Your PR Spin Quote Of The Day

From an Indoor Tanning Association press release regarding Sarah Palin’s installation of a tanning bed in the Alaska Governor’s Mansion:

“Kudos to Governor Palin for standing up to dermatologists and other members of the sun scare industry who are trying to frighten Americans away from UV light.” – Dan Humiston, President of the Indoor Tanning Association

The “sun scare industry”? Now, I go to a tanning salon every now and then, but man, that’s some pretty funny flackery there.
By the way, if you like Dan Humiston’s way with words, support him for Congress! He’s running in New York’s 27th district, which includes Buffalo, another sun-starved part of America.
