When I first heard about this I thought it was a great idea. Finally, for once and for all, we would get definitive proof that our President is a U.S. citizen and the whole conspiracy theory thing could be put to rest.
Side note to the public; DO NOT Google “Tea Baggers” unless you have your family filter on.
Okay, back to the point.
First off, imagine the thought that had to go into this conspiracy. They had to falisfy a notice in a Hawaiian newspaper announcing the birth, then move millions of political pieces around, over almost half a century, to ensure that the first ever White Sox fan would be elected President of the United States.
Most people I know can’t plan a picnic. If there are truly folks running around who can pull something like this off we should probably just cede control.
Anyway, you can understand why I was looking forward to this episode.
Sadly, as Reuters reports via Yahoo News, such is not the case. Instead, President Obama and the Mythbusters’ crew will focus on debunking the 2,000-year-old story that Archimedes set fire to an invading Roman fleet using a system of mirrors to focus the sun’s rays.
Worse yet, President Obama wasn’t allowed to blow anything up, which is usually a staple of that show.
C’mon, admit it, the President of the United States, some C-4, it’d be fun!
I don’t know, but I guess that anything that helps keep kids in school and off police blotters should be encouraged, so I’ll probably check it out.
The show airs December 8th on the Discovery Channel..
