128. Obama isn't even my fourth choice, but I resent anyone saying he's "spinning"...
when all he did was speak the truth (about our resentment).

"Spinning" is a filthy, dirty accusation to lay at the door of someone who needn't bother and, this being DU and not Freeperville, we shouldn't have to resort to hyperbole to get the point across. I realize it's a minor point, but I, personally, detest "spin" as a Republic tool, and the word needs to be used lightly, as well as accurately, in reference to any (D) candidate - especially when substituted for the words "fact", "true" or "truth".

Dana Perino, on the other hand, needs to have a pea soup pump installed so the masses and others with a limited edumacation can learn the definition of "spin" and how to spot it.
