Final Word from Tuesday, August 24, 2004

If your spouse ever accuses you of infidelity, Czech sexologists say, you should deny it, deny it, deny it. Even if you're caught in the act, they say, you should still deny it. Bill Clinton took denial to new heights with his famous "I did not have sex with that woman." His case rested largely on an inventive definition of "sex." The recent Czech version of Clinton's defense has been, "We did not offer a bribe to that man." That man, of course, is MP Zdeněk Kořistka, and "we" is ODS. Mirek Topolánek sent his envoys to talk to Kořistka about bringing down the Gross cabinet, and there's speculation that Kořistka is part of a scheme to discredit the ODS chairman. Topolánek has already been dragged into a debate about just what a "bribe" is. Topolánek is in a better position than Clinton was, though, because this time there's no stained dress to determine who's lying. unfaithfulness marital
