Here is his direct-from-McCain reporting on the Palin decision a month ago:

[W]hat [McCain] saw when he looked at her, according to the people I spoke to, is someone who fights the same fights I fight. The first gateway sort of fight that he thought they have in common was the bridge to nowhere. He's been talking about that for years. She's the one who killed it.

Except she didn't, as everyone now knows. She lobbied for it and kept the money when the feds killed it. You have to wonder about a vetting process that didn't even get past step one.
