All Right, All Right: Mystery Post Replaced

I guess I was too opaque or too teasing.

Having had to walk back today's big story, I'm a bit reluctant to lean very far forward. I thought I'd come up with a cute compromise. I guess not.

I took down the Mystery Post. I'll see if I can work up the fortitude to do a proper post, otherwise I'll just chill.

The intent wasn't really to tease.

I feel stupid posting a tip given what happened earlier. I really don't want to put myself out on a limb again; I don't even really do "tips" and "scoops" here. This is just a weird thing where I've been tipped three big stories in two days... one of which seems to have not panned out much. And now I'm worried that suddenly I'm doing Drudge-type stuff and going to get burned on it.

So since I teased: My information, a phrasing that now fills me with dread, is that the Obama galpal story is advancing.

I guess I can also say, um, based on a tip, which I formerly trusted but am shy about now (different source, just wondering what I'm doing being a tip blogger):

A guy who claims to have knowledge of one liaison has talked, and is willing to talk to media, and in fact has been put in touch with media.

It's always possible he'll get cold feet.

I should say: He does not have direct or hearsay evidence, just direct observation of circumstantial evidence.

It could be they were just at the George to work or somethin'.

Again, what I'm told. I'm finding this game much less fun than I did yesterday.
