Gannon to Take Polygraph

Good lord, for someone who was allegedly distressed by how his life was torn apart with media attention after he was outed as a gay male prostitute masquerading as a White House press correspondent with dubious journalistic credentials, Jeff Gannon sure does like to be on the ol’ telly:
Tonight's the night many (OK, at least a few) have been waiting for: The news personality formerly known as James D. Guckert takes a lie detector test -- on national TV, no less.

The man with the checkered, male escort, past rode to fame recently as White House correspondent for GOPUSA and Talon News, tossing softball questions at press briefings and then taking a hike. Tonight at 8 p.m on widely available cable channel PAX, Gannon will appear on the show "Lie Detector," hosted by Rolonda ("Inside Edition") Watts. Gannon confirms this on his own Web site.
(As a side note, Mr. Furious is madly in love with Rolonda Watts, back from the days she hosted the Rolonda! show, so I’m sure he’ll be tuning in.)
The gimmick for the show, as described on the PAX Web site: "This provocative and often surprising series examines the truth behind real-life stories ripped from the headlines, using the most powerful instrument to detect deception -- the polygraph."

Among the questions Gannon will experience strapped to the machine: Was he fed questions by the Bush administration to use as talking points at White House briefings or was he "just a man trying to overcome his past and pursue a career as a journalist?"
How about this question: Were you having sex with anyone who is employed by the Bush administration? Dunno, seems kind of obvious to me.
Other guests tonight: a man who wants to prove to his girlfriend that he no longer smokes pot; and one of Sen. John Kerry's Swift boat colleagues "who says he was threatened by a political operative, fired by his company and is currently broke because he refused to stand with Kerry at the Democratic Convention."
Wow, sounds like an episode you don’t want to miss!
