Would-be Obama skeleton to put truth to test
Larry Sinclair is putting his money where he claims Barack's mouth was. The man who became a viral video sensation after claiming on YouTube that he had a drug-fueled affair with Barack Obama, has now agreed to put his claims to the test of a lie detector! PageOneQ has more:
The whole thing is being set up by the WhiteHouse.com website (no affiliation with the actual ivory-colored home-business), who will pay Sinclair $10,000 just for participating and a whopping $100,000 if he passes. And the stunt is undoubtedly also being monitored closely by HillaryClinton.com, who will likely shit themselves if the latter scenario comes to fruition.
Only problem is that anyone can pass a lie detector test if they convince themselves of it, hence why they are not admissable in court. For example, a crazy person could pass a lie detector test about talking to God, that wouldn't make it true, but it is true in their mind. Maybe this shmo wants to be with Obama and has convinced himself of it, or the cocaine convinced him it was Obama and it was just some guy (or even, maybe Obama was on the TV in the limo, so he visualized him). The crack pots are coming out of the woodwork now.

It's true, Matt. However, the court of public opinion might have a hard time with this one if (a) Mr. Sinclair passes, and (b) the mainstream media seizes on it.
Here's hoping for everyone's sake that it's complete bullshit. If true, it would be sad in many ways.

Totally agree. Public opinion always likes to gravitate to scandals (however true or malicious).

Oh, come on. A polygraph test? Any decent actor can pass a polygraph test. And if public opinion doesn't realise that, then public opinion needs to get educated.
Oh... right. Point made.

Well Willie, it would require two variables. (a) The test to come back in support of Mr. Sinclair's claims, and (b) the mainstream media to pick up on it. If both happen, then yes, a vast majority will start looking at Obama in a whole new light.
