Available For Clown Parties, Too.


I've been down for the count concerning current events for about a month due to some personal issues.

And though this issue is not very pressing, it is amazing that Obama continues to dumb down the electorate with talk-show appearances and History Channel video-ops.

Now, Barry is to be showcased on the "Mythbusters" show.

I used to like the "Mythbusters."

Hosts Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage test myths, science experiments, and the possible outcomes of questionable actions.

Everytime I turn on the Discovery Channel, it seems like they are on, but the hour consists of a repeat. Though they seem to have lost their luster recently, is this really, as they like to parrot, "All in the name of science?"

From usatoday.com:


(Barry looks like a Madame Tussuad's reproduction of a bad Hasbro action figure.)

"The legend: Ancient Greek scientist Archimedes set fire to an invading Roman fleet using mirrors to reflect the rays of the sun, creating fire.

Modern scientists have questioned whether this could happen, and the Discovery Channel's Mythbusters are planning a program on their work featuring a celebrity spokesman: President Obama.

Obama discusses his Dec. 8 appearance on Mythbusters during today's White House Science Fair, honoring winning exhibits in science, technology, engineering, and math.

The president announced the competition nearly a year ago:

"If you win the NCAA championship, you come to the White House," Obama said back then. "Well, if you're a young person and you produce the best experiment or design, the best hardware or software, you ought to be recognized for that achievement, too."

The Discovery Channel is touting the presidential appearance, which has been taped:

President Obama will be featured in the December 8 MYTHBUSTERS episode, Archimedes Solar Ray, during which he challenges hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman to revisit an ancient and somewhat controversial myth: Did Greek scientist and polymath Archimedes set fire to an invading Roman fleet using only mirrors and the reflected rays of the sun?

Will Adam and Jamie be able to pull this off, or will they have to report back to the President that they failed?


Christ on Friday.

Does Pres. Hizzidy Wizard have some here-to-for unknown secrets concerning the "Death Ray." Or is he just looking for a more feasible way to burn Republicans like the pestering ants they are?

Next up? "Prancing with the Czars?"

This jive-turkey is a one-man billboard. Friggin' pathetic. Pimping himself out as a "celebrity."

Hey 'Busters.

Want to prove just how screwed we are?

Try achieving the goal set forth in "Brewster's Millions."

But make it "'Barack's Trillions."

See if it is possible to spend a trillion dollars of other people's money without any benefit to anyone else, just with the stroke of a pen, buying off millions of dollars worth of congressional votes. And in the process, not really letting anyone else know what you are doing.

How about busting the "myth" that more muslims are killed by muslims than "infidels?"

How about taking a simple shovel, sinking it into the ground, and getting paid for it with all of our "infrastructure" job-creation propositions?

What more can be said about someone like this self-aggrandizing, self-promotional, delusional simpleton who believes flashing his caps and activating the satellite dishes he calls ears is worthy of the office he currently holds?

What's next? Boxers or briefs? Playing sax on a late-night show? Making fun of Special Olympics children?

Oh, wait..

What. An. Ass.

Myth: A television program... (Below threshold)

Myth: A television program is near the end of its run when it has to resort to special guest appearances by celebrities and politicians.

This 'myth' about Archimedes and the mirrors has ALREADY been done on the show. I saw it about a 1-2 years ago. Wonder if this will be a rerun with some new footage of the President added. What a joke! I guess this is one of the new 'green jobs' and 'green technology' that our defense department will be deploying.

And now, a Very Special Episode of Mythbusters.

Yes, it's true that the topic has already been covered ... and the Mythbusters weren't able to do it.

Our President is only interested in re-creating known failures.

See, the problem with the original test is that they didn't use any styrofoam columns.

Shawn, I gotta disagree with you. I've been a fan of Mythbusters from the start too (hell, I remember them from Battlebots!), and I'm actually looking forward to this. When I heard about it, I hoped it was presidential myths, but I'm fine with this.

But damn, Chone, that was some weapons-grade snark you deployed here. "Prancing With The Czars?" I'm seriously jealous over that line.

I am gonna make one tiny little edit on your piece, though... your "Oh, wait..." is just begging to be a link for those who might not recall.


I think Obama has a talent ... (Below threshold)

I think Obama has a talent manager-czar. Always promoting himself in a very carefully choreographed manner. And prolifically so. You can't get away from him. He's constantly thrusting himself into everything from talk shows to comedy shows to everything. He has never stopped campaigning.

This is one thing Pres. Obama has done I agree with. Sure, he'll act like prize is meeting his wonderful self but...
Bring the young science nerds to the White House. The winner should also be given a VIP tour of the Smithsonian Institution facilities. Discovery could make that into a multi-episode program.
then next year do another big science museum, or double up ones in the smae city. Such as Philadelphia's museum of Natural History, The Franklin Institute and the Mutter Museum.

Debunking the myth that Obama's intelligent and has an ability to lead has already been done. Why have him on?

Once again Obama cheapens the office of President of the United States. What's next, a stint on 'All My Children', having Erica Kane receive a Presidential Citation? Maybe he and Michelle can tout their government-mandated eating program on 'The Biggest Loser'. Oh, wait...he can present the Best Picture Oscar at the Academy Awards.

Big Mo:

I really don't find anything wrong with this, as the president is actually right about lauding the "best experiment or design, the best hardware or software."

Have you noticed the picture of Jamie and Adam? Do they know something about the need to protect the family jewels around the president that we don't know?

If Obama really wanted to have some fun with this, he could have challenged them with the myths surrounding his birth. Given that they have already done the "death ray" myth, I don't understand why they want to do it again unless they have a new approach.

"But seriously guys, mine is this big."

Oh, hell. Wrong blog.

What are they gonna do? Debunk the myth that Barry was born in Hawaii?

Once again Obama cheapens the office of President of the United States.
It's what he does.

Even so, this isn't an example of him cheapening the presidency. It's an example of him cheapening "Mythbusters."

Who's after dumbo? Ted (The Show Killer) McGinley??

Well, they ARE based in San Francisco. If Pelosi calls you up to go see the Prez, you go - or possibly find a horsehead in your bed some day. (Not a ballistics gelatin over a clean skeleton one, either...)

You can imagine the call... "Oh, you don't want to do a segment with the President? Hmmm, that's fine. No, really, it's fine. By the way, we've seen a few things on your show that might interest OSHA, and you've got local haz-waste permits to dump all that ballistics gel stuff, right? And where do you keep your firearms? Didn't we see you break a few flourescent bulbs, too? Did you get those cleaned up properly, with the correct permits? And your offices ARE up to code, and could pass a fire marshal inspection, right? Sure seems kind of cluttered, and you know how hazardou...

"Oh, what was that? You've found an opening in your calendar? That's great! When can we tell the President to expect you?"

Makes me wonder if they're not thinking it might be time to get out of the area...

Quote from the Fox News art... (Below threshold)

Quote from the Fox News article of the same topic:

"I didn't get to blow anything up. I was a little frustrated by that."

I wonder what would of happened if Bush would have said something like that.


In any case, I'm just happy that our Dear Leader had a chance to take a break from all that rigorous campaigning. It's not like he has a real job to do anyway.

Should have asked him to help with golf myths...
