Jack Lew’s Signature: Just A Long Squiggly Line

There’s a whole pseudoscience devoted to the analysis of signatures. During the presidential primaries, the Daily Beast commissioned a handwriting guru to analyze the candidates’ signatures. Some sample wisdom: “In Romney’s case, the signature slants far to the right, a sign of one who may impulsively act first and think second. The ‘t’ bar flies way over the ‘t’ stems (in Mitt), a sign of visionary thinking that may be sandcastles in the clouds.” So what does Obama Treasury pick Jack Lew’s extremely loopy (heh) signature tell us? Well, he seems to be illiterate. Remember folks, this endearing whirligig of a John Hancock will be appearing on your dollar bills soon.  [Esquire]
