Gov. Sarah Palin has finished making the rounds to all the national television media. This afternoon, NBC’s Brian Williams caught up with Palin and Sen. John McCain in Green, Ohio. The interviews will air over the next three nights on Nightly News. Charlie Gibson was first to interview Palin on Sept. 11; Katie Couric followed on Sept. 28 and Williams today.

Williams teased the interview during an appearance on Hardball with Chris Matthews. After the jump, why Matthews was unimpressed.
