Mary Burke's Competing set of Facts

by Jerry Bader

This is campaign spot gold.  Mary Burke is asked whether she regrets the ad in which she blatantly lies about Governor Scott Walker's jobs record. Yet, when pressed, she admits it's true that unemployment is down  since Walker took office. So this is going to be her defense? That unemployment is higher than when Mary Burke left the Doyle administration but lower than when Scott Walker took office so unemployment is up in the time Walker's been in office.

You don't suppose Graeme Zielinski wrote that spot, do you? It would explain sooooo much.
