Via ABC's Jake Tapper:

Sources tell ABC News that President Obama has decided that he will nominate Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., to be secretary of state.

Everybody on the Tee Vee Machine has been saying this for days. Good thing "sources" are out there to confirm what we already know. So can we also say, some say that sources say that John Kerry's in like Flynn? Why yes, yes we can.

We can also now say, "officially" and with some certainty, that sources know stuff.

Yes, former Worst Person in the World David Zurawik, Keith is exactly like Joe McCarthy and Glenn Beck.  Good grief, bitter much?

Thank you, David, for setting this nut job straight.

Keith is, indeed, a "passionate" and "valuable voice." And he will be missed... until he (hopefully) comes back. Which he will if his viewers have anything to say about it.

Source: White House to paint grim fiscal picture

So, "Source" says the White House will paint a grim fiscal picture. Source who? They never give their last name. Neither does that ubiquitous scamp, "Sources", come to think of it.

At least "Anonymous Sources" provides both a first and last name:

The White House will predict a record budget deficit in the current fiscal year and more big shortfalls for the next decade in its upcoming budget proposal, a congressional source told Reuters on Sunday.

Oh, now I recognize the name! "Congressional Source". Why didn't they just say so?

In its budget proposal to be released on Monday, the White House predicts a record $1.6 trillion budget deficit for the fiscal year that ends September 30, the Capitol Hill source said.

According to the estimate, deficits will narrow to $700 billion by fiscal 2013 before gradually rising back to $1.0 trillion by the end of the decade, the source said.

Oh, so now it's "The Source" and "Capitol Hill Source". Playing footsie with us are you?

Deficits are expected to rise again toward the end of the decade due to the increasing cost of retirement and healthcare programs as the "baby boom" generation retires. [...]

The grim forecast could help build support for a bipartisan commission proposed by the White House that would recommend ways to address long-term budget problems.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have a call coming in from "Some Say" on line 2.
