facts are very biasedA Kerry pollster has a piece in the D.C. political newspaper The Hill this morning. He predicts a comfortable Bush win. Other blogs have already noted the prediction, but I haven't yet seen anyone comment on an amusing formulation in the piece that speaks to the political mentality of the day:
First, we simply do not defeat an incumbent president in wartime. After wars surely, but never in their midst. Republicans have been spinning this fact for months, and they are correct.Republicans have been correctly making this factually valid observation for months, which means that they "have been spinning this." When the other side says something demonstrably true, remember: if it serves their interests -- well, then, the bastards are spinning.
For an example of actual spinning, read the Kerry pollster's piece all the way through, from the beginning. And then note what happens in the last paragraph.
