Gotta love that anonymity

How do you find out if any GOP governors were unhappy with the Palin press confer- ence? I guess you ask 'em:

Some Republican governors tell CNN they were not particularly happy with the way the Republican Governors Association press conference was executed Thursday, saying that they agreed to go as a show of GOP governors’ unity — but they ended up feeling like silent Palin supporters, since it was clearly a press conference called for her.

Quick, which governors?

The GOP governors spoke to CNN on condition of anonymity.

One called it awkward: “I’m sure you could see it on some of our faces.”

I guess you could add up the GOP governors in the world and subtract two (Palin, obviously, and Haley Barbour, who told CNN that somebody must have been "running down a rabbit trail"). Or you could wonder if the "some Republican governors" of the lede are any kin to the cutline's "Some GOP governors" who "weren't happy with how Palin's press conference unfolded."

Sometimes that old "condition of anonymity" doesn't go as far as it used to.
