spinning the question

Bob Somerby over at the Howler
(scroll down to Spinning Nuance) points out that Kerry continues to be so consistent in his answers about his October 2002 war authority vote, critics have had to resort to spinning the question instead of the answer.

"According to Wilgoren, Kerry said he would have voted the resolution if he knew there were no WMD and no al Qaeda connection! Again, Kerry didn’t actually say this—this is Wilgoren’s assessment of what he meant. But you can’t determine if that’s what he meant unless you’re shown the actual question. And we can’t find a single source that does that." That's right. Howler says he can't find a single transcript of the actual question.
