The lawyers and judge will see right through your act and pick you.

No, in fact most defense attorneys would prefer it.

No. There's no particular reason why that would cause one or the other side not to want you.
The best way is to indicate that there's a reason you wouldn't necessarily be able to decide a verdict objectively. The last time I was called, for an armed robbery case, I was asked whether I or a relative or a friend had ever been the victim of a gun crime. I answered truthfully that a family friend had been murdered in a gun crime. When asked whether I would be able to remain objective about the case, I hesitated.
I knew very well that the defense wouldn't want me, and it didn't. It helped, too, that I was by far the best-educated member of the jury pool. Advanced education also tends to be something lawyers don't want in a juror, though that is not a hard and fast rule.

No, you would look like someone that can be easily swayed,, exactly what the attorneys are looking for in a juror.

No. You need a genuine reason to ask for excusal. What's your problem? I found it fascinating when I did it.

The best way to get out of jury duty is to be smarter than the lawyers.
