Special Spin Award

By the power invested in me as a blogger, I hereby convey a Special Spin Award to Santorum campaign spokesman Hogan Gidley, who had this to say about today’s District of Columbia primary:

We expect Mitt Romney to do well in the D.C., area, no shock there, in fact it might even be unanimous — I don’t know that we’ll pick up a single vote in D.C. because of the vitriol D.C. has for a someone like Rick Santorum who wants to shake things up here in Washington.

Yeah, that and the fact that the Santorum campaign failed to pay the filing fee necessary to get its candidate on the D.C. ballot.

Nice work, Hogan.
