What Do You Call A Secret Held By 40 People? "Not a Secret"

Buzzfeed and the Huffington Post are reporting an off-the-record meeting of Mitt and Ann Romney with various and sundry representatives of the online right yesterday.

This is a weird thing, because even the fact that it occurred is off-the-record, and yet a big website, and also Buzzfeed, are reporting it. I don't want to say anything about it, but I also think it's absurd to embargo things that most people know now.

That said, I won't comment on it. Unlike some, I don't feel the need to help liberal reporters and websites get hits, and I don't want to promote myself by putting out stories.

I have to note, defensively, that BuzzFeedBen is greasing me a little, calling me a "virtuoso," which is the sort of nice thing you say about a source.

But BuzzfeedBen knows I didn't talk to him, and I hereby authorize him to reveal any and all communications I've had with him about this (of which there are none).

Alternately... I suppose it could be highligting me, because I curse a lot and that might be a problem for some voters or something.
