Slate Magazine [on McCain/Palin vetting process]

Hmm -- so this may turn into a fascinating case study on the effectiveness of (rushed...) Internet content-based information analysis

The LAT talks to one Republican who says McCain's staff "vetted her through Google and clipping services." That sounds like an exaggeration but the NYT talks to state leaders and local officials in Alaska who say none of them were called by McCain's campaign during the vetting process. This was at least partly because of a desire to keep the selection secret until the last minute, but some now think McCain could come to regret this focus on secrecy, which may have come at the expense of more thorough vetting.
