    Rather than say that they didn't care about climate change, they argued that it shouldn't be done by the EPA.

    Now, could this work? It will depend on how sensitive to the charge of be a lying hypocrite they are.

    I know similar logic worked on me - for years I told the kids that we could not have a dog as it was unfair to the dog as my husband and I both worked. In reality, I did not want a dog. But, when my youngest daughter's eyes lit up when I told the kids I was taking an early retirement offer, I quickly learned the reason you don't give false reasons. We got a puppy.

    I suspect Senators are less likely to care, but who knows - there was some reason they gave that excuse.
