Aznar, Sex Machine?

Wonderful. A Moroccan newspaper has attributed the pregnancy of the French justice minister, Rachida Dati, to none other than José Maria Aznar! Disappointingly for those thinking that here we have the macho ibérico in all his glory, Aznar has flatly denied the rumours. He is threatening legal action against those responsible for the original report and those who echo it - which already covers more or less the entire Spanish press and a good part of the blogosphere. You never know what might happen, now that he's become a long haired intellectual!

The hero of Perejil and the Azores recently put aside his onerous workload with Murdoch's News International to tell us that his (minor) participation in the declaration of war against Iraq was the most important event to have happened in Spain in the last 200 years. He's obviously not a football fan then. It was always clear that his interest in the overthrow of Saddam Hussein was really just a product of his own desire to strut the international stage. I always thought he was a mediocre politician but he insists on confirming it with this kind of nonsense.
