I had never heard of this word. I figured it was a fake, a Democrat ploy. This will teach me to never question the NYT.

Watch it Lars!!! Last time I told somebody around here "i feel ya" they almost ran me off.

But, as for "chad" wonder how many points we can get with it on the scrabble game, shucks I never knew it was a word.

I never knew the term either... my cute, but 'geeky' hubby did though.

Gosh, I love that guy..sorry..OT!!!

c (3) h (4) a (1) d (2)-you would get a straight ten points in scrabble for this word, unless you place it on a double or triple word score, or if you can get the c or the h on a multiple letter score. The possibilities are multitudinous, but I would say the range of scrabble scores would be 10 to 35.

Isn't there a penalty for incorrectly challenging a word? Until this week, I would have challenged "chad", being quite certain it was simply a small country in Africa.

Lose a turn, Lars. Tragic.
