The $2,000 Obama Doodle, Analyzed

The doodle Barack Obama sketched during a Senate session that sold last year for $2,000 was analyzed this morning by an expert on MSNBC. Like a kid bored in class, Obama drew a scene from the Senate floor depicting senators Chuck Schumer, Harry Reid, Dianne Feinstein, and Teddy Kennedy. “It’s consistent with his handwriting,” said a handwriting and art analyst. “He fills up the whole space which shows a need for attention. It also shows that he’s flexible, very analytical and very private. He also has an inflated ego, which you probably need if you want to be President.” The strike through the “O” shows his ambivalence towards his name, she added. Finally, the two figures facing left and two facing front may be a subliminal nod to his left-centrist politics.
