What does "spin" and "unspin" mean?
Gus, I disagree (and agree with ebrown.) For a whole lot of people watching Kerry, it's the first time they've been able to see him speak without a filter; a collection of clips showing him making Vietnam references, say. I think that simple fact had a lot to do with the impact of the debates. People who had only seen spin got to see Kerry unspun, and a lot of 'em said, hey, he's not that bad.
I am SO gonna watch this debate. I had actual nightmares about it last night. -sigh- I think it's really huge, poised to capitalize on the gains of the first debate or nullify them.
In politics, to put a spin on something means to alter the facts by twisting the truth.
