Don’t we do this every four years? And while I understand the need to find something to write about, this just seems like one of the sillier exercises. At least it isn’t about pancake flipping or about which candidate would be better company during beer quaffing.

Via the LAT: Handwriting of Hillary Clinton, John McCain and Barack Obama may speak volumes

“Obama is very much his writing — fluid, graceful. McCain’s is angular and intense; he’s a pit bull. And look at the perfectionism in Hillary’s — straight up, precise. She is persistent and is not going to give up until she absolutely has to,” said Imberman, a court-certified graphologist based in New York.

Remarkable, isn’t it, how the handwriting “analysis” so well fits the dominant narrative about the candidates? Truly amazing!

  1. This would be more interesting if they had each candidate plus a few “placebos” write the same paragraph and then do a double blind test with the handwriting analyst. If those results matched the narrative, then I’d be impressed.
