John McCain revealed what he really thinks about his choice of Sarah Palin as his running mate on a recent broadcast of 60 Minutes.

Correspondent Scott Pelley, inquiring about McCain’s choice of Sarah Palin, asked,

“In your judgment, can you see her as President of the United States?”

McCain verbally answered, “Absolutely,” while at the same time shaking his head, “No.”

Pelley repeated, “As President of the United States?”

And McCain replied, “Absolutely, absolutely,” while continuing to shake his head, “No, no.”

In both instances, McCain’s verbal response (“absolutely”) was contradicted by his nonverbal response (negatively shaking his head).

When a person does something like this – i.e., when a verbal message is contradicted by a nonverbal message – the nonverbal response is the truthful one.

In other words, McCain was lying.  He does not think Palin is qualified to be President.

If you have trouble believing this interpretation of McCain’s response, imagine asking someone important to you if they love you, and they reply,

“I do love you,” while they negatively shake their head.

Would you believe them?
