Necktie width: to have and have knot

Mitt Romney's concession speech was a break from his usual M.O. in a couple of ways: 1. For once he didn't say anything even remotely dickish. And 2. He wore a skinnier tie and a littler knot than we've previously seen. If one subscribes to the school of thought that the necktie is a substitute weenie, then this shift does nothing to suggest otherwise: the defeated Mitt's tie looks deflated, flaccid, and powerless. Which for a man with a car elevator in his house is no small achievement.
