Governor Racicot was right on one point, though. There were plenty of chads lying around that room. A lot of people took them home as mementos, including me. Hell, they're going for five dollars apiece on eBay. Even so, that high-plains carpetbagger is missing the point: Chads don't pop out on their own, any more than they get pregnant by themselves. They fall out after being punched through by a voter. Too bad they didn't fall out November 7.
