Condit Wins the Bimbo Award

Gary Condit didn't just "injure" himself in his August 23 interview with Connie Chung -- he immolated himself, says PR pro Fraser P. Seitel. Other PR pros agree with this assessment. His performance was so bad that Spaeth Communications has awarded him its "Bimbo Award" for telling Chung, "I don't think I'm stonewalling." Merrie Spaeth, former Director of Media for President Reagan, gives the Bimbo Award to people whose denials are so unconvincing that they actually reinforce the impression they are trying to dispel.
