Want another piece of evidence that Republicans believe pre-election spinning is important? Check out WaPo's "crystal ball" feature today, providing projections from "experts" about what's going to happen on Tuesday.
Republican spinmeisters Tony Snow, Bill Kristol and Ann Coulter all predicted historic GOP landslides: Bush by five percent, and well over 300 in electoral votes, supplemented by big Republican gains in Senate, House and gubernatorial contests. Democratic pundit Donna Brazile, by contrast, predicted a narrow Kerry win, and small Democratic gains elsewhere.
Brazile's being honest if optimistic. Snow, Kristol and Coulter are just spinning.
