MySpace Draws the Pols

1 Mar ’06

When the current MySpace controversy first sprung up, my reaction was that Senator Clinton would make a (brief) appearance on the story – cashing in on the controversy (as she did with Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas) just long enough to buff up her conservative cred as she plans her run in 2008.

News today that Jeanine F. Pirro, the Republican candidate for attorney general of New York who before Christmas withdrew from the race for the Senator’s seat after a most un-Christ-like bout of mud-slinging, has beaten her to the punch. In another bizarre coincidence that will invite no skepticism, “ is owned by Rupert Murdoch, who controls the News Corporation, which owns The New York Post, a publication that has often been critical of Ms. Pirro.”
