uses science to separate fact from fiction.
Awesome! Maybe he'll bring his birth certificate!

I thought the exact same thing...

ROFLMAO... I wish I had thought the same thing. What makes great bloggers like Tam different from the lackeys like me :-).

He's doing the Archimedes mirrored shield heat ray myth. They've done that twice already on Mythbusters. So is Barry just covering old hoary ground again, reviewing outdated ideas where the efficacy is fully known and found wanting today?

Oh Oh Oh, where's the unicorn!

NJT,

"So is Barry just covering old hoary ground again, reviewing outdated ideas where the efficacy is fully known and found wanting today?"

Heh. :)

Well, if he's doing that with his official policies... :D

And I had such respect for Jamie and Adam. Sigh.....

Dang. I was hoping this is the myth they'd be busting, as Omama recently pleaded...

"The truth is, it is going to take a lot longer to dig ourselves out of this hole," Michelle is quoted as saying..."

But I guess the excavation will continue apace for the next two years.

I thought maybe the myth of socialist prosperity was going to be busted.

Maybe they can teach the Commander-in-Chief and Harvard law school educated mega-genius how to properly pronounce "corps"?

George said...

AMEN and a hearty guffaw to Tam, Warriorgeek, NJT, Brigid, Bram and Tango Juliet! I'm hoisting one for all of you!

New Jovian Thunderbolt said...

Hey, did I use 'hoary' right? Hate to step on a peeve...

Tam said...

Yes, why?

Desertrat said...

Aside from the myth that he was born and not hatched, what other myths will they bust? There are almost too many to count...

IZinterrogator said...

Someone pointed out on Cam Edwards' Facebook page that he could test the myth that you can shoot down an airliner with a .50 sniper rifle or that an AR does more damage than a semi-auto .30-06 hunting rifle.

I'm guessing that the annointed one will try to prove that the large cylinder found during the construction at the Hobbs End railway station is in fact a prehistoric rendering of a Prius and that those aren't insects but proto-hippies, therefore confirming the validity of his plans.

Or some other such nonsense to fill time between commercials. Full steam ahead!

Brigid,

Apparently some nuns in Meath County, Ireland have some, according to ThinkGeek.com.

ThinkGeek is selling the meat, with ground up horn "sparkles", for $10/can.

Won't that frost B. Hussein Obama?

I can settle this birth certificate thing once and for all. I have a friend who's going to Kenya as a missionary soon. I've asked him to pick me up a copy.

As is so often the case, BHO's appearance is the right idea being applied the wrong way.

They should have invited Congress to appear on Mythbusters and then exposed them to sunlight.

I'm betting it would look like Margaret Hamilton's final scene in the Wizard Of Oz.

Now really, the birth certificate thing is a non-starter. Although Barry never showed it, I quote from Fox News, "Health Department Director Chiyome Fukino said Friday that she and the registrar of vital statistics have personally verified that the health department holds Obama's original birth certificate".

So, a Democratic appointee has made a public statement (not, however, a sworn statement )that the document exists, although not what information is on it.

Of course it's true, our media would never stand for any subtrifuge. Source of truth, justice, and the American way, the lads and lasses at CBS and NBC are.

I viewed the "Born in Kenya" business as lame ultra right looney stuff when I first heard it, but there must be something interesting on it if he wouldn't willingly wave it and score points against the right by making them look foolish.

Given the hardcorp (pun) middle-america hating communist grandparents and Momma's colorful track record at a suprisingly early age, one can only wonder.

Might Daddy really be Cletus Jackson, the greasemonkey at the local gas station?

Tam said...

Ed,

It was a joke. ;)

Lissa said...

Has he appeared on Sesame Street yet? 'Cause it's just a matter of time.

Ed Foster said...

'Pologize. Had a rant on at the time, tripped over my something or other.

Just happened to bumble on to the comment while my testosterone was a bit elevated. I'll sit in the back row until it passes.
