Bush & Obama: TIED

Take this test to see if you can tell the difference between Bush and Obama.

Despite Ann Althouse’s bet that everyone would fail the test I did a respectable 12-5. Some were easier than others simply because Bush has a bigger build. See how you do!

Of course, the fact that I did fairly well on the test may well mean that I have not been practicing media-ecology, to my detriment.

Yeah, Media-ecology. It’s a good column, you’ll like it.

    I got about the same score 4-5 wrong. It looks like Obama uses the more simple and flat four-in-hand knot, while Bush uses more of a half-windsor.

    But Obama is only a 40-42 chest? Isn’t he pretty tall? A 40-42 on a tall guy would make him rather scrawny. But then again, he is a bit of a prissy metrosexual.

    6 wrong here. I started out with the assumption that Obama had the sloppily tied 4 in hand and was write. Where I went wrong was not using that logic all the way through and letting the flag pin through me off. I think Bush is using a 4 in hand not the half windsor but does the knot better than Obama.
