McCain supporters: You want his hand on the button? Srsly?

H/t to Mock, Paper, Scissors for finally explaining to me what was going on here. This image is — unbelievably — not Photoshopped, but is a real glimpse into the wacky mind of Senator John McCain:

The real caption reads, “US Republican presidential nominee Senator John McCain (R-AZ) reacts to almost heading the wrong way off the stage after shaking hands with Democratic presidential nominee Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) at the conclusion of the final presidential debate at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, October 15, 2008. “



  1. He sticks his tongue out a lot! Weird! Weird! Weird! And in answer to your question – NO! NO! NO!

  2. I trust you. Really, I do! But this can’t be real…. can it?

    If it is.. NO! I am not going to even think about it…

  3. Morgan’s right — he sticks his tongue out a LOT! In fact, I saw a video somewhere from the last debate that compile the 26 or so times he did it that night into one video. And supposedly it’s a reptilian response to lying. But I don’t know about that ….

    But here’s a link to the Reuters image: Presidential Debate Slideshow

    it’s for real!!!

  4. “And supposedly it’s a reptilian response to lying.”

    That I would believe! BAD. BAD. Spit it out. Or from his childhood…the bad taste of soap in his mouth when his mom would wash it out for lying. I do believe in some way it is a pyschological response.

  5. And I’m not saying McCain’s a reptile, but it’s supposedly one of those freaky things that are deep in our brain and never worked out through evolution — you know, if you believe in that sort of thing.

  6. anyone notice that roger clemens did the exact same thing when he was testifing to congress on his use of steriods. his tongue was lapping just like mccains. both are incredible liars.

  7. Have you seen the new Obama ad about the “george bush” thing? It’s hysterical, and uses all McCain’s facial expression to perfection. I think this pic, which I also used, has been everywhere. I think i”ve seen it on 5 blogs now. too funny.
