John McCain wasn't at all happy with this question from a New York Times reporter about being John Kerry's potential running mate in 2004.

McCain says he won't discuss it because "everybody knows" he had a private conversation with Kerry already. Matt Yglesias says "everyone knows [McCain] was close to accepting the offer."

We think both might be overestimating how informed "everyone" is.

UPDATE:Micky Kaus thinks McCain's short fuse here is part of a debating "tactic" he often employs.
