Everybody Lies, That's Why They Call It Politics

Former Philadelphia Mayor Ed Rendell, now a candidate for governor of Pennsylvania, has been poking fun at his Republican opponent, Mike Fisher, for running an ad in which an actor posed as a cabbie. Rendell has cut an ad featuring actual cabbies.

Gar Joseph of the Philadelphia Daily News phoned one such cabbie. Here's part of the conversation:

"Did the Rendell people ask if you really support him."

"No, they told us what to say."

"Did they pay you?"

"50 dollars."

"Are you actually going to vote for Rendell?"

"I can't. I'm not a citizen yet."
