What it is: a favorable bias, a heavily biased portrayal, manipulation of facts
Types of spin: just to name a few
Cherry-picking – planting questions at your campaign event…tsktsk, unheard of, I’m sure
Non-denial denial – “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”
Euphemismistic speech – pro-choice? anti-life? OR concentration camp? death camp?
Skirting – “it depends on what the meaning of is is”
Unproven truth – “just air raiding villages and killing civilians.” John Kerry? No, Barack Hussein Obama.
Had enough? I have.
So, what spun me up this time? One Event. Two News Agencies. Two Sides. Spin.
Democrats’ Plan to Tie War Funding to Troop Withdrawal Fails
Friday , November 16, 2007
Democrats failed to bring combat troops home from Iraq by December 2008 and place more restrictions on the administration’s interrogation program through a $50 billion war-funding measure.
The Senate also blocked a Republican countermeasure….blahblahblah

Democrats unable to bring troops home
By ANNE FLAHERTY, Associated Press Writer
Nearly a year after anti-war voters put them in power, congressional Democrats remain unable to pass legislation ordering troops home from Iraq. Frustrated by Republican roadblocks, Democrats now plan to sit on President Bush’s $196 billion request for war spending until next year — pushing the Pentagon toward an accounting nightmare and deepening their conflict with the White House on the war. yadayadayada
You know, if my children behaved this badly, it would be high time to institute some biblical discipline.
Bottom line for America….NOTHING gets done in Congress….AGAIN! Do we really need to wonder why Americans grow apathetic?
I spin to the right, in case you didn’t notice. 😉
