Lie Detector To Be Used in Political Debate

Well, things are a changing! The Associated Press reported that two challengers for an Indiana congressional seat have agreed to strap on a lie detector and have at it during a debate. The article quotes Alan Johnson, dean of Vincennes University’s Jasper Campus as saying:

Our planning committee worked up the format and rules, and we are not inviting negotiations from the candidates.

Could you imagine this becoming standard operating procedure at a debate? This is very exciting. Imagine the size of the audience if we added a small electric shock every time the candidate lies. The advertising revenue for this kind of a televised debate could take a big chunk out of the national debt.
