I love this kind of old-school pettiness at The Washington Post:

Obama said he and Vice President Biden talked Monday morning about an article in a Washington newspaper in which a Republicans aide was quoted as saying the aide was not sure why the GOP would want to cooperate with the president because it's not good for the party's politics."

"A Washington newspaper" could only mean one thing at The Washington Post.
