Priorities. Finally! The House has opened an investigation into whether or not someone was lying to Congress and the American people. Who are they investigating? Is it Bush lying about Iraq's WMD capabilities? Cheney lying about Iraq's ambitions for a nuclear program? Condi lying about pre-9/11 intelligence? Bolton lying about his role in the leaking of classified information?

No! It's Rafael Palmeiro!
ANAHEIM, Calif., Aug. 3 -- The House Government Reform Committee -- which heard Baltimore Orioles first baseman Rafael Palmeiro's testimony in March that he had never used steroids, while he jabbed his index finger in the air for emphasis -- has opened an investigation into whether Palmeiro may have lied under oath.

Committee Chairman Rep. Thomas M. Davis III (R-Va.) spoke by telephone with Palmeiro -- suspended Monday for violating baseball's steroid policy -- on Tuesday night and informed him of the committee's plan to investigate the veracity of his March 17 testimony. During the conversation, Davis said, Palmeiro pledged to cooperate with the inquiry and repeated his assertion, first made during a conference call with reporters on Monday, that he did not know how the substance got into his system.
