MayBow's "Election 2000 Wonk Wheel" is the ultimate tool for political junkies searching for the final word on Florida's Presidential vote. "The Jargonator's" three concentric wheels, each containing 30 words, spin up to 27,000 phrases – an arsenal in the ongoing war of words about the now historic citrus classic. Words were picked from headlines, editorials, and jokes about the campaign and Florida recount.
Second in a continuing series of MayBow's Jargonators.
