McCain’s Tongue

Things are going to go downhill in the closing days of the campaign; we all know it. In honor of the coming descent into complete lack of substance, I offer the following actually-fairly-interesting (at least to me) item from The tongue jut.

Here’s the video that accompanies the article (but see the article for the full discussion):

After reading that, check out this video of McCain defending the accuracy of the “Obama supports sex education for kindergartners” ad, from a meeting today with the editorial board of the Des Moines Register. Pay particular attention to McCain’s tongue:

So, any poker players in the readership? What do you think of the tongue-jut-as-tell theory?

    When I watched the debate last week, I actually thought he just had chapped lips, which could cause the freakish tongue action. Or perhaps perhaps the redness I saw was from some pitbull lipstick. Who knows.

    Looks reptilian. Surprised it is not forked like a snake.

    The tongue jut story on seems to have been removed. My call is that the tell would correctly predict that a statement is causing McCain higher than normal stress levels at least 80% of the time, old lies that he’s told repeatedly may no longer evoke a reptilian tongue action but a new lie or one that is being challenged will almost certainly evoke it.

    Hope someone does some research on this, it won’t be me: disgusting shit like that is below my pay grade.

    no wonder he plays craps, he’d make a terrible poker player

    btw – Obama plays poker and is just as methodical, safe and sound as you might expect. This coming from a review of his play by some R pols (he joined these games to help him reach across the aisle and connect with the established Rs and Ds in IL and in DC).

    Sometimes he’s just parched, but often enough I think he knows he is stretching the truth or outright lying (depending upon the observer’s point of view)

    Hmm. You know what’s strange here? In the first screenshot above, McCain appears taller than Obama. That’s messed up cause Obama is like a foot or two taller than that creepo.

    Maybe McSame has been taking HGH and that’s why his tongue is going all weird.
