Can you tell us how the President of the free world has time to star in a Discovery Channel series???
If ever there was gimmick to gain some approval ratings…
President Barack Obama is slated to make a guest appearance on the show, Mythbusters. In the episode, our President challenges hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman to look into an ancient Greek myth and prove that "scientist and polymath Archimedes set fire to an invading Roman fleet using only mirrors and the reflected rays of the sun."
Really? You're not even going to tie the show's mystery-solving skills into something more topical?! You know we're still in a recession right? And that we've got troops still overseas fighting?
We're just saying, we're looking for a little more leadership and little less "celebrity", ya know?
