President Obama is expected to pick Jack Lew to be the next Treasury Secretary. If confirmed by Congress, that makes him the guy autographing your dollar bills.
And his autograph is insane.
It is also not, strictly speaking, an autograph. It is a doddle. Or series of cursive O's (or, equally, of upside-down cursive E's) or "a Slinky that has lost its spring," or a visual expression of the weary hollowness of identity, or just a really awful signature.
