Spinning a fact into a lie?

According to this blog, I'm "spinning a fact into a lie". How so? By my previous blog entry pointing out that President Obama did nothing to deserve to be nominated before February 1 of this year, I'm curious what lie I've spun? No, he wasn't talking about me specifically, just everyone out there pointing out this little problem.

It seems clear to me. He didn't do anything to deserve nomination, but this writer appears to think that's okay since Hitler and a whole host of other people have been nominated in the past who were clearly undeserving. Oh, yeah, that makes perfect sense. How silly of us to be pointing out that he shouldn't have been nominated and therefore not able to win an award that he somehow won without deserving it either way.

the other blog makes no sense. In order to even BE nominated, he should have done SOMETHING before Feburary 1. Yes, they may have included things he did after February, but that wouldn't have been considered in the original nomination, only in the final voting.

and I still don't understand how you are *spinning* anything...too academic for my little pea-brain, I guess.
