WPXI ^ | October 18, 2010

Posted on 10/18/2010 4:53:28 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

WASHINGTON -- 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?

Will they be investigating the popular MSM mythology that Zero isn't a Marxist scumbag?

Perhaps the one where he isn't a muslim?

Maybe the one where bill ayers didn't write his book?

Hopefully, the myths being tested include “you can keep your doctor and health care plan”, “tax cuts of 70 billion per year caused a $2,000 billion deficit” and “I have a valid birth certificate”.

Hopefully they’ll bust the myth of the democrats being a friend of the working class, since most socialist programs and tax increases hurt the poor the most by keeping them that way.

I myself don’t believe Obama is eligible but I agree that Cass Sunstein has likely inserted a lot of false info into the argument.

Sunstein himself has spoken about getting opposition to chase false conspiracy theories to cloud issues and discredit opposition.

After the series airs, obama will mandate that NASA and the military perfect the Archimedes mirror system as a “green” defense initiative that will help save the planet. The use of conventional weapons will be banned until the new system is ready. The old systems will be donated to various muzzl’em countries as a sign of goodwill, cultural interchange, and military cooperation. NASA will be in charge of the muzzl’em end of the project, as well.

The staff of mythbusters will be put in charge of the Departments of Defense and Education and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Their mission will be to further develop military and civilian uses for windmills and parabolic mirrors.

Their first project for obama is to design windmills to be placed on top of all road vehicles, trains, boats, and planes to generate electricity (while they are parked and in motion) to charge batteries and run on-board electrical systems. When complete, this project will save hundreds of billions of dollars each week. The Mythbusters are already visiting junkyards and the Battle Bots lot for equipment.

UGH! One of the few shows we actually watch now suffers from Obamacontamination.

Guess we'll have to mark it on our calendars a 'must miss' episode.

Next, he’ll be sporting a moustache and be on Orange County Chopper. Is it too much to ask for a well-aimed lightning stroke? Or at least some white-coated guys with a butterfly net?

I saw that episode, so they must be “revisiting” the topic.

I LOVE Mythbusters! One of he best episodes was “Airplane on a treadmill,” but I loved the exploding hot water heater and rocket sled episodes too.

In the best traditions of North Korean Juche, Obama’s ever-smiling visage will be the sun powering Archimedes’ invention and allowing the resolute workers (SEIU) to destroy capitalist Roman exploiters (Republicans).

Even Chum Lee on Pawn Stars would suspect the item as being stolen if Zero brought the Churchill bust to Gold & Silver Pawn Shop.

Myth Busters is now BUSTED! Anyway, most of their stuff is totally predictable to any high school student without an "experiment".

It was always just an excuse to blow things up...

Now they've blown themselves UP, and away. obimbo is the kiss of death.

Discovery channel was founded based on a BBC investment and is run by former staffers from ABC's Nightline !

The leftist media trolls are deeply buried in every avenue of propaganda !
