Spinner

As the election nears, both candidates are struggling to give a new twist to points they've made over and over. John Kerry did a nice job with this remark, quoted in a Boston Globe article:
''The simple fact is, this president is out of touch, and he's out of ideas, and we need a president who can change that," Kerry told an audience comprised mostly of women at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. ''I'll tell you what: This president can spin until he's dizzy. But at the end of the day, who does he think American women are going to believe? Him, or their own eyes?"
I like the pun on "spin."
