A Match Made Some Place We Don't Want To Go

Facing a wee bit of a PR problem, BP has hired, the slime still fresh on her, Dick
Cheney's former press secretary to make up more facts for the American public. Anne Womack-Kolton, who also did PR for the
Department of Energy under George W., defended the secrecy of the
energy task force under Cheney, who was the head of Halliburton, which
helped run the rig that exploded, which made BP's CEO want to get his
life back, which led BP to start thinking they needed to find someone
else to convince us it will all be okay. Oh, these people will all get
along just fine. More on Womack-Kolton's illustrious if oil-slicked
career here and here.
