Wynn on Spitzer by way of Dodd on Clinton

I suspect the Eliot Spitzer thing is pretty over over there, but this was such a funny little nugget from last week's Steve Wynn chat that I really had to get it out there.

I was curious about his take on Spitzer, who Wynn said he hadn't ever met, and he offered this anecdote about Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn.:

Friess: You’re a powerful man who has everything going for you. Why do powerful men who have everything going for them do stupid things?

Wynn: [pause, deep sigh] I think, truth be known, Steve, that on the subject of sex, that one subject, there’s more hypocrisy in this world than anybody ever dreamed. ... Everybody lies about sex. This is a crack that Chris Dodd made when we were playing golf at Shadow Creek one day. We were talking about Clinton.. I said, ‘America’s got to get over vetting politicians by checking their sex life. Everybody lies about sex. Don’t go there. Men and women don’t tell the truth about the subject. Sex is sort of a weird area of human behavior. And then Chris Dodd, it as on the 18th green, made the funniest remark. He said, ‘Steve, most people lie during sex!’ That was a good one, wasn’t it?

Yes, sir. It sure is.
