Politician Litmus Test

  [vote for,

       it's funny that this always comes up. But do we really want politicians that always tell the truth? Liar, Liar comes to mind :)

       What I want is not a politician who tells the truth so much as one who will listen to it.

       No there has to be a simple machine that indicates the truth is either 1) out there 2)in here. Objects placed in the device including politicians get one out of the two indicator lights.
