Are the candidates lying? This is a job for Maury! ...by Sybil Adelman Sage

Which candidate will give us the change we need? Which of the things they say will they do? How can we tell who's giving it to us straight? Who's going to fight hardest for us? And whom are they going to fight with? Who has a better plan for the economy? Will privatized health care be an improvement? What do they have in mind for our school system? Which team is more environmentally conscious? Is that photo of Sarah Palin in the bathing suit for real?

Try as they may, neither Keith Olbermann, Dan Abrams, Bill O'Reilly or Chris Matthews has gotten any of the candidates to open up to our satisfaction. If this election is, as they insist, about us, let's insist they go on "The Maury Povich Show?" That's where we'll get the truth. Maury has what's needed -- lie detector tests and paternity tests. And should Sarah Palin and her mother-in-law get into a brawl, he's got those bouncers to pull them apart.
