Wasting no time on Palin

The McCain campaign — make that the McCain/Palin campaign — wasted no time in getting the veep pick onto video and onto YouTube.

Here’s their Web ad:

From this we know
1. They’ve been working on it for at least a couple of days.
and even more important,
2. They were able to keep it quiet.

So much so that they took the national media by surprise…or maybe the correct word is “shock.”

Go inside to see MSNBC’s early report, and note the candor from their embedded McCain reporter that she didn’t even have Palin on the radar.
