Politifact gets it "mostly right."

by Jerry Bader

You can almost tell how much it pained Politifact Wisconsin to admit that Scott Walker was telling the truth when he said Trek makes 99% of its bicycles overseas. So in validating that claim they call out Walker for calling the company "Mary Burke's Trek." Sorry, she co-opted the company for her campaign; now she owns it.

This renews the question of whether the Walker campaign is making a mistake in the populist note on outsourcing typically reserved for the left. I don't think so. The charge here is liberal hypocrisy. Let it ride.
