You can expect politicians and political parties to spin, especially when it comes to the Democrats. Oftentimes, that spin is a fine art of walking the line between fact and total, laughable fiction. This spin usually involves taking an indicator out of context or using only a cherry-picked portion of the data to support whatever assertion they’re trying to make. Normally, these assertions are supported by just enough facts to make them believable, and just distant enough from the full truth to make others question them. Sure it takes a creative license to invent these spun narratives, but sometimes it takes an imaginative mind to interpret these talking points as intended.
