Now That's Spin

Kerry Picket of the Washington Times spots DNC Chairman Tim Kaine spinning like a propeller to defend Harry Reid:

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine defended Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D – NV) on Fox News Sunday (video below) over controversial comments Mr. Reid made about President Barack Obama on the 2008 campaign trail. Mr. Kaine explained that Senator Reid’s remarks, taken in context, were actually “positive” in nature and that the Nevada Senator was really praising Mr. Obama. This is an interesting spin. One must wonder if black Americans who are not “light-skinned” or, as Mr. Reid also put it, speak with only a “Negro dialect” should feel better that the Senate Majority Leader was just being “positive.”

GOP National Committee Chair Michael Steele is having none of it.
