New Mexico's Own Republican Spinmiester Back !

Whitney Cheshire, New Mexico's Republican Spinmiester is back blogging again at her slightly Republican slanted blog. She was AWOL for nearly a month returning today for one of the most laughable posts in her blogs history. Today's post (April 30, 2007) was really interesting after a weekend in which the Republican Party was divided not only over their candidates for party chair but also over whether a good chunk of the Bernallilo County delegates including Whitney could even vote. I often find it most amusing when she attempts to put a spin on bad news for the Republican Party. Her recent posts trying to pull U.S. Senator Pete Dominici out of the hole he has dug for himself over the firing of U.S. Attorney David Iglesias were laughable at a minimum and ridiculous for the most part.

Her spin factory was in high gear as she tried to play down the divisiveness that prevailed at the Republican Convention. She bashes fellow blogger Joe Monahan whom many (myself included) consider to be one of the premier political bloggers in New Mexico. Yes Joe may not walk on water but Whitney's constant bashing of his blog and her constant spinning of the truth whenever a Republican is involved leaves her with little credibility in the political blog world. I think of her as the Fox Network of the Blogging world. Instead of "we report, you decide" it actually is "we distort, you comply".

You're right on with Whitney's failing attempt to spin Pete's involvement in the whole Iglesias firing. It's only topped by her excuses for being happy that David Iglesias was fired. (after all, imagine Iglesias' gall! Not scheduling his court cases around Heather's election needs!)

It'd be nice if she actually had all of the evidence she claimed, but that's another post for another time.


P.S. I loved the "Fox Network of the Blogging World" comment. ;)
