Something You Probably Didn't Learn in Poli Sci

Ads for Recount: The Story of the 2000 Presidential Election, are plastered all over NYC. Here are a few: "swinging chad," "hanging chad" and "pregnant chad."

Each refers to a punch card that ballot machines may have trouble reading. The subtext isn't quite a definition of the phrase; it's more like a description of how political minds saw them in the context of the 2000 election. (Remember Florida?)

Witty.

See the actual definitions for these terms. Next time you pass by one of these posters, snicker like you're in the know.
