Just behind the curtain, stage right

Walker has taken on the mien of an above-it-all statesman regarding this entire fracas, yet says he was aware of it months ago (!). Gee, how very interesting that the accusation popped up just now, on the eve of an election much closer than Republicans expected. Then Walker implies the news coverage may be justifiable, in that reporters have not properly “vetted” Burke’s career and background, which is simply untrue.

But something else: That exact word, “vetted,” was as of yesterday in common use as a conservative talking point on numerous partisan web sites regurgitating the accusation….

Via In the matter of the stupid, eleventh-hour accusations against Mary Burke, a strong set of Republican “tells” @  Uppity Wisconsin.
