Dusting for fingerprints

Yesterday I speculated the Auntie-Gate was indeed the October Surprise, but that so far no suggestions had surfaced that John McCain and his supporters had a role.

Well, I didn't dig deep enough. (Hat tip to Dan Kennedy too.)

There is still no direct connection to McCain, but as the AP notes:
Information about the deportation case was disclosed and confirmed by two separate sources, one a federal law enforcement official. The information they made available is known to officials in the federal government, but the AP could not establish whether anyone at a political level in the Bush administration or in the McCain campaign had been involved in its release.
Not to worry though. The one-time crackerjack fear and smear machine stepped on its own message.
