Annals of Absurd Anonymity

ALEXANDER BURNS & DAVID PAUL KUHN at Politico quote someone sticking his or her neck out commenting on Palin's CBS interview.

Asked about Palin's performance in the CBS interview, a McCain official briefing reporters on condition of anonymity said: "She did fine. She's a tremendous asset and a fantastic candidate."


Look I can see how if a McCain official demands anonymity to comment on that interview, a reporter grants it. However, when the official gives the official line, there is no reason to quote the official.
