Oil Execs and the "Hot Seat"

Dana Milbank's "Washington Sketch" pieces for the Washington Post have become a sort of snarky blog/column hybrid; I usually find them quite enjoyable. Today's, "Oil and Grilling Don't Mix," is no exception. Milbank describes yesterday's hearing of the Senate Energy and Commerce Committees, in which several oil company execs were hauled before the panel to explain how they can reconcile record profit margins with record-high gas prices. Milbank's account is worth a read, and Crooks & Liars put up some video clips from the hearing as well. As usual, Ted Stevens proves himself a true friend of big oil and a gigantic old grouch at the same time.
