    SPIN DOC = spin doctor; a person who makes sure that all situations are managed in order to make a political candidate look as good as possible. If there's a negative story/situation, the spin doctor is responsible for turning that around, spinning it into something good.

    THE LESSER KNOWN, POLITICALLY ACTIVE EIGHTH DWARF = It's a joke. Everyone knows the seven dwarfs or knows of them but the cartoonist pretedns that there is an eight dwarf, there isn't, who is a political spin doctor.
