The Lexicon of Spin II

Lynn Swann complains to the Associated Press that the Rendell camp is scaring away potential contributors to his campaign.

Quote: "His party machinery is out there putting the squeeze on people, saying `don't contribute to Swann's campaign,'" Swann told the AP.

Swann said he has heard of "more than five, less than 20" instances in which potential donors said they "felt pressure" from people connected to Gov. Ed Rendell or simply assumed on their own that contributing to Swann's campaign might hurt their chances of winning a contract or grant."

Translation: "I am having a hell of a time raising money."

Lynn Swann needs to talk to my grandmom...she was no where near a political operative but I think that her advise would be fitting: She would tell the Steeler that he if "you can't take the heat, honey...get out of the kitchen."

This makes him out to be even more of a novice than his Roe v. Wade gaffe.
