If it goes on as long as some suggest it might, then I vote for "chad
nauseam." Note that Slate's "best" is "Gator Wait," and they seem quite
pleased with themselves about it (they describe it as "a nice play on words
that takes a second to sink in"). Well maybe it needs to keep sinking, but
it just doesn't work for me. Unless, of course, in Florida "gator" rhymes
with "water."
