New York Times Ridiculous Anonymous Source of the Day

"He has talked at some considerable length about his view on who he thinks would be qualified to be a Supreme Court justice," the official said. "And he's going to make his decision in a deliberate manner."

The official added, "At the end of the day, the president is going to decide this based on those principles, not from any pressure from the groups."
