If It Is Good Enough For Big Tobacco . .

That is surely what the CEOs of the big energy companies (Exxon Mobil Corp., Chevron Corp. and ConocoPhillips) were thinking when they told Congress that their companies did not participate in Vice President Cheney's energy task force in 2001.

Well, that seems not exactly to have been true, according to the Washington Post. Of course, lying to Congress is a felony, which Sen. Frank Lautenberg has pointed out to the Justice Department. (Apparently they can avoid perjury charges because the chairman of the committee, Sen. Ted Stevens, did not order them sworn in.)

Tre amusing.
