Does Mary Burke Really Want to Be Wisconsin Governor

Mary Burke's bid to unseat Scott Walker: White noise
with a hint of obscure, formless past activity

There's nothing about Mary

Check out Mary Burke for Governor in Google and the first result is a fake Burke site, put out by the Republican Party of Wisconsin.

Cybersquatting sucks, but the fake site seems apropos because Mary Burke appears intent on keeping her run against Walker a closely held secret.

Walker has been running for governor for some seven years; and here we are nine months out from the general election and Burke is as dynamic as an early morning stroll down your drive-way in the cold to pick up the paper.

Walker is pursuing a radical social engineering project, and Burke is approaching the campaign with little apparent sense of urgency.

Say what you will about Walker but he campaigns hard and the air war for which Walker is well-armed has not even begun yet.

Emblematic of Burke's lassitude is the white noise emitting from the Burke campaign on the hottest political story in the U.S. right now: the titanic fall of Chris Christie.

Scott Walker, after benefitting from $15 million in support from the Republican Governors Association of which Christie is now Chair, as pointed out by One Wisconsin Now, hails Chris Christie, the most clearly corrupt governor with Walker at number two.

“He told me the same thing in private that he did to the press in New Jersey, and I have every reason to believe that the information he said is consistent with the truth, and so I still support him in his role as governor and his role in the RGA,” Walker said of Christie at an economic conference.

So what does Burke do in response? Nothing. Not a press release, not a statement to media outlets, not a beeper, not even a tweet.
I bet Scott Walker is just shivering with fear right about now. Maybe someone should contact political prognosticators,
