Spin…

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
WASHINGTON —

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. 😉

    The new dem congress is a waste of taxpayer’s money. The arrogant bums need to work with, not against. I don’t think they ever stopped campaigning.. putting forth tons of legislation filled with pork and idealisms that they KNOW will get vetoed. Thank God for President Bush’s moxie.

    That is a good point…. ceaseless campaigning. They have no clue how to govern. Beyond Stupid! Beyond Sad!
