TEH GOOGLE….Peter Wallsten of the LA Times talks to a GOP strategist about how deeply the McCain campaign vetted Sarah Palin before announcing her to the world last Friday:

According to this Republican, who would discuss internal campaign strategizing only on condition of anonymity, the McCain team used little more than a Google Internet search as part of a rushed effort to review Palin’s potential pitfalls. Just over a week ago, Palin was not on McCain’s short list of potential running mates, the Republican said.

Noted without comment, because I’m just commented out. This stuff isn’t even coming from the gamma quadrant anymore. It’s from another galaxy entirely. At this point, I don’t think I’d trust McCain to help me shop for a used car, let alone run the country.
