Is this what they call irony?

Sunday's Mark Neumann news release:

Scott Walker Launches Negative Attack Against Mark Neumann

--As Walker falters in polls, Walker launches smear attempt to compare Neumann to Nancy Pelosi

--Neumann Pledge: I will continue positive TV ads & mailers; asks Walker to do the same

Here's the kicker. If you'd like to know more about the "make nice" pledge, the contact is the former poison pen of the state Republican Party, Chris "Take No Prisoners" Lato, aka Mr. Slash and Burn. (I'm sure he will take that as a compliment.)

[Disclosure: In the days when one Repub elected called me "the roving Ayatolla of the Democratic Party," I was known to propose a few clean campaign pledges myself. I can't remember an opponent ever signing one, though, which left us free to do what had to be done.]
