Chronicling The Washington Post’s new guidelines on the use of anonymous sources, here’s a new one: “A senior administration official, who insisted on anonymity because he sets policy and is not a spokesman, said the White House would support such a move only in the case of a ‘severe supply disruption’ such as an embargo or a political crisis in a major oil-producing crisis.”

Well, hell, just about anybody but White House press secretary Scott McClellan and a few others can use that one.
