In Reply to: What's the origin of "more than spin"? posted by Non-native on October 08, 2004
: Is it a set expression? Or is it just more than "spin (as in the meaning of a special interpretation)"?
Spin is the favourable appearance given to matters - often political - by spin doctors. Something more than spin would require something substantial - a record of achievement or commitment.
